Scroll below to see the full UK and global lists

Netflix has unveiled a list of the first shows that viewers ever binge-watched on the streaming service, with Breaking Bad coming out on top.

The streaming service classes “binge-watching” as users completing an entire season of a show within seven days.

Netflix recently revealed the UK’s most binge-raced shows of 2017, now sharing the shows that users binge-watched first.


Both globally and in the UK, Breaking Bad tops the list, with Orange Is The New Black following closely.

The UK list, however, includes notable British shows not featured in the global list, like The Inbetweeners and Peaky Blinders.

It’s also notable how both the UK and global first-binged lists predominantly feature Netflix original shows.
