The holiday season is upon us which means once Christmas time has come and gone, we will be on winter holidays from the everyday. The kids will be off from school for a couple of weeks which means I also slow things down and use my time to relax and regroup for the coming New Year.

I have developed a habit when it comes to watching my favourite shows and movies. I tend to binge watch a whole new season in just a few sittings, leaving myself with an empty feeling and searching to find out when the next season is rumored to becoming back to my favourite streaming service, Netflix. 

While I'm taking a little break for the next round of episodes from my favourite shows to stream, I find myself searching for movies of similar taste or movies with actors from the show I just finished, to see what else they have done and keep myself entertained until the next run. 

Apparently, I am not the only one who does this. Netflix released data explaining a new binge routine with 65% of users taking about a three day break before starting up a new show and during that break over half (61%) watch a movie to fill the gap. That's more than 30 million people who agree, some things just go better together! 

Canadians have some interesting pairings when it comes to movies that most often follow series among Netflix users. Some popular choices are:

- Quick paced, coffee loving Gilmore Girls fans keep pop culture references fresh with movies like Clueless and Mean Girls. If you have not binged through Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life yet, get to it! The last four words will have you wanting more! 
- When it comes to relationship dramas like Grey's Anatomy, movies like Sleeping with Other People and Couples Retreat are popular choices. 

-After a round of Marvel's Jessica Jones, fans look for other strong leading ladies in movies like The Hunger Games and V for Vendetta.
- People enjoy continuing the silliness of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt with  movies like 13 Going On 30 and The Princess Bride.

Changing to movies between series also gives people a bit of a change from watching one genre to another. If you're watching something a bit scarier like The Walking Dead which CAN get your heart pumping, you can calm yourself down with a movie like The Martian or The Do-Over.

December is a great month to get comfy and stay in for some serious Netflixing.

Do you find yourself looking for movies between binge watching series?
