We're now half way through August and I can swear it was just to beginning of 2017 not too long ago. But the new additions continue apace regardless, and there are some really good stuff this week.

For TV, other than the weekly new episodes of usual series, we have two brand new series joining the Stan stable. The high acclaimed series Black Sail is a prequel to the timeless classic 'Treasure Island', and it's well worth a watch. The first 2 seasons are available now for instant streaming. Also new is the funnily titled Swedish Dicks, which just as the title suggests, is about recently relocated Swedish private detectives (to L.A, of all places).

In Movie land, there's something for everyone. Want mindless action? Try The Mechanic. Want to that sing-a-long feel good feeling? Try Hair and Mamma Mia!.

In the "I didn't know they were in this" file for this week is not one but two movies, our own Nicole Kidman as a Russian mail order bride in Birthday Girl and The Pianist's Adrien Brody in horror mystery Backtrack.

But the real highlight of the week is something unexpected, a black-and-white animation about the Iranian revolution told through the perspective of a young, rebellious Iranian girl. So make sure you check out Persepolis.

Here's the complete list of the new additions to Stan for the week of August 8 - 14, 2017:

I'm Dying Up Here - Season 1, Ep. 10
