The average Netflix watcher will generally finish an entire series of a show in one week, the subscription video on demand giant said. But not all shows are binge-watch worthy.
Tracking consumer behaviour, Netflix has revealed its thriller, horror and sci-fi shows are the genres people just can’t turn off.
Shows like Breaking Bad, Sons of Anarchy, The Walking Dead and American Horror Story usually have people sitting there for two or more hours watching episode after episode.
On the flip side, irreverent comedies, and political and historical dramas are the shows consumers tend to savour and watching every now and then.
In the irreverent comedy section, shows include Arrested Development, Summer Heights High and Bo Jack Horseman.
And in political and historical dramas it included shows like House of Cards, Mad Men and Peaky Blinders.
“As The Binge Scale indicates, the viewing experience of a series can range from the emotional to the thought-provoking,” said Cindy Holland, vice president of original content at Netflix.
“Netflix helps you to find a series to binge no matter your mood or occasion, and the freedom to watch that series at your own pace – whether that’s to appreciate the drama of Bloodline or power through Orange is the New Black.”
