Arden Cho’s Partner Track is climbing the TV chart
Arden Cho, Partner Track
Is the new Arden Cho-led Shonda-esque lawyer drama Partner Track good? No, it’s not. But it is at No. 2 on Netflix’s Top 10 TV Shows list today, Monday, Aug. 29, and that’s a win in itself. New on the TV chart today is Alchemy of Souls, a Korean period drama about mages and ancient spells, coming in at No. 10. Over on the movies chart, the truly abysmal Mark Wahlberg-Kevin Hart buddy comedy Me Time comes in at No. 1. It’s bleak out here.
But 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. If you’re looking for more Netflix recommendations, we’ve compiled the best movies on Netflix and the best TV shows on Netflix.
