Move over Sandman, Netflix has a new number one show
Netflix's latest thriller topples the fantasy epic.
The Sandman is one of the best shows Netflix has released for a long time and while it still remains popular with viewers (which we hope means it will get a second season), its top TV show crown has slipped with new thriller Echoes now number one.
Echoes, compared to The Sandman, is a far more straightforward drama - albeit one with some massive twists.
The premise is this: "Identical twins Leni and Gina have secretly switched places for years. But when one sister disappears, both of their lives start to fall apart."
The identical twins in question are played by Mission: Impossible's Michelle Monaghan.
Reviews for the show have been scattershot. While Rotten Tomatoes has got it at a mere 29%, the reviewers who like it are from the likes of Variety and The Wrap.
Variety notes: "It’s twisty, but repetitive, making sure every plot point gets several scenes to marinate. All the while, Michelle Monaghan throws herself into the challenge of portraying twins with the delirious freedom that the show’s hyperbolic framework allows."
