A study to prove the devaluation of shows because of Binge-watching –
In the recent study, which had taken place at the University of Melbourne, says that binge watching devalues the very importance of the show. It had taken three groups of people watching the same show, which was the first season of “The Game”.
The setting was set as one week and six weeks. The participants were later quizzed after 24 hours, one week, and then 140 days. The people who were binge watching the shows tend to forget a lot about the story and its titbits. Moreover, they also enjoyed the show significantly less.
On the other hand, the group, which watched the show in the spread of about 6 weeks or might be one episode per week had turned out to be with sharper memories and called the show more enjoyable and entertaining.
