Netflix knows how to provide entertainment that makes us stick to our screens, and the last two releases in these categories are rocking. “The Mother,” a Jennifer Lopez action thriller, has skyrocketed to become one of Netflix’s all-time most-watched films.
In contrast, “Queen Charlotte: The TV series “A Bridgerton’s Story” may not have placed in the top film listing but certainly holds its throne among TV series. Let’s jump into these streaming phenomena.

In the event that you don’t know about “The Mother,” brace yourself for great revelation. This thriller was the biggest Netflix binge since its premiere on Mother’s Day weekend. Imagine this: for the fourth week in a row, it led the most-watched film on the platform with a shocking 16.48 million hours viewed during the week of May 29 to June 4. The total tally? 229.30 million hours viewed, and it comes eighth in Netflix’s Most Popular English Film List.
Now, here’s the kicker– “The Mother” is on the way up! Its 28-day premiere measurement window runs up to June 11, and it is approaching to its nearest rivals. Watch out “Extraction,” with 231.3 million views, and “The Adam project,” with 233.2 million views.
However, Mother is not the only star that is shining in the film universe of Netflix. Joining it on the English-language list were other cinematic gems like “The Boss Baby,” “Missing,” “2 Hearts,” “Shooter,” “We’re the Millers,” “Dirty Grandpa,” “To Leslie,” “The Choice,” and “F9: The Fast Saga.”
While there is much buzz surrounding the film “The Mother,” its TV counterpart, “Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story,” seems to be capturing audience hearts. Even after the 28-day premiere measurement period ended on June 1st, this Bridgerton prequel series continues to hold strong. In its fifth week, it remains a prominent presence among Netflix’s Top 10 English-language shows, claiming the fourth spot with an impressive 27.2 million hours watched.
In total, “Queen Charlotte” made almost 459 million hours viewed in the opening week, and this is only from June 2 to 4. The longevity of Bridgerton as a brand and its success proves this point. In other words, another Shonda Rhimes hit, “Inventing Anna,” is in tenth place with 511 million viewing hours. “Queen Charlotte” remains impressive because it has just six episodes, and all the series on the all-time most popular list have at least eight episodes, including both seasons of “Bridgerton.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “FUBAR” continued to lead with 88.03 million hours viewed as well. Without any hesitation, FUBAR can be crowned as the king of TV. In second came the final episodes of “Manifest,” with 39.4 million hours watched.
On the other hand, “To All The Boys: XO, Kitty” came in third with 29.8 million hours watched. Season 6 of “Selling Sunset” and season 2 of “Firefly Lane” both returned to the Top 10 to the delight of their fans. Two newcomers, “The Ultimatum: Love is queer,” Season 2 of “Barbeque Showdown” also found their places on the list.
To sum up, Netflix does not disappoint, as “The Mother” conquers the cinemas and “Queen Charlotte” takes the throne on TV. Netflix being the favorite streaming platform for all our desires is not surprising, given its wide and engaging content. So, get your popcorn ready, and let’s sit back for the movie on Netflix!
