59% of mothers and daughters thought that the post-show discussion was the best part of the TV-watching experience, and 55% thought that comedy was the best genre for connecting.
2. Binge watching can actually make you smarter
...Depending on what you're watching.
A study published last year in Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts showed that watching high-quality TV dramas like Mad Men or The West Wing actually increases emotional intelligence and makes us more empathetic.
We wonder if the same can be said for Keeping Up With The Kardashians?
3. It can help you bond in a relationship
Another study conducted by Netflix shows that many couples in Australia have bonded specifically over watching TV together. 34% of couples said they bond with their significant other over the shows they watch together, and 68% found their new favourite movie through their partner's recommendation. Plus, almost half of respondents used TV as their time to hang out with each other!
Turns out a literal 'Netflix n' chill' actually has a pretty beneficial purpose!
Sooo...TV this weekend anyone?
