Parrot Analytics: Cobra Kai punches way to top of in-demand chart

Cobra Kai, Netflix’s spin-off from the iconic The Karate Kid movie franchise, has topped Parrot Analytics’ originals in-demand chart for the week ending January 8 in Italy.

Parrot Analytics analyses the demand for recent popular digital titles across international markets, based on the application of artificial intelligence to expressions of demand across social media, fan sites, peer-to-peer protocols and file-sharing platforms. The analyst illustrates demand expressions based on how much more popular a charted title is than an average TV show.

The Netflix comedy-drama attracted 29.69 times the demand of an average show, significantly beating out the streamer’s dark fantasy series The Witcher, which was in second with 22.44 times the demand of an average show.

Netflix features two more times in the chart with perennial hit La Casa De Papel and returning comedy Emily in Paris in fourth and ninth respectively.

The spoils are shared equally with Disney+, which also features four times with Star Wars spin-offs The Mandalorian (third, 17.91 times the demand of an average show), and The Book of Boba Fett (fifth, 12.96 times). Marvel series WandaVision and Hawkeye also feature in seventh and eighth respectively.

Rounding out the chart are two titles from Amazon – the sci-fi hit The Expanse in sixth and fantasy adaptation The Wheel of Time in tenth.
