Here’s How to Find Out the First Thing You Ever Binge-Watched on Netflix
Whether you’re new to Netflix or you’ve been a subscriber for years, chances are you’ve done your fair share of binge-watching (or maybe even binge-racing!). Netflix knows this, and they’re encouraging users to reminisce about their first time — their first time binge-watching an entire TV series, that is.
According to new data, Netflix subscribers are likely to start indulging in a marathon streaming session just 12 days into signing up. Most people finish a season within just three days, but binge-watching, per Netflix, is defined as completing at least one season of a show within seven days of starting it.
So, what are people likely to fire up first? The top 10 “first binges” in the US are:
1. Orange Is the New Black
2. Breaking Bad
3. The Walking Dead
4. Stranger Things
5. House of Cards
6. Sons of Anarchy
7. Fuller House
8. American Horror Story
9. Family Guy
10. Grey’s Anatomy
Globally, the titles don’t vary too much, with just the addition of Narcos, Prison Break, and 13 Reasons Why (and minus Family Guy, Sons of Anarchy, and Fuller House).
Even celebrities binge-watch stuff on Netflix (duh). In a new video from the streaming service, Jodie Foster admits to crushing three seasons of Breaking Bad in three days (can’t blame her), Mindhunter‘s Jonathan Groff said he couldn’t stop watching Alias (starring Jennifer Garner), and OITNB‘s Dascha Polanco watched all of Jessica Jones in just one night. Honestly, we feel so seen right now.
So, how do you find out your own first binge-watch? Simply go to your Account Page, click on “Viewing Activity,” and, depending on how long you’ve been a subscriber and how many titles you’ve watched, scroll alllllllllllllll the way down. Mine? Mad Men. It might be time for a rewatch.
