A MAN has realised his Netflix subscription has been spent entirely on watching old episodes of Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Martin Bishop hoped the streaming service would give him the opportunity to watch something fresh and exciting, but four years in he has only used it to watch episodes of his favourite sci-fi series that he has seen many times before.
Bishop said: “I log into Netflix convinced I’m going to embark on a binge of some fiercely intelligent US series that everyone has raved about, or a dark Scandinavian drama set by a lake.
“But the effort of engaging my brain for three minutes so that I can get into a new show soon sends me running back into the familiar, comforting arms of Kirk, Picard and Sulu.
“I could have saved myself £300 just by buying a couple of Star Trek DVD box sets from a charity shop, but I threw out my DVD player in 2018 so what am I going to do?
“Still, at least Star Trek has a plot. If I’d wasted several hundred quid on mindless shite like Car Masters: Rust to Riches, I’d really be worried about myself.”
