The Netflix Top 10 list won't tell you how many people are watching a show, but it will tell you which shows people are watching the most. The Top 10 list on Thursday, June 17 sees the supernatural drama Manifest, which NBC recently canceled after three seasons, still in the No. 1 spot, with the John Cho-starring animated movie Wish Dragon in second place. Rounding out the rest of the top 5 are the dystopian fantasy series Sweet Tooth, the new season of the sitcom Workin' Moms, and the French heist show Lupin, which just returned with Part 2.

But of the Netflix Top 10, which shows and movies are actually worth watching? We break down the entire Netflix Top 10 list and guide you through what to binge and what to skip. We do the same for Netflix's Top 10 movies, as well as Netflix's Top 10 TV shows.

The Best TV Shows and Movies on Netflix in June 2021

Based on Netflix's Top 10 from Thursday, June 17


1. Manifest


For fans of: Doomed flights, twists and turns, Lost | Is it good?: It'll keep you on your toes

A flight that was presumed missing for five years finally lands, and its passengers reintegrate into society, only to discover that there's a much deeper mystery going on that they work to uncover. (Yesterday's rank: 1)


2. Wish Dragon


For fans of: Aladdin, but with dragons | Is it good?: John Cho voices a dragon, so you can't hate that

The story of Aladdin gets updated to modern-day Shanghai in this animated movie about a college student (Jimmy Wong) who meets a magical dragon (John Cho) and makes a wish to reconnect with his childhood best friend (Natasha Liu Bordizzo). The plot is familiar, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it. (Yesterday's rank: 2)


3. Sweet Tooth


For fans of: Animal-human politics, the end of the world | Is it good?: Give it a shot even if you're over dystopian fantasies

Yeah, yeah, it's another post-apocalyptic show, but this one is kind of adorable? Sweet Tooth, based on the DC comic, is set in the aftermath of a viral outbreak (again, yeah, yeah, but give it a chance) that decimates most of the world's population as a wave of animal-human hybrid children are born. Our hero is Gus, a young half-deer half-human boy, who was raised in the woods by his father and goes on an adventure to find his mother in the American West while evading idiot humans who have an irrational fear of things they don't understand. It's a charming story with an indie-folk vibe that's all of sudden way too relevant. (Yesterday's rank: 3)


4. Workin' Moms


For fans of: Cult sitcoms, giving moms their due | Is it good?: It's fun!

Much like Schitt's Creek, Workin' Moms is a Canadian sitcom that really found its audience when it premiered on Netflix. Catherine Reitman's comedy about four working mothers just trying to get through the day is now in its fifth season, and the show is exploring everything from life after maternity leave to equal pay in the office to dealing with troubled teens. (Yesterday's rank: 5)


5. Lupin


For fans of: French crime, watching people pull off heists | Is it good?: It's very entertaining and easy to get through

Omar Sy stars as Assane Diop, a man who is essentially a French Bruce Wayne if Batman were more of a cat burglar than dark knight. Diop starts the series trying to steal a valuable necklace from the Louvre with a grand heist as part of a revenge plot against the wealthy family responsible for the death of his father several years prior. From there, the heists and trickery get even more fun, and are always performed under the guise of being the good guy. (Yesterday's rank: 4)


6. Cocomelon


For fans of: Mashed vegetables, pacifiers | Is it good?: For babies, sure

Colorful objects, preschool songs, and big-headed babies make this catnip for toddlers and younger kids who get screentime. (Yesterday's rank: 6)

7. Lucifer


For fans of: Supernatural cops, hell puns, the mind of Neil Gaiman | Is it good?: It's a fun time

Talk about divine intervention. The first half of Lucifer Season 5 finally brought God (Dennis Haysbert) to Earth in one hell of a midseason finale cliffhanger. Part 2 finds Lucifer (Tom Ellis) dealing with those daddy issues, but as usual, the show is having plenty of fun along the way. The eight-episode second half of the season also features a musical episode (guest starring Debbie Gibson!) and the return of Eve (Inbar Lavi). And if you binge the season so fast that you need more, here are other shows that all fans of Lucifer will love(Yesterday's rank: 7)


8. The Devil Below


For fans of: Indie horror, buried secrets | Is it good?: It could be a "hole" lot better

This bargain-bin horror film follows researchers investigating an abandoned mine shaft in Appalachia and discovering that something (the devil?) lurks below. (Yesterday's rank: 10)


9. L.A.'s Finest


For fans of: Lady cops, Bad Boys | Is it good?: No, but it has Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union

Gabrielle Union's character from the Bad Boys film franchise gets spun off because why not? The action-comedy was Spectrum's first original scripted series when everyone was making original series, and it was canceled after two seasons because really, who is watching Spectrum original series? Anyway, Union is joined by Jessica Alba as they wisecrack their way through cases as a couple of tough female cops. (Yesterday's rank: 9)


10. Awake


For fans of: Sleepless nights, Gina Rodriguez | Is it good?: Nah

If you're in the mood for a TV show with a sci-fi premise that would definitely fit on NBC's fall schedule but want it condensed into a movie so you don't have to watch 19 episodes of filler, check out Awake, starring Gina Rodriguez as a woman in the middle of a strange global phenomenon that prevents people from sleeping. (Yesterday's rank: 8)
