How do you watch Netflix? Do you shamelessly watch an entire season of a show in a month? A week? One sitting? Don't worry. You're not alone.
Netflix has created a new Binge Scale and it shows that how much you binge depends on what the show is. In other words, some shows are more addictive than others. Some shows we savor and some shows we devour.
Overall, the global average is five days to finish the first season of any show, with viewers watching two hours and 10 minutes of a show per session. Shows are then put into two categories to make the Binge Scale. Shows viewed more than two hours per day are in the "Devour" category, while those viewed less than two hours per day are in the "Savor" category.
Those in the Devour category tend to be more emotionally demanding and sometimes "assault your senses," which translates into longer viewing patterns. Others in the Devour category "tickle our fancy" which makes it easy to keep the episodes coming.
The Savor category meanwhile, tends to be more thought-provoking and open to interpretation. These viewers tend to pay more attention to details and these shows also tend to have more layers to the plotlines.
