Winter is nearly over, and it can't come sooner enough for most. But whether it's winter or spring, or summer or autumn, Stan will always continue to bring you new content week after week.

For this week though, there is one new TV series and a comedy special, apart from the usual weekly additions. Stan's original Australian series The Other Guy stars local comedy talent Matt Okine as AJ Amon, a successful radio host who finds himself back in the unpredictable dating scene for the first time in a decade, following the break up with his unfaithful girlfriend. The complete first season is available straight away for instant streaming.

Not Today Bianca is Bianca del Rio's comedy special filmed last year by the American actor and drag queen. It's funny stuff, so check it out.

The movie highlights this week is a bit all over the place, but I guess this means there'll be something regardless of your mood. If you're after a good cry, then infamous tearjerker My Sister's Keeper is a good start.

A wonderful cast is present in Igby Goes Down, a coming of age comedy/drama excellently directed by Burr Steers (who went on to direct the fairly average 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies').

The screen translation of Dickens's Nicholas Nickleby stars a young Charlie Hunnam, before he went all bikie and robot-controlling-hero by coming to Hollywood.

And finally, Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. I don't think I need to say more other than to say that if you've ever wanted to find out what a "Bottomless Party" is, you'll definitely find out after watching this movie.

Here's the complete list of the new additions to Stan for the week of August 14 - 21, 2017:
