Netflix Takes a Look Back at 2017 - A Year In Bingeing!

Netflix Takes a Look Back at 2017 - A Year In Bingeing!

Netflix takes a look back at the shows we watched (and watched again) that defined our year. What a difference a year makes. We learned how to launder money (Ozark) and profile serial killers (MINDHUNTER). That life is better with wrestling (GLOW) and just as crazy without Pablo (Narcos). And once again, that Eleven is not to be messed with (Stranger Things). The only thing we didn't learn... who drew the dicks (American Vandal).

2017 brought a lot of learning and also, A LOT of watching. Netflix members around the world watched more than 140 million hours per day (that's a little more one billion hours per week in case you were wondering). The most popular of which fell on Sunday, January 1 - one day in and we already needed a comfort binge.

Even Antarctica got in on the watching action, where someone (a penguin) binged through Shameless (talk about Netflix and chill). Not to be outdone, Mexico takes the top spot for having the most members to watch Netflix every-single-day (#goals).

The one we're still scratching our heads about, the person who watched Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl 365 days in a row (streamin' me timbers?). An impressive feat, especially as the average member watched around 60 movies on Netflix this year.

There's much to say about what we watched, but how we watched was also intriguing. Though bingeing was standard in 2017, not all series were enjoyed in the same way - there were those we devoured, those we savored, those we cheated on, and those that brought us together...

The Shows We Devoured in 2017

We took an escape from reality in 2017 by devouring (watching more than two hours per day) sci-fi series likes of 3%, Travelers and The OA. The question of 'whodunit' (and didn't do it) in The Keepers and The Confession Tapes also had us watching with might.

The Shows We Savored in 2017
We needed a laugh this year and found that solace by savoring (watching less than two hours per day) shows like Atypical, GLOW, Dear White People and Big Mouth. We also took care to enjoy the splendor of The Crown (it is a visual feast fit for a queen after all).

The Shows That Brought Us Together in 2017

Whether for the adventure, Chief Hopper or bromance (#DadSteve), Netflix members ranked Stranger Things as the top show to watch together as a family. Nostalgia also scored top points for family watching via Star Trek: Discovery, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life and Fuller House.
