Do you ever get that feeling?

Have you ever been watching something on your phone, or other device in public and felt like you weren’t the only one? It seems that 45% of us have noticed someone ‘backseat bingeing’, and some were actually embarrassed about what they were watching. I don’t know about you, but I’m not going to watch anything in public that would make me feel embarrassed. Especially since in a recent survey conducted by SurveyMonkey, it was discovered that 27% of the ‘snoopers’ have actually interrupted the viewer to start a conversation about it! This cracks me up. 

When I travel I like to take something with me for distraction including Netflix downloads. It turns out with 2.4 billion smartphone users globally, I am not alone in this. I have laughed, jumped in surprise and cried over my favourite book so it comes as no surprise that I do this with shows and movies now too. 

I guess you can’t always predict what shows might have scenes that could embarrass you, that are – shall we say, a bit risqué. Or maybe you can. I wouldn’t be comfortable watching a show like Orange is the New Black or Gerald’s Game beside Grandma on the Go Train.

Anyway, riding on public transit is always a good time to catch up and if you want to play it safe there are lots of options. I LOVE Cosmos – a Spacetime Odyssey. This series blows my mind with Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson presenting new revelations about time and space. Check it out. Or my new favourite – the Crown

There are so many choices on Netflix – enough to pick your perfect comfort level for public viewing – and possibly sharing too!
