What to see on Netflix High 10 Rankings on December third

The Netflix Top 10 list doesn’t show how many people watch a program, but it does show which shows the most people watch. Virgin River Season 2 holds its first spot in the top 10 list for Thursday, December 3, while three action films – Jennifer Garner’s Peppermint, the indie thriller Rust Creek, and Ryan Phillippes’ The 2nd – have taken the lead on The largest part of the top 5. The crown was also officially dethroned and moved up to 7th place.

But of the Netflix Top 10, which of these shows and movies are really worth watching? We break down the entire Netflix top 10 list and walk you through what to do and what to skip.

The best TV shows and movies on Netflix in November 2020

Based on Netflix’s top 10 as of December 3rd

1. Virgin River

For fans of: Hallmarkian romance, heartwarming flow of tears | It is good?: It’s a fun time for every hopeless romantic out there

Based on the Virgin River novels by author Robyn Carr, the romantic drama Alexandra Breckenridge plays as Melinda “Mel” Monroe, a midwife and nurse from Los Angeles who moves to a beautiful but remote town in Northern California after a series of traumatic heartache attacks. It all has a very distinctive atmosphere, but in a good way! (Rank yesterday: 1)

2. Peppermint

For fans of: Jennifer Garner, mothers who take revenge | It is good?: Not really

Jennifer Garner plays a mother on a mission to get revenge on the cartel that killed her husband and daughter. It was shot critically and full of typical action movie clichés, but Garner’s performance makes it visible. (Rank yesterday: 6)

3. The 2nd.

For fans of: Ryan Phillippe, cheesy action films | It is good?: Nothing special

Ryan Phillippe plays a man named Vic Davis who is charged with saving his crush, who is also the daughter of a Supreme Court after she was kidnapped. Since she is someone else’s child, The 2nd rotates the usual “daughter is taken” plot. (Rank yesterday: 2)

4. Rest Creek

For fans of: Survival thriller, fear | Is it Well?: Yes

A student makes a wrong turn on the way to an interview and leaves her stuck in an unknown forest. Suddenly pursued by two unscrupulous men, she has to hide with a mysterious meth chef to survive. It’s a wild ride. (Rank yesterday: 10)

5. The Queen’s Gambit

For fans of: Chess, drugs and character drama | It is good?: It’s one of the best shows of the year

Budding superstar Anya Taylor-Joy (she was cast as Young Furiosa in the next Mad Max movie) stars in this literary adaptation as Beth Harmon, a brilliant but troubled chess master in Kentucky in the 1950s. She was an orphan who developed an incredible skill for playing in her teens, but also a debilitating addiction to pills that calmed her obsessed mind. It’s a detailed character study of brilliance and madness that is usually reserved for male characters. It comes from one of Netflix’s limited series producers, Godless’ Scott Frank.

6. The Christmas Chronicles 2

For fans of: Kurt Russell, Goldie Hawn, Christmas | It is good?: The first is better, but there is still a good dose of holiday joy

In the 2018 sequel to The Christmas Chronicles, Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn return as Santa and Mrs. Claus, which is pretty delightful on its own. However, there’s also a conspiracy here with Kate Pierce (Darby Camp), who grew up into a cynical teenager and teams up with the Clauses to save Christmas after being threatened by an elf who turned bad. (Rank yesterday: 2)

7. The crown

For fans of: Palace intrigue, the royals | It is good?: It’s the best season so far

The ambitious, decade-long drama series about Queen Elizabeth II is back in season two with Olivia Colman in the lead and season four overall, adding two key characters to the mix: Margaret Thatcher (the great Gillian Anderson) and Princess Diana (Emma Corrin ), both of which clash with the queen. Your addition breathes new life into the series that remains one of the greatest on television. (Rank yesterday: 5)


8. Extraterrestrial worlds

For fans of: Beings beyond, space, want to believe | Is it Well?: Yes, and it looks beautiful

If you’ve ever seen planet Earth and thought, “I want this, but scary” then Alien Worlds is the show for you. Netflix’s new documentaries don’t introduce us to real aliens (unfortunately), but they do use CGI to imagine what life on other planets might be like. It goes a little too far into science fiction at times, but it’s an intriguing (and terrifying) exploration of what could exist beyond our world. (Rank yesterday: n / a)

9. The Grinch

For fans of: Spoilsport | It is good?: It’s good

Benedict Cumberbatch speaks to Dr. Seuss’ legendary green man who learns to love Christmas. You know the story and this CG customization doesn’t add much to it. But it doesn’t distract from it either. It’s better than the Jim Carrey version, but not as good as the original version. (Rank yesterday: 7)

10. Cocomelon

For fans of: Vegetable puree, pacifier | Is it Well?: Safe for babies

Colorful items, preschool songs, and big-headed babies make this catnip for toddlers and younger kids who have the time. (Rank yesterday: 9)
