The Irishman is one of Netflix's most-anticipated releases of the year but if there's one thing putting people off watching it, it's the running time.

Yep, believe it or not, some people find it difficult to get the time for a three-and-a-half sitting, even if the reviews of the Martin Scorcese crime flick have been pretty favourable so far.

Well, for those who prefer bite-sized binges to epic marathons, someone has come up with the perfect system of watching The Irishman without your backside going numb from sitting on the sofa all evening.

Alexander Dunerfors Kardelo, editor-in-chief of Swedish publication Moviezine, has tweeted an image which depicts how to watch the lengthy clip in the form of four separate parts, each one ending at points where a TV show might wrap up an episode. The post has been shared nearly four thousand times at the time of writing and you check out Alexander's guide below:

If you're not bothered doing the maths, allow us to tell you the length of each episode:

Episode 1: 49 minutes

Episode 2: 51 minutes

Episode 3: One hour and seven minutes

Episode 4: 42 minutes

So there you are now, your Monday to Thursday telly schedule sorted. We can think of some other movies that could do with a system like this, namely Titanic, The Green Mile and any of The Lord Of The Rings.

Make it happen, Alexander.
