Even after a whole weekend, Wednesday is still sitting firmly at the top of the Netflix Top 10 TV Shows list on Monday, Dec. 5. A new season of the so-bad-it’s-good drama series Firefly Lane couldn’t dethrone it, coming in at No. 2. Things are more interesting over on the movies chart, which is filled with a bunch of new stuff, like the recently-released star-studded action movie Bullet Train at No. 1, the crazy good Norwegian movie Troll at No. 2, and the romantic period piece Lady Chatterly’s Lover at No. 3. 

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.
