Everything Added to Netflix USA This Week (23rd August 2019)

Another week has passed and, in case you missed our social media feeds, we’re here to give you the run down on this week’s additions just in time for your weekend binge sessions. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to the streaming service in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix USA:

It has been a very quiet week on Netflix this week but there are still some great new additions worthy of your time. For films we have the return of Gangs of New York which is set in the crime-ridden slums of New York in the 1860s where vengeful orphan Amsterdam Vallon joins the cutthroat gang of his father’s killer, Bill the Butcher. is an animated surreal drama where actress Robin Wright plays herself as a film star who agrees to have her digital image recorded for reuse in future films. Speaking of surreal: Mayday Life is a Taiwanese musical superhero film that tells the story of Mayday’s Life Tour concert unfolding as five fading superheroes are summoned to save the world from an extraterrestrial enemy that detests sound. 2004 action film The Punisher, based on the Marvel comics, has also been added back to Netflix USA this week.

British stand-up comic Simon Amstell also has a new comedy special available that is well worth a watch: Simon Amstell: Set Free.

If you like documentaries then you may be interested in American Factory which is the Obamas first release for Netflix and tells the story of a shuttered American factory gets reopened by a Chines company but there is a clash of cultures. There is also an interview with the Obamas about the documentary with American Factory: A Conversation with the Obamas.

For TV this week on Netflix UK there are a number of great additions. The third season of 13 Reasons Why has arrived and asks the question of “who killed footballer Bryce Johnson?”. Hyperdrive is a new Original series that essentially sends car drivers on specially created obstacle courses – it’s like Fast & Furious but in real life. Anime fans will enjoy season 2 of HERO MASK (or technically HERO≠MASK).
