Where has the year gone? I swear just yesterday we were racing from school pickup to the outdoor spray park and enjoying late night summer-time picnics. Now, somehow it’s late fall and equally dark in the morning as it is in the early evening. The weather is cooler, and much rainier in Vancouver which triggers the switch from marathon baseball games outside to binge watching an entire Netflix TV series from the comfort of my couch.
C’mon, I know I’m not the only one. You sit down with a cozy blanket and snack with the intention of watching just a couple episodes of that new series you’ve been hearing so much about. When before you know it, that next episode countdown timer is bearing down and you promise yourself you’ll watch “just one more”. Then, the series is over and it’s OMG-o’clock and you’re left feeling empty, yet so full, asking your friends on Facebook which series you should watch next.
Surprising I know, but I’m not the only one to do this! Netflix recently conducted a study to find out just what kind of Netflix watchers are out there.
The folks who watch a whole season of a show within 24 hours of its release. Most people only do it once a year, but someone, somewhere in Canada has done it 16 times this year alone! Show off. 13 Reasons why… Riverdale… Ya, apparently I don’t fall under the most category on this one!
O, Canada, sorry we’re busy bingeing!
Canada has the highest % of Binge Racers in the world with 11% of Canadian members having raced. Yep! I’m one of them!
Canada had the highest % of Binge Racers globally for Trailer Park Boys, GLOW, Santa Clarita Diet, Master of None, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Easy to say Canada loves a 30 minute comedy!
So, are you a binge watcher? Do you fall into one of these categories?
