Look, I’m not gonna faux I’m an enormous My Little Pony fan, but it surely’s sufficient of a cultural phenomenon that I’d be remiss as knowledgeable tradition author to not at the least be interested in it. My Little Pony: A New Technology marks the fifth incarnation of the My Little Pony franchise — see, I didn’t even know there have been “incarnations” of My Little Pony, not to mention 5 of them — set a few years after the occasions of the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic collection and following a brand new group of pony mates who embark on an epic quest to revive magic to the land of Equestria and reunite the tribes of ponykind as a complete.

Nothing will ever defeat Cocomelon. The solar will go supernova earlier than Cocomelon is finished. Bow to Cocomelon.
In case your child has to look at one thing (or probably you’re tuning in your self? No judgment right here!), the animated-nursery-rhymes-and-songs-YouTube-channel-turned-Netflix-animated-series is without doubt one of the hottest kids’s reveals on the service this week. It’s superb — it’s been on the listing since final fall and solely fell off as soon as, and reveals no indicators of going away … ever!
7. Seinfeld

Picture: Photofest

What’s the cope with Seinfeld? No actually, I don’t know: I used to be a baby within the ’90s in the course of the present’s cultural apex and my style in tv again then skewed nearer to the animated adventures of Spider-Man. Possibly it’s lastly time for me to suck it up and behold the sitcom shenanigans of a fictitious comic Jerry Seinfeld (performed by the precise comic Jerry Seinfeld) and his kooky group of grownup mates. Netflix paid over $500 million {dollars} for the unique worldwide streaming rights to the collection, so perhaps I’ll lastly get round to watching a full episode of the collection now that I’m an grownup. The collection was added to Netflix final Friday, which explains why it’s on this week’s high 10 listing.
6. The Duff

Mae Whitman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) stars in Ari Sandel’s 2015 teen comedy The Duff as Bianca, a benign highschool whose sense of self worth is radically upended when she learns that the scholar physique is aware of her because the “Designated Ugly Fats Buddy,” or “Duff” of the favored women.

The movie was simply added to Netflix this previous Friday, which is why it’s on this week’s high 10.
5. Midnight Mass

Midnight Mass, Mike Flanagan’s long-gestating follow-up to 2018’s The Haunting of Hill Home and 2020’s The Haunting of Bly Home, is a supernatural mystery-thriller that facilities on the denizens of Crockett Island, an remoted fishing city on the point of collapse whose long-simmering animosities are uncovered and infected by the mysterious arrival of a charismatic priest with a darkish secret. From our evaluation:
Midnight Mass appears like Flanagan’s most difficult work up to now, each for him and for his viewers. The present has been within the works for a decade, and it’s an intensely private story for Flanagan. That’s hardly new for him — Hill Home and Physician Sleep deftly explored dependancy and restoration by means of the lens of horror. And Flanagan has spoken about his journey with sobriety and the way it formed Midnight Mass extensively. That vibrantly private exploration — Flanagan labored on the scripts for all seven episodes, together with the 4 co-written along with his brother James — is what makes the present so really feel so potent and alive, but additionally what presents a few of its hardest-to-parse moments.
4. The Responsible

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in Antoine Fuqua’s The Responsible as Joe Baylor, a LAPD officer-turned-emergency name operator making an attempt desperately to a save the lifetime of a caller as town is wracked by a lethal forest fireplace. Not every thing is because it appears nevertheless, as Joe should flip to unconventional means in an effort to come to his caller’s help and uncover the reality behind their encounter. Gyllenhaal’s function is way cry from the unhinged derangement of his efficiency in 2014’s Nightcrawler, however the tone of trailer feels outstanding comparable in its implicit insidiousness. Written by True Detective writer-creator Nic Pizzolatto, The Responsible seems as engrossing and thrilling as something Fuqua and Gyllenhaal have achieved previously. From our evaluation:
Although Fuqua’s movies haven’t shied away from the misdeeds of legislation enforcement — recall the showy, malevolent character that gained Washington his Coaching Day Oscar — they’re often juxtaposed with harmless, trustworthy police. The Responsible solely actually has one “actual” cop on display screen in any respect; the remainder are voices on the opposite finish of the telephone, or officers who aren’t irritated about their full-time work on the name heart. The phone-only forged is spectacular: Peter Sarsgaard, Riley Keough, Ethan Hawke, Da’Vine Pleasure Randolph, and Paul Dano all name in, as if this had been a supersized episode of Frasier.
3. Maid

Impressed by Stephanie Land’s New York Instances best-selling memoir, Molly Smith Metzler’s streaming miniseries Maid stars Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers) as Alex Russell, a younger single mom who turns into a housecleaner and maid in an effort to escape her abusive residence life and supply a greater life for her daughter Maddy.

1. Squid Sport

The South Korean survival drama Squid Sport soared to the highest spot of the Netflix high 10 this week following its premiere earlier this month, and it’s simple to grasp why. The present’s premise resembles a nightmarish Technicolor mashup of Battle Royale and Large Brother, following the tales of seven individuals who, together with 449 different excellent strangers, are kidnapped and subjected to a wierd collection of challenges that resemble schoolyard video games like Pink Gentle, Inexperienced Gentle and tug of struggle in a contest to win $38.5 million.
