So, what’s everyone been watching this week? Hmmmm?

Just to get a sense of what everyone’s streaming, we’ve used data from streaming aggregator Reelgood, which gathers viewership numbers from hundreds of streaming services in the U.S. and UK. Each week, the most streamed TV shows and movies come down to a few elements — sheer buzz, a big finale, smart marketing, star power, critical acclaim, or word-of-mouth that leads uninterested people to finally watch it out of spite.

This week, it’s all about House of the Dragon. The Game of Thrones prequel shot to the top of our list, surprising nobody after a massive premiere. Marvel’s She-Hulk: Attorney At Law also had a strong debut. Other newcomers to the list include horror films like Orphan: First Kill and The Black Phone.

But just because a lot of people are watching something doesn’t make it…good. Here they are, the 10 most streamed TV shows and movies of the week, where to watch them, and what Mashable critics thought.
