Stan: What’s New For 3 August - 9 August 2021
Lots of great shows are back, and a small, but high in quality selection of new movies, is the gist of the past week when it comes to new content on Stan.
Jean Smart stars in another great series, this time focusing on the dark mentorship between a veteran comic and her entitled 25-year-old mentee. The entire first season of the critically acclaimed HBO Max Original Series Hacks can be binged right away. Once again, our lack of a local version of HBO Max pays off for Stan.
There is also the complete first season of the new Italian series, The Split.
Shows returning with new seasons include The L Word: Generation Q (new episodes weekly), Drag Race Holland (new episodes weekly), the 2018 reboot of Charmed and no less than four season of Degrassi: The Next Generation.
As mentioned earlier, not a huge selection of new movies, but a high quality one. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was such an influential film when it was released, the term “Benjamin Button” has entered the lexicon and you know exactly what it means when people mention it. Steven Spielberg's The Color Purple is another influential and award-winning inclusion.
I must say, as a fan of biographical dramas, I did not know of the existence of this little beauty, The Great Debaters, starring the powerhouse actors Denzel Washington and Forest Whitaker. Don't know how I missed this one, but it won't be missed for too much longer.
For documentary and social justice fans, RBG looks at Ruth Bader Ginsburg's extraordinary life as a American icon of the 20th and 21st century.
