Netflix have just released their users habits for 2017, including the most binge watched television shows, series that we just couldn’t wait for our significant other to come home before watching and some of our more unusual quirks.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the day that saw the most users on the popular streaming site was Monday 16th October when the nation came to a standstill during Storm Ophelia.
The average Netflix user watched around 60 movies this year which makes it really bizarre that one Irish person managed to watch the Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston movie 'Just Go With It' a whopping 308 times.
To the 53 people who've watched A Christmas Prince every day for the past 18 days: Who hurt you?

The most binge watched show of this year was the Mexican political drama Ingobernable, and Irish audiences tended to marvel at superhero criminal dramas such as Iron Fist and The Defenders.
Comedies faired very well on the Emerald Isle this year with You Me Her, a rom com centred around a polyamorous relationship in Portland hitting the right note with Irish audiences. Big Mouth, a hilarious coming of age animated show dealing with the awkwardness of puberty and hormones also tickled our funny bones.
On a more contentious note, the shows that we just couldn't wait for our significant other to watch with us were Narcos, the gripping story of the cocaine trade in Columbia and the mystery drama 13 Reasons Why.
The series voted best for bringing all the family together was the supernatural nostalgia tinged Stranger Things, which has garnered it's own cultish following among its many viewers.
