Now Playing: August 2019 Streaming Recommendations: Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, And Shudder

Are you looking for something new to watch on Netflix this week? You're not alone, as the millions of subscribers to the streaming giant are also trying to figure out what's worth their time. Each week, services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and Shudder release new content for its subscribers, and this week, Netflix has a few movies and TV shows that you'll want to watch.

Returning for Season 3 on Friday is the dramatic-comedy series about women wrestlers, GLOW. While the latest season was enjoyable, it did depart from previous seasons. "The latest offering of Netflix's comedic drama feels less fun than previous seasons," I said in my review of GLOW Season 3. "Tonally, it's much more serious, dealing with these character's life-altering problems rather than the goofiness of trying to figure out what professional wrestling is or putting on an entertaining show. The show steps away from actual wrestling, even when wrestling is a daily event for these women, which is a strange choice."

If you're looking for something from your childhood, revived for the modern age, then you're probably pretty excited for Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling, which is also arriving on Friday. For this Netflix special, Rocko and his friends have been trapped in space for 20 years and return to O-Town, where technology has vastly improved. From there, Rocko tries to get his favorite show, The Fatheads, back on the air. The trailer for the upcoming special is hilarious.
