Netflix Unveils Top ‘Binge Raced’ Shows

As part of a press release issued today by Netflix, it seems the streaming giant is trying to introduce a new term to the lexicon – ‘Binge Racing’.

‘Binge Racing’ is effectively high-speed ‘Binge Watching’ and refers to those who consume the entire season of a series within a 24 hour window. As ‘binge watching’ has moved from the niche to almost the new norm, it comes as little surprise that something like ‘Binge Racing’ is also catching on.

According to the streaming service, 8.4 million of its 109 million subscribers are into that habit and today have listed the top twenty series that get whole seasons consumed in the span of a single day on their service.

Netflix is quick to emphasize this doesn’t mean they’re necessarily the most popular series on their service, merely the ones that are most quickly consumed by a segment of their audience. They are:

1. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
2. Fuller House
3. The Ranch
4. Marvel’s The Defenders
5. The Seven Deadly Sins
6. Trailer Park Boys
7. Santa Clarita Diet
8. F is for Family
9. Orange is the New Black
10. Stranger Things
11. Friends from College
12. Grace and Frankie
13. Wet Hot American Summer
14. Atypical
15. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
16. House of Cards
17. Master of None
18. Luther
19. GLOW
20. Arrested Development

The company also listed the top binge racing countries with Canada coming first ahead of the United States, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Germany, Mexico, Australia, Sweden and Brazil. Netflix is expected to spend around $8 billion on original programming next year.
