As excited as we've gotten over the past few years with the original content coming out of Netflix, one hardly takes a second to think about just how much they've accomplished. Netflix put out its first sponsored show, Lilyhammer, in 2012 partnering with NRK/Norway. A year later, on February 1, 2013, the first season of House of Cards was released and the rest is (recent) history.
Nothing gives a better sense of Netflix's output in the past almost four years as this illustration made for Netflix in Singapore by graphic designer Natalie Kwee. Here we see a variety of Netflix's original series' characters drawn like a page out of Where's Waldo?
The picture looks like it restricts itself to Netflix's original television series, of which there are more than 70, and another 70-ish in some part of production at the moment. Count up everything on Netflix's original content Wikipedia page and there is just shy of 300 shows, movies, television specials, continuations, and works in progress listed. The scope is beyond impressive.
The 2016 Emmy Awards are around the corner and Netflix ranks third among all networks with 54 nominations. They trail after veteran networks HBO and FX, with only five years of Emmy eligibility under their belt.
So here's the real test, how much of a Netflix fan are YOU? While the picture above doesn't appear to include their Marvel shows (Jessica Jones and Daredevil) it looks like its mostly up to date with their original series. How many of the characters do you recognize? Can you answer all the questions below about various characters?
