Netflix's Top 10 list of TV shows is the only place to figure out which shows are doing well on the streaming service and which aren't, because Netflix sure isn't going to tell you exact viewership numbers. The Netflix Top 10 list of TV shows for Tuesday, July 27 once again sees the Virgin River juggernaut keeping romance-starved aunts glued to Netflix, as the series has held on to the top spot for almost three weeks. New to the list at No. 6 is The Walking Dead, which pops up again after the release of Season 10. And we say goodbye to Sexy Beasts, the ridiculous reality series that was too freaky, even for our incurable boredom. 

But of Netflix's Top 10 TV shows, which shows are actually worth watching? We break down the entire Netflix Top 10 TV shows list and guide you through what to binge and what to skip. We do the same for Netflix's Top 10 moviesas well as Netflix's overall Top 10 list. If you're looking ahead, here are the best shows to watch on Netflix in July.

Based on Netflix's Top 10 TV shows for Tuesday, July 27

1. Virgin River

For fans of: Hallmark movies | Is it good?: It's certainly popular

It's almost hard to believe how popular Netflix's romance series is, but it's now in its third season, so clearly it's doing something right. Season 3 picks up after Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) found Jack (Martin Henderson) bleeding out on the floor of his bar, Doc's (Tim Matheson) grim diagnosis, and Paige (Lexa Doig) leaving her son in the care of Preacher (Colin Lawrence) after her ex-husband's twin brother discovered where she was. Bring on the romance, bring on the drama, bring on the quaint small town vibes. (Yesterday's rank: 1)

2. 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 unravel. (Yesterday's rank: 2)

3. Never Have I Ever

For fans of: Teen romance, the voice of John McEnroe | Is it good?: The second season isn't as great as the first, but it's nice to have Devi back

Never have we ever missed John McEnroe's narration so much. Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) and friends are back for more high school hijinks in Season 2, which finds Devi feeling insecure about a new classmate as she tries to choose between Ben (Jaren Lewison) and Paxton (Darren Barnet)... unless she can find a way to date both at once. (Yesterday's rank: 3)

4. 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: 4)

5. Sex/Life

For fans of: Sex scenes, mostly | Is it good?: It's fine

This new drama series looks like, as one YouTube commenter put it, "a dramatized mid-life crisis." That's not far off! Basically, it's all about a bored suburban mom (Sarah Shahi) who gets in touch with her debaucherous past. (Yesterday's rank: 6)

6. The Walking Dead

For fans of: Zombies, humans that are worst than zombies, coral | Is it good?: What do you think?

With Season 10 fresh on Netflix, AMC's long-running zombie drama is back in the Top 10. This is the season the survivors took on The Whisperers following Alpha's massacre, and it was also Michonne's (Danai Gurira) last season. (Yesterday's rank: n/a)

7. Masters of the Universe: Revelation

For fans of: He-Man lore | Is it good?: It's fun on its own, but it's most fun for people familiar with the source material

Whether you're a lifelong fan of He-Man or you only know him from the classic "What's Going On?" video, you'll probably get some enjoyment out of this animated series, which is a direct sequel to the '80s cartoon He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, and follows He-Man's (Chris Wood) battle against Skeletor (Mark Hamill) to prevent the end of the universe. (Yesterday's rank: 5)

8. The Movies That Made Us

For fans of: '90s movies, watching a plan come together | Is it good?: It's a must-watch for cinephiles

Season 2 of this entertaining docuseries looks back on the creation of cinematic classics Forrest Gump, Jurassic Park, Pretty Woman, and Back to the Future, going inside the frequently troubled productions with the people who made the movies. It's a whole new way to appreciate movies you already love. (Yesterday's rank: 7)

9. Atypical

For fans of: Heartwarming family dramedies | Is it good?: It's one of the sweetest shows on TV

In its fourth and final season, Atypical finds Sam (Keir Gilchrist) about to leave college and figuring out where in the world he wants to go. You might cry, but you're supposed to. (Yesterday's rank: 10)

10. Heist

For fans of: ...Heists! It's kind of in the title | Is it good?: It's not as good as it should be

For everyone who's ever wanted to learn a little more about some of the most famous heists in history -- how they went down, how they were pulled off, what happened after -- this is definitely the true crime docuseries for you. For the casual fan, things sometimes drag on too long and the criminals are portrayed as heroes. (Yesterday's rank: 8)

Here's what's worth watching in Netflix's overall Top 10 (movies and TV shows)
