It's about that time of year again, when all those shows you've been watching since the fall are coming to an end and the dreaded lull of nothing as you wait for the next season is about to begin.

1. Re-watching Binge
Often times when watching a show week to week or sometimes every couple of weeks, it's easy to forget different plot points that aren't brought up in the 'Previously On' segment.

Binge watching, or just re-watching an episode a night, really helps to put everything back into perspective. Now that you know the ending, you pick up on more bits of foreshadowing sprinkled throughout the season.


Spring Shows are Worth Watching
Spring Shows are those shows that have short seasons, possibly 10 episodes at most, and start sometime in April.

A good one to start on is the ever famous "Game of Thrones" or a personal favorite, "Orphan Black."

3. Follow, Reblog, and Tweet
When the season ends it's always fun to search on social media and see what kind of theories people are making about next season.

Even put your own ideas up there.

Thirsty for more? Any show is going to using social media to throw hints and tidbits about the show to the audience. It's a great way to stay connected during the off period and build excitement for the new season.

4. Fan Fiction
Just try it.

Especially if you're not happy with an outcome or choice the writers made for the show.

There is probably someone else with that same unhappiness and have written a piece of fanfiction that explains that choice away. It's all about finding the right piece.

5. Play Catch Up
Life gets busy and sometimes you have to choose between which shows you're going to follow and which you're going to drop.

Or those pesky shows that air at the same time as two of your other shows. Now, is the time to start

6. Start That Show
You know the one, that show you've been meaning to start but you just can't seem to find the time.

Well, now you've got it. Although, starting a new show will probably just add to your line-up next fall.
