While Amazon has plenty of original series in August, no new films means your going to have to rely on their selection of popular oldies.

Sigh. Maybe next month.

If you’re excited about the prospect of seeing content like Amazon Studio’s feature The Big Sick, which is currently tearing up the box office, you’re going to have to wait.  In August, Amazon Prime is set to deliver four new series, including one project we covered during our Pilot Season review: The Tick.  Compared to Netflix, Amazon’s approach to releasing in-house films is certainly more measured.  Here’s hoping that they can continue with the high quality while ramping up production.  At least we get both Bill & Ted movies to tide us over!

Original Series.

  • Comrade Detective – Season 1 (8/1)

  • Lost in Oz – Season 1  (8/1)
  • Tumble Leaf – Season 3 (8/15)
  • The Tick – Season 1 (8/25)

Our Pick:  Comrade Detective

Sure. Whatever.

Channing Tatum is gifted a contraband collection of VHS from Romania featuring a communist detective drama.  He and others set about dubbing it into English…with less than perfect knowledge of what the original sounded like.

What a weird series.  The premise is bizarre but played perfectly straight, which makes the crazy dialogue and visuals of the “forgotten” cop drama that much more surreal.  I’m not sure it can sustain that tone for multiple seasons, but I’m willing to get in on the ground floor with this goofball.
