Responsibly rewarding study time with great TV

If you haven’t got Netflix then now is the time to get it. If you are an avid TV watcher like me and you love to de-stress from revision, then I recommend Breaking Bad.

I won’t ruin it for you too much, but it’s utterly great, plus there are 5 seasons that you can really sink your teeth into.

I could get a little obsessive and spend the entire day in my pyjamas watching it; however, I have turned it into a treat.


A long day at the library means that I can watch one episode before I go to sleep and that is my form of moderation. If you base your study strategy on rewarding a good day’s work with an episode of your favourite TV pick it is a great way to unwind at the end of a busy day.

As students we are required to be constantly working around our modules, putting a lot more work into study than we perhaps actually do. When it comes to deadline season, make sure you are strict on yourself and treat your day-to-day life as working 9-5. This way you will get things done and not leave it all to the last minute.

If you are interested in the story of breaking bad, then here is a quick synopsis of the story, so you can make up your own mind:


Let me introduce you to Walter White (that guy that played Malcolm in the Middle’s Dad). He has a wife, Skylar, a disabled son, Walter Jr. and a baby on-the-way. He is a Chemistry Teacher and works part time for a car wash and valet service.


His life is pretty normal aside from the money issues, however, Walter soon discovers he has cancer.

As it is set in America and they don’t have a NHS system, Walter’s treatment is going to cost a hell of a lot of money.

So what does he do?

I have to tell you because otherwise it may seem a bit too boring.

He uses his skills to make Drugs with an ex-student in secret and soon becomes a man not to be messed with.

You don’t have to get Netflix to watch it, pick up an ultra cheap copy from eBay. I guarantee you will be hooked, and the more you want to watch, the more study you will need to do- if you stick by my one-a-day rule.
