New Year, New Amsterdam. NBC’s popular medical drama is the latest broadcast show to get the Netflix bump. The first two seasons were added to Netflix yesterday, and the show is at No. 6 on streamers’ top 10 list today, Wednesday, January 4. The show stars Ryan Eggold as Max Goodwin, an inspirational director of New Amsterdam Medical Center, New York’s oldest hospital. The show is set to end after five seasons, with the finale airing on NBC on January 17, so its addition to Netflix means it’s gearing up for a second streaming life. Today’s #1 show is still Kaleidoscope (in what order did you watch it?), and the #1 movie is still Glass Onion (did you see the twist coming?). And The Witcher: Origin of Blood slipped from the list less than two weeks after its release, a disappointing result for the spin-off prequel that Netflix had high hopes for.

But as we all know, popular does not necessarily mean good. Below we list the top 10 movies and shows on Netflix and give our quick opinion on whether they are really worth watching or not. We’ve also added what’s new on Netflix today so you can find out what’s making the top 10 list tomorrow.
