The best TV shows and movies on Netflix in November 2020

Based on Netflix’s Top 10 as of Tuesday, November 17th

1. The crown

For fans of: Palace intrigue, the royals | It is good?: It’s the best season so far

The ambitious, decade-long drama series about Queen Elizabeth II is back in season two with Olivia Colman at the helm and season four overall, adding two major characters to the mix: Margaret Thatcher (the great Gillian Anderson) and Princess Diana (Emma Corrin ), both of which clash with the queen. Her addition breathes new life into the series that remains one of the greatest on television. (Rank yesterday: 1)

2. The Queen’s Gambit

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

Budding superstar Anya Taylor-Joy (she was cast as Young Furiosa in the next Mad Max movie) stars in this literary adaptation as Beth Harmon, a brilliant but troubled chess master in Kentucky in the 1950s. She was an orphan who developed an incredible skill for gaming in her teens, but also a debilitating addiction to pills that calmed her obsessed mind. It’s a detailed character study of brilliance and madness that is usually reserved for male characters. It comes from one of Netflix’s limited series producers, Godless’ Scott Frank. (Rank yesterday: 2)

3. Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2

For fans of: Children’s book adaptations, Bill Hader | Is it Well?: Not as good as the first cloudy, but still pretty good

The mythology of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs is too complicated to simply jump in and see this without seeing the first. You won’t understand how food falls from the sky because of … science. Just kidding, this movie is fun for the whole family, no explanation required. (Rank yesterday: n / a)

4. Jingle Jangle: A Christmas journey

For fans of: Christmas, musicals, Christmas musicals | Is it Well?: It’s pretty adorable

Legendary toy maker Jeronicus Jangle (Forest Whitaker) loses everything after being betrayed by his friend (Keegan-Michael Key) who steals his most precious creation. Jangle’s granddaughter (Madalen Mills) sets off on a vacation adventure with the help of a long-forgotten invention to get her back. There’s music, dancing, roughly a million celebrity cameos, and loads of Christmas cheer when you get in the market for it. (Rank yesterday: 3)

5. The Grinch

For fans of: Spoilsport | It is good?: It’s good

Benedict Cumberbatch speaks to Dr. Seuss’ legendary green man who learns to love Christmas. You know the story and this CG customization doesn’t add much to it. But it doesn’t distract from it either. It’s better than the Jim Carrey version, but not as good as the original version. (Rank yesterday: 4)

6. Cocomelon

For fans of: Singalongs, nursery rhymes | Is it Well?: Small children love the Coco

Cocomelon, a multi-platform children’s television phenomenon, is consistently in the Netflix top 10 as new content is added all the time. Preschoolers love it and parents hear the songs in their sleep. (Rank yesterday: 9)

7. American horror story

For fans of: Ryan Murphy, frequent pop culture references | It is good?: Some seasons are better than others

Season 9 of Ryan Murphy’s horror anthology series was recently released on Netflix. 1984 is set in a summer camp and pays homage to the slasher films of the 80s. If you’re already a fan of American Horror Story, you’ll be delighted to hear that the nostalgic backdrop “was the perfect setup for the signature one-liners and pop culture references” the show became known for. If you’re not a fan yet, 1984 might not be the best season, but it’s still fun. (Rank yesterday: 6)

8th. Attempt 4

For fans of: justice | Is it Well?: Yes, and it makes you angry too

These limited documentaries tell the story of Sean Ellis, a black man who was wrongly convicted of the murder of a white Boston police officer. The current documentary deals with corruption and racism of the police in the judiciary. When you deal with injustice, you get sick. (Yesterday Rank: 5)

9. Hometown vacation

For fans of: Hallmark Christmas Movies | Is it good ?: If I were Australian I would say “Nor”

A big-town talent agent (or something) returns to his small town and falls in love with a small-town girl. You should only watch this if you run out of Hallmark films to watch as this is far worse. If your quality is sub-Hallmark you are in trouble. The leading actress is called Sarah Troyer and I imagine she is Verne Troyer’s daughter. (Rank yesterday: n / a)

10. Dash & Lily

For fans of: New York City at Christmas time, bookstores | Is it Well?: It’s totally charming

Dash (Austin Abrams) and Lily (Midori Francis) court each other by taking notes in a secret book at Manhattan’s famous beach bookstore that widen the comfort zone. It’s cute and will put you in a happy mood. [TV Guide review] (Rank yesterday: 10)
