Everything coming and going on Netflix for the week of August 2nd squib
Netflix is adding 24 new shows, movies, and specials in the first full week of August.
Two original documentaries -- Connected and Immigration Nation -- look to be fascinating explorations of topics that are especially relevant in 2020.
You're on your own for the rest of the list this week.
Fair warning: August is going to be one of the stranger months Netflix has seen in recent years. Although Netflix made it clear that it banked tons of content for 2020, regardless of how the pandemic affected filming and post-production, the name brand shows and the movies with A-list talent appear to have dried up this month. That's not to say that there aren't some potential gems on the list below, I just don't know what they are.
Here is the complete list of the Netflix streaming arrivals and departures for the week of August 2nd, 2020:
In Netflix’s new documentary series Connected, science reporter and host Latif Nasser hopscotches around the planet to tease out the subtle and surprising ways that we are all inextricably linked to one another and our world.

From the microscopic to the telescopic to the kaleidoscopic, this show will make you see the world around you in a whole new way.
