24 Memes That Live In Our Head Rent-Free After Binge-Watching Obsession On Netflix

What. Is. Going. On?

Since it debuted on Netflix last week, it didnโ€™t take long for Obsession to quickly become one of the most watched shows on the streaming giant around the world.

Word of mouth (especially about *that* hotel pillow scene) and a marketing campaign that had more than a whiff of Fifty Shades about it has had millions of us tuning in.

But the four-part drama, which tells the story of a surgeon who embarks upon a sex-fuelled affair with his sonโ€™s girlfriend, as the pair grow increasingly infatuated with one another, has left many viewers with more questions than answers.

After streaming the whole series, weโ€™re still left with an overwhelming sense of โ€œwhat have I just watchedโ€? And weโ€™re not the only ones...

(Warning: spoilers ahead)...

From the get-go, people were puzzled/stressed/alarmed/speechless but couldnโ€™t. stop. watching.

Thank god I checked Twitter before watching more than 10 minutes of #ObsessionNetflix because...*spoilers* this guy destroyed his life by having an affair w/ his son's fiancรฉe & was the cause of his son's death. Then he's all like, "Still, I wouldn't change it." GET. THERAPY. pic.twitter.com/Ydj0FqNrCF

And Annaโ€™s reaction to her dead fiancรฉ was so stone cold it was borderline iconic

Anna walking by a naked William, and cracked skull Jay on the steps with no acknowledgement was so unhinged I had to bust out laughing. #ObsessionNetflix

But never mind the plot, what about Annaโ€™s barnet?

Annaโ€™s haircut is the only part of this show worth obsessing over. Itโ€™s so distractingly bad #ObsessionNetflix pic.twitter.com/nEVJt0h9Sw
