For fans of: Network dramas to stream | It is good?: It’s Peak Dad TV

Netflix doesn’t do a lot of network-style drama, so this legal drama from prolific writer-producer David E. Kelley stands out. Long before he became Big little lies Guy Kelley used to dominate the lawyers on TV LA law, The exercise, Ally McBealand Boston Legal, among other. This is his return to the genre. The Lincoln Attorney is based on a best-selling novel series by Michael Connelly, who also owns Det.

He was previously played by Matthew McConaughey in the popular 2011 film of the same name. (Yesterday’s rank: 1)

For fans of: Adults in high school, comas | It is good?: Nope

Rebel Wilson is back! did you miss her Well, anyway, here’s a movie where she plays a cheerleader who falls into a 20-year coma and wakes up as a 37-year-old woman, ready to graduate from high school. You’d think they’d have it done online or something, but then we wouldn’t have this film, would we? It’s a pretty big stinker, but Sam Richardson is in it, and I love seeing him in stuff. (Yesterday’s rank: 2)

For fans of: People stuck in one place with no way of getting out, but in a fun way | It is good?: It’s not as good as in Season 1

It kind of seems The circle just premiered its third season, but in any case it’s already back for a fourth. Netflix’s competition series follows contestants who are confined to their own rooms in an apartment complex and can only communicate with each other via social media. There’s tons of catfishing, tons of poorly kept secrets, and tons of cheesy hashtags. Also this season, Baby Spice and Scary Spice compete under their own catfish profile. Sure, why not? New episodes are released weekly. (Yesterday’s rank: 10)

For fans of: The color blue, money laundering | It is good?: It’s the perfect show for people who love this kind of show

For fans of: The inner workings of the exorbitantly rich, expensive clothes | It is good?: It is a must-read for any reality TV fan

This reality show, now in its second season, is billed as real life Crazy rich Asians, which isn’t a far-fetched description, except that it doesn’t take center stage with a heartwarming love story. The cast is indeed crazy, rich, and Asian-American, making this a Bravo-style show full of excess and drama. (Yesterday’s rank: 5)


7. Kat Williams: Third World War

For fans of: Katt Williams when famous people talk about COVID | It is good?: If you’re a fan of Williams’ whole thing, you’ll love it

He also shares his thoughts on Joe Biden, America’s history with drugs, and Taco Bell. (Yesterday’s rank: 4)

For fans of: 23and I, wicked doctors | It is good?: It’s so disturbing

Netflix produces true crime documentaries faster than you can even say “true crime,” though Our father is particularly chilled, in a Rosemary’s baby sort of. It all starts with a woman taking a DNA test, which tells her that she has dozens of half-siblings and that they are all actually the children of a fertility doctor who has spent years secretly treating patients with his own to impregnate sperm. Gross and terrifying. (Yesterday’s rank: 6)

For fans of: When normal people get involved with the cartel, but not with one breaking Bad path | It is good?: Nope
