Netflix will now let you skip opening credits, and bingeing just got even easier

You know how when you're five seasons deep into a Gilmore Girls Netflix marathon and you've heard the theme song so many times that it's gone from cute to seriously annoying? (Don't pretend you haven't been there.)

Well, Netflix is changing the whole binge-watching game by introducing a new button which lets you skip the opening credits of some shows, according to The Verge.

Twitter users began noticing this week that if you hover over the title sequence for some Netflix originals like House of Cards and Iron Fist, that a "Skip Intro" button pops up.

Right now, the feature only works online — not on the app. And it's not clear whether or not they'll expand the feature beyond Netflix originals and to shows with cold opens — where the show starts before the opening credits are played. But hey, it's a start!
