With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, many of us often think back to ‘our first time’ and this February Netflix wants to help you to remember your first time. No, not Netflix and chill. We’re talking about your first time bingeing. It only takes 12 days to be exact (roughly…date number three?!) for the majority of Netflix members to start their first binge.
Whether it’s in the bedroom, the living room or even in public, Netflix can reveal that Irish members prefer to binge with the baddies for their first time. The top first binges include series scoundrels such as: Walter White (Breaking Bad), the ladies of Litchfield Prison (Orange is the New Black), The Underwoods (House of Cards), Pablo Escobar in Narcos, the dastardly Demogorgon (Stranger Things) and Thomas Selby (Peaky Blinders).
Although the top spots go to Netflix’s nail-biting bad guys and girls, it seems that the Irish still crave a bit of craic and like to binge on humorous shows like ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ making it into the top 20 list of “First Binges”. Whether you’re drawn to a ‘bad boy’ or ’’The Gang’ in Paddy’s Pub, more and more members from around the world (past or current) are bingeing at least one show in their Netflix lifetime.
Netflix members are also falling for shows that leave them hanging including American Horror Story, The Killing and Homeland and shows that aren’t afraid to go there, like 13 Reasons Why and Making a Murderer which are also in the top 20.
Among the current Irish members who have joined Netflix since October 2012, over 90% of them have already experienced their first binge. With younger members not wanting to beat around the bush, it is now taking subscribers a shorter amount of time to finish *cough* their first binge!
