Trainwreck: Woodstock '99, a three-part documentary on the music festival that ended in a riot, makes its debut on Netflix's Top 10 most popular TV shows list on Thursday, Aug. 4 after premiering on the streaming service yesterday. It's currently sitting at No. 4. It's the perfect documentary for fans of the band Bush, whose lead singer Gavin Rossdale comes off well when most other performers do not. It's the only new show on the list. The only new title on the Top 10 movies list is Clint Eastwood's based-on-true-events thriller The 15:17 to Paris, which comes in at No. 10.
