Ways Wives Can Use The Power of Persuasion to Get Husbands To Binge Watch Their Netflix Shows is a sponsored post
This is me EVERY SINGLE TIME a new Netflix series arrives…
“Honey, Please you have to watch Ozark with me??”
The husband: “I don't like to watch shows during the day and I have my own usual shows at night until I get tired.”
“But honey it's a Saturday afternoon- the kids aren't home and we can easily binge watch the entire season if we start today! “
The husband: ” The last time you got me involved in a netflix show I become obsessed I can't allow that to happen again”
“Oh c'mon YOU LOVED Making A Murderer. I did you a favor persuading you to binge watch with me. Just try Ozark today!”
The husband: ” Sorry afternoons are reserved for sports. But if you catch me at 7 pm I might have time to squeeze you in then.”
“So what are the best ways for a wife to persuade her husband to watch a Netflix show with her?”
The husband: ” Tell your husband it's the show that EVERYBODY is watching, men like to be current especially at cocktail parties so they can appear hip.”
“Anything else a wife like me can say to persuade her spouse to watch a Netflix show with her?”
The husband: “It helps if the show has Star power- or at least someone I've heard of.”
“So does that mean Jason Bateman works?”
The husband: “Yes. He works.”
“Any other powers of persuasion us wives should keep in our back pocket?”
The husband : Just don't ask us to binge a chick flick or chick show. No wives fighting over where to have a party please”
The truth is when you discover a new favorite show or movie on Netflix the last thing you want to do is watch it alone. With a home full of potential binge-mates, the perfect couch partner is just one persuasive conversation away from joining you. Despite the excuses they might bring to the table—“Sci-Fi isn’t my thing,” “Documentaries bore me,”—no one beats mom and dad when it comes to the power of (entertainment) persuasion.
No matter who you are trying to convince to watch with you, check out this set of fool-proof rationale below that is sure to convince even the most stubborn watchers.

And if you’re ready to binge through every episode of The Defenders but your bingeing buddy thinks “superhero TV just isn’t for me,” Netflix data science can help. Through their robust algorithm and recommendation-based system, Netflix is smashing preconceived notions of entire genres and expanding people’s entertainment horizons. In fact, one in eight Marvel Universe viewers were new to comic book based content before discovering their first heroic binge on Netflix.
In a recent story in Wired, Vice President of Product at Netflix Todd Yellin admits to tricking his wife into watching Jessica Jones. A self-proclaimed anti-comic book fan, “Yellin did what Netflix often does to woo users: He played to her interests by mentioning the strong female lead and rave reviews.” Jessica Jones brings sharp humor with a bite to the table, and shows like Master of None and Orange is the New Black can be gateways into this world. And getting over a genre bias doesn’t only apply to the Marvel Universe, one in five Stranger Things fans were new to horror and one in seven Black Mirror viewers were new to sci fi before getting sucked into the dark side of technology.
The options are endless and so are the gateway shows to your next binge obsession, so let me know what you uncover and how do you persuade your significant other, or even your kids to watch something new on Netflix?
