“We are going to cry in a corner”: Two series that you will not believe will be 10 years old in 2023

The streaming platform is part of the daily life of millions of people around the world, but a decade ago it had practically just entered the lives of viewers.

Netflix came into our lives a long time ago to stay and forever change the way we watch movies and television. Many others would come later, but the big N streaming platform is king, with more than 223 million subscribers worldwide. The SVOD scene is still considered recent, although it is already beginning to experience some changes as it explores new business models, but many will likely be surprised to learn that the company, which started out as a mail-order ticket rental company, , began investing in the streaming business more than 10 years ago.

They do it themselves. In fact, though In Spain Netflix was not operational until the end of 2015, the platform already arrived with prestige behind it and with great expectation. The one that had given it its first years in operation in the United States and by the hand of several self-produced series that achieved great prestige.

And that is precisely what the official Netflix Spain page on Twitter reminds us now that 2023 has begun, in which they highlight in their description that two of their first series, two multi-award-winning fictions with which they began to stand out in the field of original Production, they turn 10 years old in the year we just welcomed: Orange Is The New Black Y house of cards.

In 2023 it will be 10 years since ‘House of Cards’ and ‘Orange is the New Black’ were released. We are going to cry in a corner

It is impossible guess what reception they would have Dyed house of cards Y Orange Is The New Black if it had been released today, but the reality is that, when both saw the light in 2013, criticism fell at his feet. Also in our country, where Netflix was not yet the reality but they arrived from the hand of Movistar.

Developed by Beau Willimon and starring two movie stars -Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright- the political ‘thriller’ about the ins and outs of American politics was a real bombshell in its day and, although now it will always be remembered for the abuse scandal in which by Spacey and which ended with the series being cancelled, during its first five seasons – eventually it would be six – it was the object of great prestige and endless praise. Similarly, the prison fiction developed by Jenji Kohan as an adaptation of a book in which Piper Kerman recounted her experience in prison was also one of Netflix’s hallmarks for years. Specifically during the 7 seasons and almost 100 episodes in which it never even faltered.

Two mythical series that will always be part of the platform’s history and that will be 10 years old in 2023. They are not the only ones. They also celebrate a decade this year
