Countless binge-watchers were sent into a fit of rage when Netflix was down for nearly three hours on Saturday.

It happened at about 2 p.m., according to CNN, and the timing was pretty bad.

Netflix had just added a bunch of new shows and movies like "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "Titanic." There's also a new Netflix series about the Marvel Comics character, "Luke Cage."

Naturally, the internet lost it.

Netflix addressed the issue on Twitter, saying they were working to get things fixed ASAP. But people weren't very patient.

The good news is things are up an running again. Get back to your binge-watching.
