Colt smooths things over with Abby. When Maggie drags Beau to The Marriott for a romantic evening, the guys have some fun back at the house.

Cindy Holland, vice president of original content at Netflix, said: "We've always known there is a commonality to great stories.

The internet allows us to share these stories with audiences wherever they may be and what we see from the data is how similar our members watch and respond.

"The hooked findings give us confidence that there is an appetite for original and unique content, which is why we're excited to deliver variety in stories to our members, whether they're political dramas from France or musical dramas from the Bronx."

Netflix is famous for keeping its viewing figures a well-guarded secret, with its CEO Reed Hastings insisting that it "doesn't matter what everyone else loves the most, it matters what you or I love the most".

The real reason though, obviously, is because it is "competitive information that tells HBO what kind of shows to produce".
