Both of Netflix’s top 10 lists have new No. 1s on Nov. 2, which doesn’t often happen. On the TV shows list, British psychological thriller Inside Man has claimed the top spot, while on the movies list, animated family movie The Bad Guys has debuted at No. 1, which we expected it would after it arrived on Netflix yesterday. It was a box office hit, and box office hits always perform well on streaming, too. No. 2 on the movies list is The Good Nurse, which means one of the top two spots is “Bad” and the the other is “Good.” Also of note: Dahmer — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story has slide out of the top 10. It’s the first time Dahmer hasn’t been on the list since it premiered on Sept. 21.

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.
