Do you remember your first time… bingeing on Netflix?

WARNING: This Netflix Press Release Is for Mature Audiences Only

Most people wait until the third date, but globally it only takes two weeks (well, 12 days to be exact) for the majority of Netflix members to go all the way. No, not Netflix and chill. We’re talking about your first time bingeing on Netflix.

This Valentine’s Day, Netflix wants to help you remember your first time. Ask any of the 90% of members who have done it, and they'll be able to tell you who it was with (probably Walter White), where they were (on a bus, if you’re MINDHUNTER’s Jonathan Groff) and how long it lasted (an impressive 3 days around the world, in most cases).

As for the shows that people fall in love with first, bad boys (and girls) came out on top. Breaking Bad is the most popular show that people binged first, with Orange Is the New Black, Narcos, House of Cards and Prison Break not far behind.

We’re also falling for shows that leave us hanging, like The Walking Dead, Stranger Things and American Horror Story. While shows that aren’t afraid to push boundaries, like 13 Reasons Why and Grey’s Anatomy, round out the Top 10.
