2019 has been a year full of premieres of movies, series and documentaries, but like everything else in this life, its end comes. Therefore, Netflix has shared through its official Twitter account the statistics of this last year, so that its users can see what content has been the most popular. The platform has shared four listings with the ten most outstanding titles in each category: most popular premieres, series, movies and documentaries. In addition, it has published its methodology when preparing the statistics and, rightly so, was not exempt from debate.
The platform indicates that “these lists are based on the number of accounts they have seen at least two minutes of a series, movie or special in the first 28 days since its premiere on Netflix during 2019 ″. Some users have considered this amount of time unrepresentative, but the company has stated that they use these two minutes to "not discriminate against longer formats and that the result is as accurate as possible", since "it is something common, similar to time which the BBC uses, for example, in its iPlayer rankings ». The first of the categories used by Netflix has been: Most popular premieres of 2019, which include series, films and documentaries.

The Spanish series La casa de papel: Part 3 maintains its position after the success of its first two seasons both outside and within the national territory. Next we have The Witcher, the sorcerer's adventures Geralt de Rivia have quickly placed in second place, its recent launch has not allowed it to climb to first place, which has been occupied by the previous series already mentioned released in mid-2019.
Despite his bad reviews, 6 in the shade has received the bronze beating Elite: T2 and The Irish, in fourth and fifth place respectively. The controversy over the elaboration of these statistics can be seen in the positioning of the 3 and 5 position. Two films released with a month of difference and in which the Irish has taken lower position despite having had better reviews.
