Netflix wants to drag you down into the abyss of your first binge-watch.
The company recently released data on the 10 most popular shows that people binge-watched for the first time, and came up with some pretty predictable titles: Breaking Bad, Orange Is the New Black, The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, Narcos, House of Cards, Prison Break, 13 Reasons Why, Grey’s Anatomy, and American Horror Story. It found that 90 percent of subscribers had engaged in binge-watching within their first year, and it took most people 12 days to start their first binge.
But Netflix also detailed how to find the first show you binge-watched—meaning you finished a season in seven days or less—by going to your Account icon, clicking Account, scrolling down to My Profile, then clicking Viewing activity and scrolling all the way down. This exercise will certainly remind you of your state of mind through the seasons (Netflix focused on people who’ve joined in the last five years) and offer some surprises. (I do not remember watching the whole first season of Hemlock Grove.)
