Netflix, let us count the ways we love thee. There was House of Cards and Orange Is The New Black in 2013, then Narcos and Making A Murderer in 2015, and this year, you had us hooked on 13 Reasons Why and Riverdale.
But enough of the Netflix history (Flixtory?), if you want to know what your Netflix preferences say about you, scroll down…
Cheesy romcoms 💋
Top contenders: The Rebound, Never Been Kissed, The Sweetest Thing
It goes without saying that you’re a hopeless romantic. Your cringe reflex is enviably low and you do not shy away from talking about your feelings. You’re all about ‘opening up’ and ‘sharing the love’ – it’s probably advised that people carry a bucket when spending time with you. By default, you love Hugh Grant, Jude Law and Gerard Butler. You are 100% Team Jen and described Montana from this year’s Love Island as your ‘spirit animal’. Either that, or you’re disgustingly hungover and your brain can’t cope with anything else.
Kids’ cartoons 👾
Top contenders: Chicken Run, Shark Tale, Shrek
You know how to party, my friend. After a long, stressful day, you’re on the bus home next to a guy who smells like he hasn’t showered in three days, and all you can think is: ‘I can’t wait to get home, put on my Aristocats pyjamas, pour a glass bottle of Savvy B, and watch a film made for children.’ You may have a bit of growing up to do, but GAF? You’ve got all the time in the world to act like a boring adult. Why start now?
The series no one will shut up about 😴
Top contenders: 13 Reasons Why, The Keepers, Stranger Things
You get serious FOMO. You’re the person that walked into the office the day after Making A Murderer aired, when all anyone could talk about was Steven Avery, and cancelled any post-work plans to catch up while researching the history of the US criminal justice system. 80% of your TV is watched purely so that you can be part of the conversation. You care way too much what other people think of you. Learn to be a little more Kanye.
Super scary horror films & thrillers 💀
Top contenders: It Follows, The Babadook, The Amityville Horror
A serious adrenaline junkie, you’ll be found on any given night on the sofa, lights off, pillow primed and ready to cover your eyes in case it all gets too much. You like being scared, and probably have a dark side. But because of that, you’re very knowledgeable about what to do (and what not to do) in scary situations. You’d never ‘split up’ in a ‘lost in the woods’ scenario, you’d wear sensible shoes to run away from monsters, and you know exactly what to do in a zombie apocalypse (‘Head to the coast?’ You’re havin’ a laugh!) You’re pretty useful to have around. Also, you probably have facial piercings. And a Led Zeppelin T-shirt.
Seriously intense documentaries 🎥
Top contenders: Blackfish, Amanda Knox, Into The Inferno
You’re principled and aware of what’s going on in the world, there’s no doubt about that. But you sure do have a lot of spare energy to spend on emotionally-gruelling TV. What’s your secret? Do you get eight hours of sleep every night? Do you use a lavender-scented pillow spray? Or are you just a serial double-screener who doesn’t get fully absorbed in emotional shows because you’re actually just watching Insta Stories instead?
