Binge Watching. No comment as to you Aussies and Kiwis.


“Netflix knows the exact episode of a TV show that gets you hooked. A sample:

  • Bloodline — Episode 4
  • Breaking Bad — Episode 2
  • Grace & Frankie — Episode 4
  • House of Cards — Episode 3
  • Mad Men — Episode 6
  • Orange is the New Black — Episode 3
  • Sons of Anarchy — Episode 2
  • Suits — Episode 2
  • The Blacklist — Episode 6
  • The Walking Dead — Episode 2

The episode that Netflix names as the “hooked” episode is the global average, but it found some local variations. “The Dutch, for instance, tend to fall in love with series the fastest, getting hooked one episode ahead of most countries irrespective of the show.” On the other hand, “members in Australia and New Zealand [got] hooked one to two episodes later than the rest of the world on almost every show.”

  3. How many times have I said this before clicking to the next episode. Breaking Bad may have been the most addictive series.

  5. The only series that got me hooked was Lost, but hooked I was. I’ve watched the whole series twice and a thrid viewing is not outside the realm of possibilities.

  12. I’m addicted to American Ninja Warrior though I watch it the old fashioned way–one week at a time. Did you watch the video about the fight scene in Daredevil at the end of the article? It was interesting and this line stuck with me, “violence takes a toll on everyone, even the ones who win”.

  13. The only show I binge-watched was Lost…just to catch up to the madness after I missed the first year. I can see how easy it would be to get “lost” in many of the above series. My daughter doesn’t get cable TV, and seems to do this all the time. It’s the way of that generation. ☺
