Both lists are unchanged from yesterday
Lili Reinhart and David Corenswet, Look Both Ways
It’s very rare that both of Netflix’s Top 10 lists are the same two days in a row, but it does happen. Today, Wednesday, Aug. 24, is one of those days. The top movie is Look Both Ways, the top show is Echoes, and everything behind those titles is the same, too. The list will look a lot different tomorrow, though, because there are a lot of new releases today, including the premiere of Selling the OC, a spin-off of Selling Sunset, one of Netflix’s most popular reality shows. 
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.
