For the first time since its release in September, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Amazon Prime Video's pricey adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy novels, has fallen out of the Prime Video's Top 10 Shows and Movies list. And to make things worse for Middle-earth, it was knocked out by one of its chief rivals: Game of Thrones' Daenerys Targaryen. Emilia Clarke's 2021 thriller Above Suspicion snuck into the No. 10 spot, heating up the battle between the fantasy franchise titans. This is almost like that time when the Harry & Meghan documentary knocked The Crown out of Netflix's Top 10! Drama! Everything else stayed put, including Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan at No. 1. 

The most popular movies and shows on Amazon Prime Video are below, but we'll also chime in on whether or not they're worth watching. Just because people are watching something, that doesn't always mean it's good, right? And to help you plan what you'll watch next, we've added the new shows and movies coming to Prime Video, too.
