The Netflix Top 10 list won’t tell you how many people are watching what show, but it will tell you which shows people are watching the most. The Netflix Top 10 list for Wednesday, November 4 is almost the same as it was yesterday, with the top 6 titles unchanged. The new arrivals are a pair of not-new movies, Mile 22 at No. 7 and Snowden at No. 8, which knocked new movie His House off the list.

But of the Netflix Top 10, which of these shows and movies are actually worth watching? We break down the entire Netflix Top 10 list and guide you through what to binge and what to skip.

The Best TV Shows and Movies on Netflix in November 2020

Based on Netflix’s Top 10 from Wednesday, Nov. 4


1. The Queen’s Gambit


For fans of: Chess, drugs, and character drama | Is it good?: It’s one of the best shows of the year

Future superstar Anya Taylor-Joy (she’s been cast as young Furiosa in the next Mad Max movie) stars in this literary adaptation as Beth Harmon, a brilliant but troubled chess champion in 1950s Kentucky. She was an orphan who, in her youth, developed an incredible skill for the game but also a debilitating addiction to pills, which quiet her obsessive mind. It’s a detailed character study of brilliance and madness that’s usually reserved for male characters. It comes from one of Netflix’s go-to limited series producers, Godless‘ Scott Frank(Yesterday’s rank: 1)


2. Holidate


For fans of: Crude and formulaic holiday-themed rom-coms | Is it good?: Not even by the standards of the genre

The title makes this seem like a Christmas rom-com, but it’s not. It’s every holiday. Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey play single people who make a deal to be each other’s dates to holiday parties, therefore avoiding awkward conversations about why they’re still single. Guess what happens. It’s a raunchy and retrograde bummer. (Yesterday’s rank: 2)


3. Knock Knock


For fans of: Keanu Reeves, straight-to-video erotic thrillers | Is it good?: Not exactly
