‘Echoes’ Dethroned On Netflix’s Top 10 List For A New Show

I have to admit, I was surprised at how long the Netflix miniseries Echoes has dominated the top 10 list, but now it’s being replaced by something just as amazing, and at least similar-sounding.

Echoes has now been unseated on Netflix’s top 10 list by a new limited series called Devil in Ohio. Like Echoes, it’s a crime-based miniseries that’s only eight episodes long (Echoes had seven) and seemingly instantly grabbed the attention of the Netflix audience, debuting at number one, knocking Echoes down to number two after more than a week at the top. of the graphics

Also like Echoes, it stars an actress you probably recognize. Echoes had Michelle Monaghan, while Devil in Ohio stars Bones veteran Emily Deschanel, this time investigating a more sinister mystery, a satanic cult in, guess where, Ohio.

Unsurprisingly, Devil in Ohio is based on a book, and we’ve seen Netflix do this with several limited series in the past, which is pretty much what HBO has done with projects like Sharp Objects and Mare of Easttown in the past. past. Echoes, it was actually No based on a book and it was a Netflix original production, so that’s one difference.

It’s a bit early to tell how Devil in Ohio will score with critics and fans alike. The show has a 60% on Rotten Tomatoes, but that’s only from a total of five critics, and a 43% audience score, but that’s only based on seven fan reviews. So I can’t really see that as a firm indicator of quality yet, and we should wait for more reviews to come along.

Elsewhere on the list, I’m a little worried about the fate of Partner Track, the Netflix legal drama that never got past No. 2 on the list. While Netflix may consider many factors when renewing a show, you really want something to hit #1 for at least a short period. But again, it’s all context. If Echoes was hitting sky-high numbers that Partner Track couldn’t hope to hit, it’s not really their fault. And Netflix may not want to kill off its Asian female-led drama just because it’s slightly underperforming, if it’s trying to reach broader audiences, as it claims to want.

The Sandman continues to slide down the list, but it’s still number 5, showing a good amount of staying power, even though season 2 hasn’t been confirmed and Neil Gaiman himself says the show may be too expensive. to keep giving the green light unless Netflix sees it. massive performance of it. Stranger Things, Never Have I Ever, and Virgin River sit in the latter half of the list, still doing very well as some of Netflix’s strongest offerings and long-running series.

As for Devil in Ohio, we’ll see if it becomes a similar phenomenon to Echoes, which rose to the top of the list and stayed there, wowing viewers with its miniseries mystery. These kinds of True Detective-adjacent projects seem to be working for Netflix at the moment, so we may see more as a result.
