Here is the definitive fast food pairing for every great binge-watchable Netflix series.

A 2016 study found that 64 percent of Americans who subscribe to a streaming video service binge-watch content at least once a year. Given that the largest streaming video distributors in the U.S. tend to release new episodes of popular TV shows in bulk, that phenomenon makes a lot of sense. Once you become invested in a show, it’s only natural that you want to find out what happens next as soon as possible. And when Netflix or another streaming giant gives you the opportunity consume the narrative arc of a full season in one go, all the better.

Though the rise of binge-watching has made it easier to watch great shows, it’s also given rise to a slew of new dilemmas. How many episodes of a Netflix show should you watch on a work night? Can you justify watching ahead on a show that you started watching together with your significant other? And what kind of fast food should you eat when binging of one of your favorite shows? While the resolution to those first two of those questions will vary by individual, the third has a pretty definitive answer.

In fact, House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Master of None and other popular Netflix series all have specific and inarguable fast food pairings. It should be noted that all 20 of these pairings both provide fitting culinary accompaniments for each show and enhance the viewing experience.
