Nothing beats the simplicity of lounging on the sofa with your feet up watching a movie or series.

However, the idea of choosing what to watch is not as simple.

I’m sure most of us have sat with food in front of us getting cold whilst we try and pick something to watch.

In fact research by NOW TV has revealed that we spend over 100 days of our lives deciding what TV shows and movies to watch. 33% of us believe there is too much choice, and we typically flick though eight TV shows and nine movies before deciding what to watch.

Aston spoke to TV critic Boyd Hilton and psychologist Jo Hemmings.
