I’ve never really understood the arguments that people make against subtitles. It’s like having access to the script while it unfolds. It’s great, and you miss nothing. It immerses you even more into the shows that you like. If you don’t like subtitles, I’m here to convince you to put them on. Here’s why you should.
Sometimes You Just Miss Some Things
Accents, accents, so many accents. Netflix has shows from all over the world, and even the ones that are in English can come with some pretty thick accents. I literally don’t know how you can follow some of those shows without subtitles. And the thing with the international titles is that if you watch them in their original language, with subtitles, they are that much better.
You Can Make Memes Out Of Them
This has quickly become one of my favorite hobbies. When your subtitles are on, you can take screenshots of moments in some of your shows and make memes out of them. The fun is in fitting random moments to absurd contexts that somehow still click. Subtitles make that happen.
