In a quiet week on Netflix, Cobra Kai Season 5 held the #1 spot on the streaming service’s weekly Global Top 10 list for September 12-18, Netflix announced yesterday. It’s been #1 for two weeks and is back at #1 on the daily top 10 charts on Wednesday 21 September. But it could be overtaken tomorrow by Ryan Murphy’s Jeffrey Dahmer limited series, directed by Evan Peters, which releases today. On the movie side, the Minions continue to dominate, with the Despicable Me franchise that occupies three of the 10 spots on the list.

But popular doesn’t necessarily mean good. Below we list the top 10 movies and shows on Netflix and give a brief assessment of whether they are really worth watching or not. We also added what’s new on Netflix today so you can find out what’s on tomorrow’s top 10 list.

New Netflix shows and movies today

  • Dahmer – Monsters: The Story of Jeffrey Dahmer: Four years after his Netflix deal, Ryan Murphy is finally making the kind of show Netflix was hoping for when they hired him with this limited series about notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer (Evan Peters) that focuses on his victims.
  • Design Miami: A workplace reality series about Miami’s two hottest interior designers who happen to be married.
  • Fortune Seller: A TV Scam: Italian scammer documentaries about two women who became the country’s leading TV shopping personalities until they took it too far.

  • The perfumer: This is how Netflix describes this German film: “To regain her sense of smell and get her lover back, a detective teams up with a perfume maker who uses deadly methods to create the perfect scent.” Sweet!
