Please Take My TV Survey!

Do you watch TV shows?

Are you above the age of 18?

Do you have three minutes to spare for a student who’s just trying to pass a class?

Then please take my survey!

I’m in a Research Methods class at university and we all have to do our own research project. And of course mine is on my favourite subject: television!

Like I said, my survey only takes a few minutes, and it’d benefit me greatly! All I ask is that you answer honestly and that you’re above the age of 18 (school rules, sorry!). All your answers are anonymous, so don’t worry about anything.

I know I have readers of all ages, so I should have a wide range of answers, which is exactly what I need for my project!

So please, click this link below, take my survey, and, if you’re feeling especially gracious, please share with friends! The more responses I get means I’ll have less BS-ing to do in my report! 😀

To show my gratitude, here’s some pictures of celebrities holding puppies, as last Wednesday (the 23rd) was National Puppy Day. You can’t get this kind of content anywhere else! Enjoy, and thank you!

That’s all for now!
***Edit as of May 2nd***
My class is over, final marks are in and therefore, my survey is done. So to anyone just reading this, while I thank you for your interesting in helping, your services are no longer needed!

  1. Reblogged this on LadiesWhoLunchReviews,etc and commented:
    Please help my friend out with her university class by taking her quick survey. She was an absolute love and helped me with all sorts of blogging and computer questions when I first started my blog last fall so I’d like to return the favor and get her lots of help now! Thanks!!

    • Thank you!
      And I’m guaranteed to pass (I’m a good student!) but I’m aiming for a good mark on this report, as the midterm was…less than satisfactory…. 🙂

      • Oh dear…the midterm thing doesn’t sound good. At least your blog has a sweet tagline. You should get extra credit for that.

        Just tell your teacher that some guy on the internet who pretends to be a jaguar thinks you should get a good mark on your report because he likes your blog. I’m sure he or she will understand 😀

    • Thanks! I think there are a few people in my class doing Facebook projects. We got to pick any topic related to communications/media so social media is a popular one!

  2. I’m glad you got the responses you needed!

    I completed the survey but didn’t follow out the “any additional thoughts” section at the time. I’d like to do that now, if it isn’t too late for your project:

    While I enjoy not having to think too hard about what I want to watch at the end of the night (“Well, it’s been a long day of job hunting. Four episodes of ‘Once Upon a Time’ and then I’ll go to bed”), the thing I don’t like about it is that people seem to be consuming more yet remembering it less.

    When I had to wait a week in between each episode of “Lost,” I discussed theories with friends, talked about favorite characters and favorite lines, etc. Then I met some people who hadn’t seen “Lost,” and I gave them the first two seasons on DVD to binge-watch. When I got the discs back, they said they loved the show, but when I asked about favorite or least favorite characters, or favorite or least favorite episodes, they had no idea. Everything just kind of blurred together for them.

    Similarly, some time after binge-watching the modern “Battlestar Galactica,” I went back to rate the episodes on IMDB, and discovered that, even though I knew I had seen every single episode via Netflix, I couldn’t identify most of them through their descriptions. Since I obsess over details of TV shows, I never thought this would happen to me. But the same thing happened to me that happened to my friends: The show had just become a big blur.

    Maybe it doesn’t matter that much, but for me, a key part of the fun of TV watching is the savoring of each episode, the discussion of what worked and what didn’t work, and the excitement raised to see how the cliffhanger was going to be resolved. That aspect of TV watching seems to be vanishing in the stream-every-episode-at-once era.

    Anyway, I hope this gives you useful feedback! 🙂

    • The additional thoughts won’t be a big part of my report, so don’t worry about it!
      But I totally agree with you on the blurring of binged episodes. I personally don’t binge too often as I’m good at keeping up live, but when I do binge, I definitely find a blur in my memory. When I watched Jessica Jones and season 2 of Daredevil, I did them in a day and when talking to people about it even later in the day, I had trouble remembering bits, which is sad, but realistic considering how much of the show I consumed in such a little time. But I still watched it and can still discuss it, so it’s okay, and I think that’s a mentality that most people have, which is fine.
      I too like discussing plots/whatnot between episodes. Especially when there’s a really big thing to figure out, I spend a lot of time thinking as I wait for the next episode.
      I guess it’s a matter of what people have time and tolerance for, and that’s why seeing the vast differences in my survey results is so neat!

  3. Done 🙂 🙂 such a cool research project. And I love that your prof let you pick the topic. For my research methods class, we all had to do the same one: parking. I ended up spending a good 5 hours naturalistically observing people in mall parking lots…got security called on me twice for “loitering”. Good luck in your class 🙂 🙂
