Amazon Prime Video is new to this Top 10 thing — the streamer's home page has only been posting the Top 10 for a few weeks now — but it's already showing its tools are better than Netflix's. Why? The new sci-fi TV series Paper Girls was just released today, and it's already on the Top 10 at No. 5. That's fast! Netflix's Top 10 doesn't reflect changes until the day after, so anything released one day won't show up in the Top 10 until the next. This might not be interesting news to you, but it blows my feeble little mind. The big question going into the weekend is if Paper Girls will be big enough to topple The Terminal List, which has been No. 1 for all of July. Tune in Monday to find out!

Below we're listing the Top 10 shows and movies on Amazon Prime Video and also letting you know which ones are good. We'll also list off what's coming next to Amazon Prime Video in the near future so you know what will be on the Top 10 list soon.

New Amazon Prime Video releases:

  • Paper Girls: Time-traveling series about four girls (July 29)
  • Do, Re & Mi: Musical kids show about three birds (July 29)
