The Best TV Shows and Movies on Netflix in March 2021

Based on Netflix's Top 10 from Friday, March 5

 

1. Ginny & Georgia


For fans of: Mothers and daughters | Is it good?: It's like a darker, weirder Gilmore Girls -- which makes it fun!

This dramedy follows Georgia (Brianne Howey) and her two kids, 15-year-old Ginny (Antonia Gentry) and 9-year-old Austin, as they move from Texas to a small town in Massachusetts. The family is starting over following the sudden death of Georgia's husband, and she might also be running away from a closet full of skeletons. It's part teen drama as Ginny explores a new high school and part mystery thriller as Georgia's demons come to chase her down. (Yesterday's rank: 1)

 

2. Murder Among the Mormons


For fans of: True crime, feeling unsettled | Is it good?: It's definitely interesting and pretty revealing

This three-part docuseries examines a series of 1985 bombings that killed two people and injured another in Salt Lake City. The murders led to the discovery of the White Salamander Letter, which caused a pivotal change to occur within the Mormon community. (Yesterday's rank: 2)



3. Moxie


For fans of: Amy Poehler, ambitious teen girl characters | Is it good?: It's not the greatest teen movie of all time, but it's funny and sweet

Amy Poehler directs and co-stars in this comedy about a 16-year-old girl (Hadley Robinson) who, inspired by her mother's (Poehler) rebellious past, starts a zine calling out sexism at her school. (Yesterday's rank: 7)



4. Bigfoot Family


For fans of: Mythical creatures living among humans | Is it good?: It's nothing special, but kids will probably enjoy it

In this sequel to 2017's The Son of Bigfoot, Bigfoot (Roger Craig Smith) has since become a celebrity and wants to use his fame for good. But when he agrees to help an environmental organization protect a nature reserve, he mysteriously disappears without a trace, leaving his family to track him down. (Yesterday's rank: 3)

 

5. iCarly


For fans of: Nostalgia, Nickelodeon-style comedy | Is it good?: Ask the Gen Z-er in your life

Let's make this very clear: People who grew up with iCarly love iCarly, a show that centers on a teen vlogger (Miranda Cosgrove) who stars in a web series that she produces with her two friends. It was wildly popular when it was on TV and became the inspiration for many memes. Even if you haven't seen it, you've definitely heard of it, which makes it pretty iconic. (Yesterday's rank: 5)

6. Behind Her Eyes


For fans of: Mysteries, duplicitous people | Is it good?: It's certainly twisty

Based on the novel by Sarah Pinborough, this series follows a woman who begins an affair with her married boss while also befriending his wife. It results in a lot of mind games, and you get the sense that Nicole Kidman might've starred in this in another universe. (Yesterday's rank: 6)

 

7. Biggie: I Got a Story to Tell


For fans of: The Notorious B.I.G. | Is it good?: It doesn't tell Biggie's whole story, but what it does tell is moving

There are few people in music more mythologized than Christopher Wallace, aka the Notorious B.I.G., aka Biggie Smalls, and this doc, which was produced by Wallace's mother, seeks to tell some of the real story of the man behind the rap moniker. If you're looking for a complete portrait of Biggie, you'll have to look elsewhere, but this film is a good primer for anyone who wants to learn more about the tragically short life of an icon. (Yesterday's rank: 4)



8. 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: 9)



9. Good Girls


For fans of: Crime, people making bad decisions | Is it good?: It's a true underrated gem

In the third season of this NBC crime dramedy, the stakes are higher than ever as Beth (Christina Hendricks) tries to process her guilt after shooting Rio (Manny Montana) while she, Annie (Mae Whitman), and Ruby (Retta) start a new scheme that involves a whole lot of counterfeit money. (Yesterday's rank: 8)



10. Training Day


For fans of: Denzel Washington, baby! | Is it good?: Washington's Academy Award-winning performance makes it good

Denzel Washington tears up the screen as a corrupt cop who's assigned to train an LAPD rookie played by Ethan Hawke. It's got a less than satisfying ending, but Washington's villainous performance makes this gritty thriller work. (Yesterday's rank: n/a)
