Netflix reveals the shows we're desperate to watch as quickly as possible!
Marvel’s The Defenders is the biggest “binge racer” show – where a viewer speeds through an entire season within 24 hours of a show’s launch – on Netflix.
It seems fans are desperate to watch all eight episodes of the US show as quickly as possible as Marvel heroes Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) team up to take on global super villains The Hand.
With on-demand services that allow you to also watch on the go, this binge racing behaviour has grown substantially in the last few years, with 8.4 million members having binge raced during their Netflix lifetime alone. Luther, House of Cards and Stranger Things all make the list – although there is no sign of Netflix hit The Crown.
