The Netflix Top 10 list, which tells you which shows and movies are most popular on the platform, is the ideal place to start if you’re trying to decide what to watch next. On Friday, October 1, on the top 10 list, we are ushering in a new month, the scariest of the year! — with Squid still at n. 1. Will something interrupt his reign? I mean, the horror miniseries Midnight mass and Britney vs. Spears are proving to be quite popular in the n. 2 and n. 3, but not as much as Squid! Nothing will be as popular as Squid Gamme!

But of Netflix’s Top 10, what shows and movies are really worth watching? We break down the full Netflix top 10 list and walk you through what to binge and what to skip. We do the same with the 10 best Netflix TV shows, as well as the 10 best Netflix movies. We also have our list of the 50 best shows and movies to watch on Netflix right now, as well as the best movies to watch on Netflix and the best TV shows on Netflix.

Based on the Netflix Top 10 of Friday, October 1

1. Squid


For fans of: Violence, cruelty, cash | It’s fine?: It’s exciting, totally crazy and worth your time.

A group of participants compete in a series of childhood games with deadly consequences: Red Light, Green Light includes a giant robot doll that shoots the competitors if they move, for example, and the last one standing wins the cash prize. It has a mix of Real battle and Running man on it, and you can’t go wrong with that if you’re looking for something completely messy. (Yesterday’s rank: 1)

2. Midnight mass


For fans of: Stephen King, The curse of Hill Housebrain horror | It’s fine?: We really love it

After The curse of Hill House and The curse of Bly Manor, creator Mike Flanagan continues what he does best with another winning horror miniseries, only this time he passes the haunted house and heads to an entire haunted island. The seven-episode series takes place in a fishing community 30 miles from the mainland and brings religion to the limelight when a new charismatic priest (Hamish Linklater) arrives on the island promising to lead his growing flock to the salvation. As you can guess, it doesn’t quite work that way. Telling him more would be a disservice to the narrative. (Yesterday’s rank: 2)

3. Britney vs. Spears


For fans of: The Britney Spears Guardianship Case | It’s fine?: It is the weakest of all Britney documents so far.

If you feel there has been a lot from Britney Spears documentaries recently, you’d be right. (In particular, Spears not a fan of them.) Netflix’s offer to the conversation is Britney vs. Spears, which has to do with Spears’ much-publicized struggle to escape her father-led guardianship, but the problem with this is that she has nothing new to say in a genre that is rapidly becoming saturated. Even the biggest Britney fans I know are skipping this one, and you can too. (Yesterday’s rank: 3)

Four. Nobody gets out alive


For fans of: The class division, the immigrant experience | It’s fine?: It will scare you down to your pants

A Latin American immigrant looking for work and housing in the United States is staying in a pension where things are not haunted, if you understand me. It is a great jewel of terror that takes advantage of the experience of immigrants and the difficulties that the poor have with their basic needs. (Yesterday’s ranking 🙂

5. My Little Pony: A New Generation


For fans of: Ponies, reboots of beloved childhood estates | It’s fine?: The kid in your life will probably love it.

You remember My Little Pony? That’s it, but now all the ponies look like today’s big-eyed Disney characters and Vanessa Hudgens voices one of them. Specifically, she plays the new pony in town, who wants to help restore magic in Equestria. Hope the bronies are really enjoying this one. (Yesterday’s rank: 6)

6. Sex education


For fans of: Children Discovering Themselves, British Accents, Gillian Anderson | It’s fine?: It’s one of the best teen shows right now.

The best-dressed British teenagers on television are about to change their look: school uniforms. The Netflix charmer, daring on the outside and sweet on the inside Sex education is shaking life up in Moordale in season 3, which recovers as the students begin a new period. Desperate to reform Moordale’s reputation as the “sex school,” new principal Hope (Girls student Jemima Kirke) takes drastic measures to enforce order, which are going as well as you might expect. Where are Otis (Asa Butterfield) and Maeve (Emma Mackey) when their teammates need them? Unfortunately, it is still down after a certain voicemail was deleted. (Yesterday’s rank: 9)

7. The adults


For fans of: Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, Kevin James, Rob Schneider | It’s fine?: It is certainly a movie

This is one of those “Adam Sandler needed some money to add an extra wing to one of his many houses” movies. It’s about four childhood friends (played by Sandler, Rock, Spade, and James) who reunite after their high school basketball coach dies. I haven’t seen him in many years, but the most important thing I remember about him is a scene where Kevin James urinates in a public swimming pool and turns the water blue, so that’s the kind of thing to expect from this one. Did you know The adults came out 11 years ago? Just something to think about. (Yesterday’s rank: 8)

9. Cocomelon


For fans of: Vegetable puree, pacifiers | It’s fine?: For babies, safe

Colorful objects, preschool songs, and big-headed babies make this catnip for toddlers and younger children who spend time on screen. (Yesterday’s rank: 10)

10. The circle


For fans of: People stuck in a place with no way out, but in a fun way | It’s fine?: Not as fun as it was in season 1

It seems as if The circle it just premiered its second season, but in any case, it is already back for a third. The Netflix competition series follows contestants who are confined to their own rooms in an apartment complex and can only communicate with each other via social media. There are tons of cat fishing, tons of poorly kept secrets, and tons of cheesy hashtags. Not a lot of new things happening here! (Yesterday’s rank: 4)
