The Best TV Shows and Movies on Netflix in January 2021

Based on Netflix's Top 10 from Tuesday, Jan. 26


1. Fate: The Winx Saga

For fans of: Teens who do magic, fantastical boarding schools | Is it good?: It's not the most memorable show, but it's an easy watch

Based on the Nickelodeon series Winx Club, a group of teenagers (who are also fairies) attend a magical boarding school in order to help them learn and harness their powers. Rivalry and romance ensue, as one would expect. (Yesterday's rank: 1)


2. Homefront

For fans of: Jason Statham, people punching each other | Is it good?: The plot's been done plenty of times, but Statham is just so good as an action movie hero

Jason Statham plays a gravelly-voiced, hat-wearing ex-DEA agent who moves to a small town with his daughter, but he quickly finds himself involved in a drug trafficking ring. As one YouTube commenter puts it, "Jason Statham in his usual kick ass and kill bad guys form. Love it, never goes out of style." (Yesterday's rank: 2)


3. Bridgerton

For fans of: Period pieces, a lot of sex scenes | Is it good?: It's a very fun watch that will keep you hooked

Produced by Shonda Rhimes, this period piece follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) through her first season out in London society and her rollercoaster journey of falling in love with a reluctant duke (Rege-Jean Page). It's like if Pride and Prejudice met Gossip Girl met Scandal, all in one show. (Yesterday's rank: 3)


4. The Next Three Days

For fans of: Russell Crowe, breaking people out of prison | Is it good?: It's pretty mediocre

Russell Crowe plays a man on a mission to break his wife (Elizabeth Banks), a murder suspect, out of prison. This movie has everything -- helicopter chase scenes, a Liam Neeson cameo -- and yet it's still nothing special. It's a remake of Pour elle, a French movie starring Diane Kruger, and you might be better off just watching that. (Yesterday's rank: n/a)

5. Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer

For fans of: True crime, feeling unsettled | Is it good?: If you're into crime docuseries, this is a must

It's Los Angeles in 1985, and a relentless serial killer who only strikes at night is terrorizing the city. That's the premise for Night Stalker, and this docuseries traces his crimes and focuses on the two detectives who set out to catch him. It's riveting, it's scary, and it's only four episodes long. (Yesterday's rank: 4)

For fans of: Teen superheroes, hijinks | Is it good?: Definitely, if you're a kid

This show dares to ask the question, "What if kids were superheroes?" Henry Danger centers around a 13-year-old boy who lands a job as a sidekick to a well-known superhero who lives in his town. (Yesterday's rank: 7)

7. Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

For fans of: Dinosaurs, kids saving the day | Is it good?: It's pretty cute

This animated series, which takes place before, during, and after the events of the Chris Pratt-starring film Jurassic World, follows a group of teenagers who go to visit a dinosaur adventure camp, only to find themselves stranded without help once the dinos break free and start wreaking havoc. (Yesterday's rank: 9)

"For fans of: Being inspired, good singers | Is it good?: If you like your TV feel-good and emotional, this is the show for you

10. The Vanished

For fans of: Asking "what?" over and over, Anne Heche | Is it good?: Not really
