I was thinking about this the other day in the context of trying to understand why so many different shows are so popular on Netflix and elsewhere that are good but not great.

I’m convinced a large reason why they are so well watched is that they are a background for people while they browse their device on the couch. Since these shows stretch across 12+ episodes and run multiple seasons they generally move pretty slow. As a result, you don’t really have to pay very close attention to them (at least for the majority of shows)…so it’s perfect background as you use your phone or wind down on your device at night.
