Netflix and Chill?! Try Netflix and chilled corpse. So says a writer for the UK Guardian who calls the streaming service "audio-visual diazepam."

Arwa Mahdawi believes people are entertaining themselves to death by turning binge watching "into an accepted part of modern culture."


Netflix's CEO, Reed Hastings, once joked saying its biggest competitor is sleep and Mahdawi agrees, pointing out the service is "engineered to be addictive."

Mahdawi feels it won't be long before the World Health Organization, who recently classified video game addiction as a real mental health issue, adds "Netflix disorder" to their International Classification of Diseases.
