Back in January, the University of Austin published a study that considered whether binge-watching television led to depression. The online study of 316 people ages 18 to 29, of whom 237 identified as binge-watchers, found a correlation between depression and binge-watching. (In this case, two shows at a time or more constituted binge-watching—which I simply call “catching up.”)
Cue the articles warning about binge-watching leading to depression pretty much everywhere, right? Binge-watching bad. Grrr. Depression bad. Rarrrr. Binge-watching causes depression, so don’t do it. OMG, run!
Can you tell I have an opinion on this?
