Before you came to uni you probably imagined yourself attending some lectures, getting horrendously drunk, and making hundreds of bff4lyfes – or whatever they’re called these days.

What you probably didn’t expect was that you’d spend hours, days, even weeks, slouched in front of your computer in your darkened room watching, no, not porn – well probably that too – but TV shows (thank god for Putlocker!)

Therefore, we thought we’d ask some of you what exactly you spend your time watching…
