This Show is a perfect example that algorithms Decides what becomes a success nowadays.
It became the most successful Show ever because netflix deciced to shove it down everybodys throat and meme it everywhere.

This show was just a perfect storm of everything that makes a piece of media explode into popularity in the modern day, whether this was deliberate is up to you. It feels like a retread of AOT's success IMO except if you replace the lesbian-baiting with gay-baiting and gooks with nips.

I don't even go anywhere but /tv/ so this is where I learned about it. Learning about something doesn't make me want to watch it; I watch it if it looks good and Squid Game's premise was interesting enough to draw me in. It's kind of like a korean Saw but you win money if you survive.
Claiming that it's successful because of "algorithims" is quite low IQ thinking because the show wouldn't be Korean if that were the case. Are you hitting every demographic by pushing a Korean show? No, but if the show is good then people will watch it. I saw there are dubs for the show (yuck) which also widens the potential audience.

This.
Also:
>neon colors
>easy to understand plot
>clearly visually distinctive groups (green = good; pink = le bad; remembering characters or faces is too difficult; numbers were added for the same reason)
>le gruesome violence XDD
>generally memeable stuff (e.g. the honeycomb things, normies love food, can easily be reharshed into about a billion tiktok videos)
>generally child-themed to make frenchise marketable too younger audience who didn't even watch the show once peak hype is reached
It's like TikTok and eastern european click farm yt channels sat together to create the ultimate money making show

Here's a foreign show that was on Netflix but I don't think it did nearly as well as Squid Game. Probably because it was more complex whereas Squid Game is about children's games (you die if you lose, though) and Dark was about time travel, which is always a normie filter unless it's a minor part of the story like in Interstellar.
So yeah, unless this so called algorithm is some genius AI that figured out that making a show foreign is a way to avoid diversity then my money is on Netflix getting lucky.

it's shit. It's dredging the bottom of overdone anime genre and dressing it in shit.
It's kaiji, but a kaiji that knows it's game are shit, and therefore pad things up with endless drama and backstories, either stupid, incoherent, or uninteresting.
Even the shittiest gambling anime didn't culminate in "just beat each other up lol" like squid game did.
At this point, in 2 years, Netflix will release an isekai show, but one which waste half it's screentime on character IRL/left behind.

Their race had nothing to do with why they were annoying, though. It was the horrible dialogue they were given. The fat rich guy turned out to be homosexual and wanted oral sex from the hero. So... what this dumb Chelsea bitch is complaining about is the writing and just felt the need to attack white people when the show was almost certainly written by Koreans.

That's nice to hear. I probably don't watch anything you like and if you watch nothing then I probably have every other thread you have open filtered.

Kaiji:
>I'm in debt and key expensive car for fun because i'm a retard. Takes less than 20 minutes, then spend 4 hours on playing cards on a boat.
Squid game:
>I'm in debt and have a daugther and need money and have an elderly mother and lose on horses and win on horses and get the money stolen and fuck up my daugther birthday and need money and have a childhood friend and then come back from the game and go to the cops and they don't believe me and my mother is sick, etc etc

It's unending and pointless. The point came across in the first 5 minutes, then there's an hour to make sur to hammer it, then another hour in the second episode because it's written by retards.

The success of this show doesn't actually matter to me but considering how long I've been on this website, it's a good sign if I've watched it. Normies will watch what they're told but I only watch stuff that's good and this show was good enough that I watched it all in one go, lol.
So yeah, this show was watched by the remnants of 4chan and it doesn't actually matter what some newniglet does or doesn't watch. I took screenshots, I made webms and they can talk about the trash they like half heartedly while I fully support the things I like.

Dude it is literally no different from how they promoted “hit” shows in the 80’s and 90’s pre internet.
Netflix has a massive amount of control over what people watch because most people aren’t scrolling through their whole catalogue before deciding what to watch. They’re gonna watch whatever new thing they put on their Home Screen because they turn on the app and it just starts playing. If it looks interesting enough or weird enough people will just say “fuck it let’s give it a shot”. Then they’ll promote it across platforms on social media and shill ads for it and push discussion to the top of people’s feeds.
But this is no different from how NBC or CBS used to promote their shows. You’d turn on the TV and every other commercial would be
>CRITICS ARE RAVING. ER IS THE NEW MUST WATCH SHOW THAT YOU MUST WATCH OR YOU’RE MISSING OUT AND YOUR FRIENDS WILL CALL YOU A FAG
And you’d see it shilled in the papers and in the morning shows on the radio etc.
it’s normie slop and it goes into the normie trough. Algorithms? Who needs algorithms they had all this in place 70 years ago.
Friends didn’t need “algorithms” to become a cultural phenomenon in the 90’s. LOST and American Idol didn’t need it in the 2000’s

What's happening in 6 weeks? I don't forget about the last show I watched until there's something new and good. I thought about The North Water until Squid Game came out so I hope there's something good in 6 weeks or you're just making shit up.

>>157646534
>shills come on this board to get us to pirate their stuff
Jej. It's always funny to me when I get called a shill then I post an image with a filename containing the name of the torrent.
People need to lay off the weed or whatever drugs they're on that's causing them to see shills everywhere.

>>157644978
This is something that makes discussions about streaming difficult. Why do you think Bridgerton failed? People talked about it every bit as much when it came out as they are talking about Squid Game now, and aside from the hot takes about the 'rape' they generally loved it. The show has rekindled interest in the books, despite being made decades ago. Netflix themselves said it was a huge success, but their metrics are 'did people watch it for more than two minutes' and 'how long did social media keep talking about it'. Even negative conversations about a show or movie counts as success to them. In their eyes Death Note was successful.
>>
>>157646659
>People talked about it every bit as much when it came out as they are talking about Squid Game now

On Reddit or wherever you're from, maybe. Post proof of those 4chan discussions of Bridgerton or whatever the fuck the show is called because I've never seen it mentioned on 4chan. The only metric that should matter to a 4channer is success on 4chan and Squid Game is being discussed whereas that race mixing propaganda wasn't.

The worst part about blatant Netflix shilling is that it's easy to handwave off as a coincidence (what? people on 4chan can't like le gory lgbt mixed race superhero show on the day it came out or something?) as well as the fact that the nature of propaganda is self-fulfilling - especially online media since it's so easy to watch if you have the means or a torrent client. All we can hope for is for someone on the inside to get fed up with their bullshit and leak some stuff.

Shilling works exactly the same on 4chan because most people - no matter where they come from - have shit fucking taste and will lap up anything with a gimmick, humour and social approval.
>>
>>157647499
I'm a newfag, am I? Well, I have four Squid Game threads open and you can stay and discuss Squid Game with me or check your other threads that are filtered or open a new thread that I'll likely have filtered. Who was your favourite character?
>>
>>157647496
What's blatant is the trend of shitty Netflix shows that no one's ever heard of receiving threads soon after they've come out that are always accompanied with bland, positive replies. The shows that actually get popular (as a result of shilling/artificial response- not marketing) are hard to call out as products of shilling, but it is easy to pay attention to the catalog and number all of the literal who bullshit that gets a decent amount of threads with lukewarm response before suddenly disappearing and never being mentioned again.

Another fun fact: notice how especially defensive and sensitive these "ordinary 4chan posters" always get in these Big N approved threads. It's always the same shit. Fucking television ought to have it's own fucking board already.
>>
>>157646248
