Netflix has let us into their secrets, and our own, showing us exactly what we’ve been bingeing on in the past year of thrilling programmes.

They have also told us just how much Netflix-ing we’ve been doing: with an average of 140 million hours a day being consumed (that’s just over a billion hours per week, if you were thinking of doing the maths). That’s a lot of telly. Maybe too much. Should we feel ashamed, or accomplished? If you’re unsure, ask yourself if you’re the one Netflix member who watched Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl every single day this year and maybe the answer will come to you. Though it is a good film…

So, Netflix has willingly unlocked the gates to our own watching habits and provided us with their top tens for 2017 – have you watched them all? (I’ve starred my personal favourites, in case you were interested)*
