This Is How Many Episodes It Takes To Become Hooked To These Popular Netflix Shows

In a society where excessive screen time has become the new norm it is no surprise that many of us are avid fans of Netflix and chill. In our office when we debrief about our weekend on a Monday morning over half of the office mentions ‘Netflix’ at least once when they share what they got up to. Sure, we could have been out socialising and ‘having a life’ but binge watching our latest show is much more fun.

We all say that we are addicted or hooked on a show, but how long does it take to become hooked?

 

A recent Netflix study found Aussies and Kiwis take longer to become hooked on a series compared to the global average.  It seems that thrilling mysteries, young love, family drama and criminal behavior are the genres that get us hooked, but never on the pilot episode of the series. This made the study conclude something that all avid Netflix watchers already knew – the all-at-once model is how fans like to watch content.

So how long before people became hooked to the most popular shows?
