happy Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan Season 3 Eve! I hope you left some milk and cookies out for John Krasinski before he did a tactical breach of your chimney. It’s pretty remarkable that Jack Ryan is No. 2 on Amazon Prime Video’s Top 10 Shows and Movies list the day before the new season comes out, especially since each season is so self-contained that rewatching the previous season does little to get you prepared for the next season, but what do I know ? I just looked at lists of popular shows. I think we can all assume that Jack Ryan will be No. 1 tomorrow, dethroning the mystery drama Three Pines from its week and a half stay at the top. The only new entry on the chart is About Fate, a rom-com starring Emma Roberts and Thomas Mann as people who love love but can’t find it… except in each other! Aww.

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 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.
