It’s hard to remember a time where people didn’t use Netflix on a regular basis. Even though it’s easy to name a bunch of shows and movies that you’ve watched through the site, it’s hard to pinpoint the exact moment Netflix became a thing.
For Valentine’s Day, Netflix released some of their data, featuring their most binged shows by first time users including Family Guy, Orange Is The New Black, Breaking Bad, and Stranger Things.
This release of information no doubt gave everyone a case of the simpler times, before the company took over the world and made shows that were actually good.
Discovering your first Netflix love is pretty simple. First, log on to Netflix. Head over to your account button and click on Account, where you’ll be taken to a section that has a few queues. Click on My Profile, and then Viewing Activity, which will show you your entire viewing history. You may need to sit down for this.
By scrolling, and scrolling, and scrolling, you’ll finally land at the bottom of the page, where you’ll see the first movie or show you ever watched on your Netflix account. You might be surprised by something really weird and obscure. The Netflix catalog wasn’t as good back then.
