The Best TV Shows and Movies on Netflix in April 2021

Based on Netflix's Top 10 from Wednesday, April 14

1. Thunder Force


For fans of: Melissa McCarthy, missing the point of The Boys | Is it good?: Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer deserve better

Someone pitched "Melissa McCarthy is a superhero," and Netflix bought it, naturally. The film features the Mike & Molly star and Oscar winner Octavia Spencer as a pair of cape-wearing super-powered crime stoppers who get up to some predictable antics. This is exactly the movie that you think it is. (Yesterday's rank: 1)


2. This Is a Robbery: The World's Biggest Art Heist


For fans of: Heists, Boston accents, good times | Is it good?: It's wicked great

In 1990, a pair of men dressed as cops robbed Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and walked away with 13 masterpieces from artists such as Rembrandt and Degas, and the paintings and the culprits remain missing today. This peppy docuseries investigates what happened through interviews with the colorful characters involved. (Yesterday's rank: 2)


3. Who Killed Sara?


For fans of: Seeking vengeance, melodrama | Is it good?: It's a solid and compelling revenge-mystery

A man sets out to exact revenge on the people who framed him for his sister's murder. (Yesterday's rank: 3)


4. The Serpent


For fans of: Period clothing, true crime | Is it good?: It doesn't tell the whole story, but it gets the job done

There will never be enough shows about serial killers, do you hear me? Never! This one is a British miniseries about notorious murderer Charles Sobhraj (played here by Tahar Rahim) who killed a bunch of people in the mid 1970s. Jenna Coleman plays his girlfriend, Marie-Andrée Leclerc. (Yesterday's rank: 4)


5. Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn


For fans of: Smart children, sibling rivalries | Is it good?: If you love Nickelodeon, sure

Much like iCarly and Big Time Rush, Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn is yet another Nickelodeon show about kids with big personalities. This one is about the titular quadruplets, who don't have a lot in common but manage to get into a bunch of mischief together anyway. Good for them! (Yesterday's rank: 8)

For fans of: Multiple Drew Barrymores, showbiz | Is it good?: Gonna go out on a limb here and say nah

For fans of: Mischief, children, remakes no one asked for | Is it good?: It stinks

This 1994 theatrical remake of the classic early 1900s Our Gang comedy shorts featuring a bunch of kids getting up to no good -- some might call them "little rascals" -- follows what happens when Darla shows up to threaten the very existence of the He-Man Woman Haters Club. (Yesterday's rank: 5)


9. Ginny & Georgia


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

Here are other shows like Ginny & Georgia while you wait for Season 2(Yesterday's rank: 9)
