A recent study linking binge-watching with depression has been making some of us uneasy. I got quite antsy, maybe because the story began grabbing headlines just as I started watching Lost.
The six-season TV series about a group of stranded plane-crash survivors is potentially the bingey-est viewing experience ever devised to entertain (and simultaneously torture) human beings. Originally airing on ABC from 2004 to 2010, Lost was known for creating obsessive, unbalanced viewers even before binge-watching was a thing. No wonder I had fears for my mental health.
