Toni Collette continues to rake in positive reviews as a secretly-badass mum in Pieces of Her: the top show on Netflix ATM. Unfortunately, her poor daughter isn’t getting the same love online, with many…many…commenters pointing out how hopeless the character is.

Dysfunctional families took over the top two Netflix spots, in fact, with the final season of Shameless finally available for Aussies to watch. Households around the country are really going to miss the Gallagher clan, it seems :(

Inventing Anna and Vikings: Valhalla are staying strong on the list, with viewers getting to end of their binge seshes—whether they’re into true crime high-society scams or true history bearded-up battles. If you’re still in two minds about getting into either show, read our review of Inventing Anna here and Valhalla right here: both have their fascinating moments, amidst some padded-out character drama.

New Netflix original The Weekend Away has also crept onto screens, starring Leighton Meester as a woman accused of murder while on a BFF getaway in Croatia. As the comment below notes, Netflix has definitely been reaping the benefits of making its viewers horribly paranoid about the outside world: all the better reason to stay indoors and watch more Netflix.

Add Worst Roommate Ever onto that list, with its first season telling four separate stories of nightmare roomies. Might be a good one to throw on if you want to passive-aggressively force your own housemates to do their damn dishes??

Reality dating disaster Love is Blind season 2 keeps shamefully dragging us back for more, with that saucy reunion episode keeping the title in the top 10 and giving us all the secondhand cringe we could ask for. The best bit was probably seeing everybody physically react whenever spurned veterinarian Shake tried to chime in with his much-needed opinions:

Manifest is back in the top 10, boarding a new batch of mystery addicts. We don’t know yet when the anticipated fourth and final season will drop on Netflix, but the team behind this thrilling series have known how it all ends for a while now—since November of last year, to be precise.

Ben Affleck’s 2010 bank robber drama The Town is painting the town Netflix-red, rounding out the bottom of the list along with Spanish series Lies and Deceit. Both titles involve a lot of lying and deceiving, to be honest, but only the latter has Twitter users too freaked out about the tension of the central sexual assault mystery to even make it to the end.
