Students’ Netflix preferences during the summer ranged from old TV favorites like “Friends” to Netflix originals like “orange is the New Black”.

In a recent survey conducted by the Waldron Street Journal staff, 33 percent of the students watch “Shameless,” while 25 percent enjoy “Friends.”

Some can go days watching their favorite shows to catch up to the current season on television. Other students said that they rewatch older shows just for the enjoyment of reliving part of their childhood.

Netflix usually posts an entire season of a series at once and some students said that they can finish all of the episodes in about three days. Unfortunately, Netflix can take up to a year to provide a new season.

Some students claim they spend a week at the most watching a single series before moving on the the next. Most said that they were able to finish at least five or six shows by the time the new school year started.

Others said that they are able to binge watch a whole season within two weeks, despite having homework and extracurricular school activities.
