After a breakup there’s nothing more therapeutic than a three day HBO binge of that show you never got to watch while you were out having a life and dating. So he thought Girls was lame nepotism, Game of Thrones was for nerds, and Sex and The City was for insecure women and naive teenage girls… but now you can submerse yourself in a world much more interesting than your own and analyze the shit out of him while doing it. So turn off the lights, grab a tub of nuts, a camelback of Chardonnay and thank the break-up gods he gave you his parents’ HBO GO password before he left.
