Summer is winding down which means so is a lot of our free time. August is our last real chance to knock out a few series or catch a couple of movies with friends or solo in the comfort of your own living room.

Are you still avoiding the latest season of Orange Is The New Black? Now is the time to sit down, despite all the spoilers you may have already encountered, and indulge on the prison drama. Better yet, how many of your friends have already moved on to new Netflix fare like Stranger Things? You don’t want to be that person who has to exit the group chat because of you haven’t seen anything yet. You also don’t want to miss your chance to stroll down memory lane with movies like The Fast and The Furious. I mean who doesn’t want to see Ja Rule racing cars alongside the late Paul Walker?

If you're one of those serial binge watchers and conquered all of your Netflix to-do list don’t worry. There is plenty of new stuff rolling out like Baz Luhrmann’s The Get Down and The Little Prince to keep you entertained until the end of summer. Bottom line is, the world is your oyster for the next 31 days.

Here is everything coming to and leaving Netflix in August.

Staff Picks

Maz Jobrani: I’m Not A Terrorist But I’ve Played One on TV (Coming to Netflix)
Director: Maz Jobrani

Comedian Maz Jobrani has followed up his bestselling book of the same name with an equally compelling comedy special. On the stage of Los Angeles’ Wiltern Theate, Jobrani tackles various political and social issues, alongside stories about his family. He uses his hilarious anecdotes to show that as Americans we’re not as different from each other as we like to think. It’ll also inspire others to take a moment to think on issues they normally wouldn’t such as the very real life effects of social media and the impact of racial profiling.


The State of Marriage (Coming to Netflix)
Director: Jeff Kaufman

Mary Bonauto and two lawyers from Vermont came together to change history in America. This documentary covers the span of a two-decade long fight for the marriage equality movement. In eye opening scenes, viewers come face to face with the extreme adversity people from the LGBT community have faced for wanting the same rights as everybody else. Even with extreme pushback, Vermont still became the first state to grant same sex couples legal recognition and the first state to legalize marriage equality. Jeff Kaufman does a great job at providing context for a lot of the LGBT community’s grievances with the American legal system.
