Local Couple Watching TV Show On TV, One Episode A Week, Like Fucking Cavemen

IRELAND is playing host to a growing community of couples who consent to watching episodes of TV as they air terrestrially as opposed to just ploughing through them over a single weekend, WWN has learned.

Couples such as Jim Harkin and his girlfriend Helen Burke from Waterford have just completed the third season of Killing Eve in real time; an exhausting feat that saw them agree to be in the same place at the same time each week, to catch it as it aired on the BBC, instead of just waiting until it had all been aired and downloading it; behaviour that errs on the side of weird and pure deviance, most will agree.

In an age where streaming services allow couples to go for hours without talking to each other or engaging with each other in any sort of way, the act of setting aside one hour a week to watch a TV show and leaving the rest of the time free for other unknown behaviours, possibly involving conversations, is something that most people in relationships consider ‘unnatural’.

In a recent study, 95% of couples credit the strength of their relationship to Netflix, with most agreeing that ‘if it wasn’t for starting Billions, we’d have split up long ago’.

A mere 2% expressed interest in dabbling with ‘live TV’, although some agreed that they tune in to The Late Late once a week at the same time, with no notable ill effects to their relationship outside of boredom and a desire to go to bed early.

Speaking exclusively to WWN, Jim and Helen highly recommended the ‘non-streamer’ lifestyle to other couples, and provided us with links to the growing online community of such couples; links that our moral code prevents us from sharing with you now. WWN began as a news publisher that advocates the norms of partners watching four episodes of something every night, and we remain so now.
