Here are all the TV shows, documentaries, and films set to arrive on Netflix Australia in August.

As I so bravely declared in my roundup of everything heading to Stan in August, next month is dedicated to comfort watching. I’ve realized I’ve spent every evening of the last month of lockdown forlornly flopping around my apartment, marinating in the misery of not dedicating every waking moment of my life to “bettering myself.” Instead of actually engaging with (BORING !!!) intellectual art, I’ve just been indulging in misery.

It’s high time I give up the ruse. This lockdown is NOT for self-betterment, it is for REGRESSION! Pack away the yoga mats ladies, for the next four weeks we’re eating 1kg Yumi’s hummus out of the tub with our bare hands.

There’s so much TRASH to gnaw our way through on Netflix this month, including a new cooking show starring Paris Hilton??? Cooking With Paris will debut on August 4th. Here’s the premise, straight from the horses mouth:

“With the help of her celebrity friends, TV personality Paris Hilton navigates new ingredients, new recipes and exotic kitchen appliances, going from the grocery store to the finished table spread.” It’s going to be hot shit.

There’s also a bunch of enduring comfort classics that’ll have you feeling all gooey. All The Matrix flicks will arrive August 1st, alongside the two Spy Kids films that actually matter. Check out a full list of everything coming to Netflix in August below. For more on this topic, follow our Film & TV Observer.
