Fans have flocked to Twitter to lavish Lupin with praise, with one writing: "Two episodes in and I've decided that Lupin is the best thing on Netflix."

"Lupin is some of that amazing French storytelling in the tradition of Dumas. Plus, it's perfectly f***ing French (subtitles, of course), set in Paris," added a second.
