Why do people feel a desire to tell others about things that they have done? In particular, marathoning (or "binge watching)" tv shows?

Last semester, an acquaintance of mine sitting next to me in class pulled out his laptop and
>dude, i made a mistake
>he clicks open his netflix tab
>i signed up for netflix
>he turns his head away from the screen and flashes me a grin
>he turns back and continues
>i watched the entire season of X, 10 episodes of Y at once, and I...
>he goes on and on
>"ok"

Why did he feel the urge to tell me this? This isn't an isolated case, either-in fact quite the opposite. I hear "binge-watching" on campus ALL THE TIME.

Why can't you just watch something and just watch it? Where does the desire to tell people about these things matter? Is binge watching an accomplishment? How is staring at a screen for 6 hours an accomplishment?

Does telling someone else confirm in your mind that it really happened?

What is going on here? If you really liked the show you'd just watch it and then ravenously proceed to the next show and so on.

Is everyone playing a game of "one-upmanship" in the form of watching television and movies now?

Have you read one of those magazines catered to middle-aged women? This is standard fare for that shit.

>"Cool."
>conversation ends
>she never even talked to this guy before or after

She was really weird. And no, she wasn't trying to be funny or LOLSORANDUM, she's really just borderline retarded.

Probably because people like to talk about the shows they watch. He probably told you that to see if you watched the same thing, and if so, it would be the start of a conversation centered around that show.

Maybe he was trying to start a conversation about TV shows you autistic faggot.

telling someone about something you've done is a great way to discover that you have common interests with them and potentially begin an interesting conversation or friendship.
