Mashable's recent report on binge-watching television confirms that 61% of Netflix users watch at least two or three episodes of a TV show in a row. The majority of people who start watching Breaking Bad will finish the whole series in a day.
"Bingeing was a welcome refuge from their busy lives, and nearly eight in ten people said binge-watching a TV show made it more enjoyable than watching single episodes," reports the site.
However - TV shows also lure us in because of the effect they have on our brains. Research conducted by a psychologist at Princeton University found TV and film has a way of "controlling" the mind which will keep the audience totally engaged.
Apparently it impacts on our will power too. Sometimes one episode of Game of Thrones just isn't enough.
