Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne both have Oscars, so it shouldn’t surprise you to learn they’re both great in The Good Nurse, the new Netflix medical crime drama adapted from the true story of a serial killer nurse. That’s at No. 1 on today’s Top 10 Movies list, and the only new addition to the ranking since yesterday. Over on the Top 10 TV Shows list, love is blind Season 3 just dropped a handful of new episodes, which means that it jumped ahead of everything else and now sits at No. 1, knocking The Watcher down to No. 2.

But as we all know, popular doesn’t necessarily mean good. Below, we list the top 10 movies and shows on Netflix and give our quick take on whether they’re actually worth watching or not. We’ve also added what’s new on Netflix today so you can find out what will be on the Top 10 list tomorrow.
