Our Universe

Netflix

There’s only one new title on either of Netflix’s Top 10 lists of movies and shows on Wednesday, Nov. 23: Our Universe, a Morgan Freeman-narrated nature documentary series that explores how everything from the birth of the Sun to the birth of sea turtles is connected. It’s at No. 7 on the TV list today. 1899 is still the No. 1 show, and Slumberland is still the No. 1 movie. The list will be shaken up tomorrow with the arrival of Wednesday, which was released today, but we won’t be around to document where it lands. Happy Thanksgiving!

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.

New Netflix Shows and Movies Today – Highlights

  • The Boxtrolls: Very neat stop-motion animated family film from 2014.
  • Christmas on Mistletoe Farm: A British version of a Hallmark-style Christmas movie. 
  • Wednesday: Tim Burton’s TV take on the iconic Addams Family character.
