“It reminds me of the X-Men”: still at the top of the Netflix Top 5, this science fiction series is a real standout

After “Bridgerton” and “The Coke Clan”, has the British science fiction series “SupraCell” managed to maintain its place?

Number 1: SupraCell


In London, a group of ordinary people who have nothing in common develop superpowers. Michael Lasaki will have to bring them together to save the woman he loves.

Spectator rating: 3.6/5

According to Noa (5/5)

I loved this series, it captivated me, I recommend it to fans of Afro-UK and Afro-American series, and even for those who like series about drugs and cities, I’m impatiently waiting for season 2.

According to Flower 0478 (5/5)

For me, I loved the series. I finished season 1 quickly. The actors play well for my part. The series reminds me of X-MEN, I can’t wait to discover season 2. I highly recommend this new series.

According to Boris B (3/5)

Let’s say it’s not bad, but it’s too much of what we’ve already seen… Nothing new. No surprises, characters without charisma… it’s a quick watch and we’re in no hurry to see what happens next.

Why does it work?

A superhero series that isn’t a Marvel series? That’s already a good point to get out of “superhero fatigue”. SupraCell seems to renew the genre, already by setting its action in England, in London. The British touch always makes the difference, especially by referencing very popular series like Misfits. There is a little side of The Wire, with the context of “South London”, this district of the capital where gangs fight each other. The short format of six episodes is not to displease either. The series can be binged in a day!

Number 2: The Man with a Thousand Children


Families discover that the charismatic man they trusted is the father of hundreds, even thousands, of children around the world.

Spectator rating: 3.1/5

Why does it work?

If you thought you’d heard it all, Netflix is ​​here to prove you wrong. It does so again with The Man with a Thousand Children, a four-episode documentary series that focuses on Jonathan Jacob Meijer, a Dutchman determined to become the world’s greatest father. This investigation is worth a watch for its testimonies, its revelations and the subject’s strange personality.

Number 3: Pieces of our life


Due to a rare occurrence, a woman discovers she is expecting twins from two different fathers. She struggles to keep her family together, and her secrets hidden.

Spectator rating: 3.1/5

There are currently no comments on the listing.

Why does it work?

It’s a new South American soap opera that’s currently a hit on the platform and it’s without any promotion that it finds itself in this weekly top 5. Les Morceaux de notre vie has all the ingredients to please French viewers: soap, drama, incredible stories (well almost, since heteropaternal superfecundation does indeed exist even if it’s extremely rare) and a heroine we get attached to.

Number 4: The Coke Clans


Ana, an experienced lawyer who learned her trade in one of the best firms in Madrid, decides to turn her back on her past once and for all and settles in Cambados.

Spectator rating: 2.9/5

According to Equicine (4/5)

A taste of unfinished business. A season 2 is needed, otherwise quite a nice series that has the merit of showing the distribution side of the product rather than the production side as in Narcos. Not the best Spanish series, but can be watched

According to Luckyhalet (0.5/5)

A whiny lawyer who leaves her firm to play cop to avenge her father. And as luck would have it, she falls in love with the guy responsible for her father’s murder. A series for rom-coms to avoid.

According to Lionel33000 (3.5/5)

New Spanish police series, nothing very new but effective. Good distribution of roles with good actors. To watch for fun…

Why does it work?

The Coke Clans, continues to hang on in the Netflix top after three weeks! It seems that this “recipe” – quite typical of the platform’s Spanish productions – is the winning formula. A background of a police series based on a true story but very largely dissolved in an impossible romance, and presto, success is there! It is clearly not the credibility of the scenario that takes precedence here, but the two main actors, their alchemy and their impossible love story.

Number 5: The Bridgerton Chronicle


Penelope Featherington has finally given up on her longtime love for Colin Bridgerton after hearing him make disparaging remarks about her. However, she has decided that it is time for her to take a husband, preferably one who will give her enough independence to continue her double life as Lady Whistledown, away from her mother and sisters.

Spectator rating: 3.8/5

According to Christine D (5/5):

“That said, overall the story holds up. All the actors do it with flying colors, hats off to the actors playing Colin and Penelope, who are perfect in their performances. Recommended if you want to have a good time of romance from another age, without really racking your brains. A good moment of relaxation for sure!”

According to Flower 0478 (5/5):

“For my part, it’s season 3 that I preferred with season 1, it’s dedicated to my favorite who is Penelope, I love her character, she’s pretty, there’s a perfect chemistry between her and Colin, very beautiful romance, I finished the season quickly, I highly recommend it.”

According to Simon Bernard (3/5):

“This season 3 of ‘The Bridgerton Chronicle’ takes up the same spices that made the flavor of the first two versions: marriage, balls and gossip. The atmosphere and the settings of this season are all as (if not more?) spectacular as usual and visually the episodes are savored like guilty candies. However, by dint of playing on the same narrative arcs, we are starting to get slightly tired of the few renewals of the license. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that this will be the case in season 4. Special mention to the actress who plays Penelope, who manages to perfectly play her transition to glamour and class.”

Why does it work?

Bridgerton season 3 is a huge success for Netflix. The series has not left the top viewing figures since May 16, the release date of the first part. The second part, released on June 13, rekindled the appeal of subscribers for this series of episodes, centered on the love story between Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).

The couple inspired even more reactions from Internet users than the previous ones of the series produced by Shonda Rhimes. The public was touched by their romance, based on friendship, emotion, communication and always enjoyable twists.
