There is some interesting data that Netflix has released about when viewers get hooked on a series and at what point they’re likely to go on to watch the entire first season. If I look at the list of shows, for ones that I haven’t completed the first season of, I haven’t reached that “hooked” episode number. What about you?
It may have taken Walter White nearly an entire season to become Heisenberg, and Frank Underwood 13 episodes to become VP (spoiler alert!), but it turns out fans committed to these series long before those plot twists unfolded. Hint: it wasn’t in the pilot episode.
