Sacha Baron Cohen Trolls Sarah Palin With Cheeky Golden Globes Request

The loudest name to hit streaming this month is none other than Sacha Baron Cohen with his buzzy new satire Who Is America? In the new series, Cohen pokes fun at several major political figures, including Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney, disguising himself, as he often does, while chatting them up and getting them into trouble. If his schtick has somehow yet to run dry for you, this is the ticket, on CraveTV.

Meanwhile, Netflix is hitting it out of the park with its original movies this month, giving you all the fluff you need to wrap up the summer with the much-anticipated Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, starring a fresh off Mamma Mia Lily James (a.k.a. one of the good things about last year’s Baby Driver), and borrowing some of The Kissing Booth‘s hype is YA rom-com To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, based off of Jenny Han’s beloved novel, and the second major romantic title out this month to feature an Asian lead (the first being Crazy Rich Asians, hitting theatres August 15).

But if it’s something a little simpler you’re after, say, in the vein of Set It Up, catch Like Father, starring the odd duo of Kristen Bell and Kelsey Grammer as, you guessed it, daughter and father (and co-starring Seth Rogen as Bell’s cruise fling, which may be reason enough to totally watch or totally skip depending on the level of desperado you are).

The fluff continues with a plethora of soapy crime procedurals and dramas hitting the airwaves, but your meatiest bets are the third season of Outlander and the second season of Ozark on Netflix.

YOUR OFF-THE-BEATEN-PATH RECOMMENDATION OF THE WEEK

Good Behaviour on CraveTV

If you’ve still got Michelle Dockery’s Lady Mary Crawley poshly sauntering around in your head, it’s time to let the actress’s latest character, Good Behavior’s Letty Raines, walk in and stomp all over her. A thief and a con artist fresh out of prison, Letty attempts to derail a hitman’s hit, only to find herself embroiled in a messy affair with the killer — and the law. Just two seasons in, it’s a trashy treat and also happens to feature the great Ann Dowd as the FBI agent on the case, natch.
