Giancarlo Esposito, Kaleidoscope
While you lounged around in your new pajamas and watched bad Christmas movies, Netflix had a busy holiday break, pumping out tons of new releases that have made it onto the Netflix Top 10 Movies and Shows lists. The most-watched show of the new year goes to Kaleidoscope, a heist drama with a tempting gimmick: You can watch the episodes in any order (but let’s be real: hitting "watch next episode" is still the easiest, and that’s what we’ll all do). Other shows new to the list since we last checked in include the spy thriller Treason, the Korean drama The Glory, and Ginny & Georgia, which people are watching in anticipation of Season 2. On the movies list, it’s no surprise that Glass Onion is No. 1, followed by Noah Baumbach’s perplexing White Noise and the family film Matilda: The Musical
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.
