Netflix subscribers in France are passionate about the journey of serial killer Charles Sobhraj. The British series “The Serpent”, with Tahar Rahim in the lead role, is indeed the most popular program in April on the streaming platform, according to data from Flixpatrol. “The Snake” led the daily top 10 playoffs for 11 days, 7 of which were in a row. The series has since been replaced by “Shadow and Bone”, which trustees the first place since the day after its release on April 23. As FlixPatrol’s methodology favors programs released earlier, it does not appear in the monthly top 10, however – but could be included in the May rankings if its success is confirmed.
On the film side, the top-ranked feature film is “Madame Claude”, which topped the daily top 10 for an entire week. Just behind, we find “Love and Monsters”. The post-apocalyptic comedy worn by Dylan O’Brien (“Teen Wolf”, “The Labyrinth”) topped the daily ranking of most viewed movies for eight consecutive days.
