The only new title on either of Netflix’s top 10 TV shows and movies lists on Wednesday, Nov. 16 is R.I.P.D. 2: Rise of the Damned, an unexpected sequel to 2013’s box office bomb R.I.P.D. The genre-hopping supernatural Western comedy was barely announced before it showed up on Netflix yesterday, and now it’s all the way up to No. 3 on Netflix’s movies list. It stars Jeffrey Donovan, who’s always a charming presence, and he makes it pretty fun to watch. The Crown is at No. 1 on the TV chart. 

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.
