What to watch August 2019
Are you looking for your next binge to the fill the empty void in you life? We’ve got you covered with a couple of our favourite watches for the month.
The Handmaids Tale | Lightbox / Hulu (3 Seasons)
Season three of the Handmaid’s Tale is finally here, it’s a grime dystopian future that at times feels a little too real. It’s not for the feint of heart, but guaranteed to be a popular topic around the water-cooler. Blessed be the fruit.
Kim’s Convenience | Netflix (3 Seasons)
Kim’s Convenience is not the type of show I expected to fall in love with, but it’s the perfect little wholesome palette cleanser between shows like the Handmaid’s Tale. By the end you’ll be highly invested in the Kim’s and there are some great long-term laughs that will keep you coming back for more. A little insider tip, the trailer does this show no justice, do yourself a favour and watch the first episode before you make any decisions.
Money Heist | Netflix (3 Seasons)
An extremely well planned money heist, what’s not to love! The biggest choice to make here is, are you watching with the subtitles or the English dub, either way. it’s a fantastic adventure from start to finish and our thieves play a cat and mouse game with the Spanish police.
The Boys | Amazon Prime (1 Season)
Have you ever wondered what happens when a superhero smashes through the side of a building? Well, The Boys takes you into the nitty-gritty darker side of being a hero. The Boys was developed from Garth Ennis’s graphic novel of the same name and is a fantastic, dark and brutal journey into the realities of being a hero.
Hanna | Amazon Prime (1 Season)
I’m not quite sure how to describe Hanna, it’s part Jason Bourne, part coming of age story about a young woman raised in the woods by her CIA Black-Ops father. Until now, her father is the only contact she’s had with the outside world, but that’s all about the change. Basically the government want her back, and she’s not having a bar of it.
