The meaning of 'Box Set': A TV series (or sometimes film and music) that you watch and watch and watch until you realise you've switched off the rest of the world for a week because real life is nothing like as exciting as the world of 'play next episode' you've found yourself in... And then, the great gaping sense of loss that follows the final episode, and as you step out into the daylight, blinking and confused, you realise that you were right. Real life - or at least 'other' TV, like news and the like, just isn't as good... So you ask a friend, 'what should I watch next' and you get suggestions left, right, and centre. And you cannot bring yourself to begin a new one because you believe that NO love will replace the love you have just lost. Nothing could fill that hole. And you feel empty and lost inside. And then, as if it was your own idea and not the suggestion of enough friends, you finally sit down and start a new box set... And the circle of beautiful box set life continues on another cycle...
The Box Set Pod has one simple aim: Be that friend. BE the friend to share, enthuse, and recommend.
