Unlike cinema releases, we will never truly know how successful a show or film is on a streaming service. They refuse to publicize any information that would allow analysts to get a good idea of how a project is doing. Luckily, there are a variety of companies that analyze data to offer a glimpse of a show’s performance. Well, it seems that Falcon and the Winter Soldier may have already gained the title of “most popular show” beating out the last owner of that title, the anime series Attack on Titan.
Keep in mind, with only its second episode, the show managed to beat out the finale of the highly popular manga adaptation. Not just that, it is also tracking ahead of the previous Marvel Studios entry, WandaVision after its first week with two episodes. Now, Parrot Analytics does point out that the show is behind The Mandalorian‘s demand, but it makes sense if you consider that the show was one of the major selling points of the streaming service when it was released. They do not include a comparison to the second season.
Of course, the show’s demand grows with each week and it has already managed to do what WandaVision didn’t accomplish until its fifth episode. Of course, we have to keep in mind that these aren’t actual numbers. They are based on external analysis. So, we need to accept a potential margin in tracking errors, but it certainly proves the show’s popularity. It’s going to be interesting to see if they continue this trend once Loki releases in June.
