Which shows on Netflix are easiest to binge-watch? Now we know.
Although Netflix is often reticent to disclose viewership data, the company crunched some numbers on the binge-watching habits of its subscribers, and the streaming service found that certain genres are binged on more quickly than others.
Episodes of "high-energy narratives" like "Sense8" or BBC America's "Orphan Black" were more likely to be watched in rapid succession, Netflix reported Wednesday. Interestingly, Netflix said that "complex narratives" like the company's first original series, "House of Cards," are more likely to be "indulged at an unhurried pace."
With its results, Netflix created what it calls a "binge scale," which ranks shows along a continuum between likelihood to be "savored" versus "devoured."
