Zamparse – My Spanish Word Of The Day 7/8/2016

¡Buenos Días!

Today I learned the word zamparse which means to wolf down, gobble up, scarf down, gulp down.

I discovered zamparse while reading an article at formulatv  that describes how people binge watch their favorite television programs on Netflix.   It is called, Para saborear o devorar: Netflix desvela qué nos gusta hacer maratones.  Some people saborear (savor) their tv series in daily sessions of less than two hours, while others devorar (devour) their programs by watching them more than 2 hours a day.

Netflix studied the television program viewing habits of it’s viewers in 190 countries from October, 2015 until May, 2016.  It created a binge scale with saborear at one end and devorar at the other end. Programs such as The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt are on the saborear end of the scale; programs such as Sense 8, are on the devorar end.

My favorite Netflix binge watch is Velvet.  Season 3 became available in June of this year and I wolfed down 16 episodes in less than a week.  The show stars Paula Echevarría and Miguel Ángel Silvestre.  I assume that Velvet is on the saborear end of the scale for most people.  Interestingly, Miguel Ángel Silvestre also stars in the Netflix original series Sense 8, which is on the devorar end of the scale.

¡Me zampé Velvet Series  3 en menos de una semana!

¡Feliz fin de semana, amigos!
