So, deskwarming is watch netflix or something else?

Full enforced stay all day deskwarming extreme enforcement has come to the provinces or at least some of them.  This is the longest most boring thing I have ever experienced.  (Schools use to let us leave somewhat early, but for the dicks over the ed office poking and micromanaging now.  Also a couple of keener teachers who read the contract line by line for every little thing now.) 

Anyways, I am wondering if it is worth it to finally get a NEtflix membership and binge watch all day and night.  I gotta do something.

1) If you want to be a total cheapskate, your school's English library might have some books to read and the music room might have basketfulls of old classical music CDs gathering dust, plus exercising.
2) Bring your own in
3) Torrentz? Pirate Bay?
4) Online text games?
5) Wikipedia?
6) Go to the school gym and work on your jumper or dribbling?
7) Get some plants going?
8) A jigsaw puzzle?

Lots to do and plenty of exciting stuff.

I got a Netflix account several months back. It is worth it. First time I have watched TV in almost 20 years.

There are two types of men:
1) Men like my father, who built a plane in his garage
2) Men who bitch and moan about how it can't be done.

Yeah Netflix has a month free trial membership. The streaming free sites are a bit of a gamble with pornography popups.

Also it is “watching Netflix”

Personally, I say no. My wife would say yes. Our youngest daughter pays ( on the + 3 people thingy). I download shedloads and watch from other sources. My wife is behind the TV 8 ball, so she loves watching 5-9 seasons in a row  of things that I have already watched.  As for movies, I generally wait so we can watch new releases together. I'm not a great movie fan unless it's something special.

Edit: This is Korean Netflex. I have no idea about other places.

You forgot about those like you that talk about what can be done, but then do nothing.

I like Netflix for watching and background noise. It's 100% worth it to me. Share a plan with friends and it's cheaper. Also, there a few cool add-ons for language learning that I use for learning Korean. However, some are not free anymore.  :C

You'll have to ask Captain Martino about more details.  It was one of his suggestions a few weeks back in regards to things people could do in Korea instead of complaining about having nothing to do.  When I commented that many of these were just ideas off the type of his head but in reality were ridiculous, he chastised me for having a no-can-do attitude.  He also focused on why I highlighted building a boat as a stupid idea, instead of explaining why HE had suggested building a boat as a good idea.  The old Martino goal posts shift.

One thing I found out about Netflix (maybe this is only applicable with a Smart TV) is that it has different shows in different countries.

I have my Smart TV set to Australia. In the settings you can tune it in to any country. A friend in Canada told me about a great show, Bosch, that I looked for and didn't have. Vice versa as well. So I went into settings and tuned the TV to Canada and there it was, plus a ton of other stuff I didn't normally see.

Netflix is worth it. If only it had live NHL.

Anyone know how to watch the latest season of Locked Up Abroad? There’s an English teaching episode. (Another one.) The other episodes look super interesting, too.

All those streaming sites are different depending on where you are.  I have Bosch on Amazon Prime video.  I read most of the books and I liked the show.  I'm surprised it's on Netflix at all as it's an Amazon original.  But, I read about plenty of shows on Netflix and then when I search for them they're not available here.  It depends on where they've made licensing agreements .  I can't get Sunny in Philadelphia here but I think it's on the UK Netflix.  Same with The Office.  Before it moved to NBC's Peacock streaming site it was available on Netflix in the U.S. but not in Korea.  That's why people go the VPN route.
