• Netflix is adding 20 new shows, movies, and specials in the third week of July.
  • There are plenty of Netflix originals returning and debuting this week, but my top recommendation of the week has to be The Last Dance, which already aired on ESPN, but is one of the most entertaining sports documentaries I’ve ever seen. Watch it even if you don’t care about basketball.
  • Inglourious Basterds and Ex Machina are both leaving this week if you want to finally watch either.

A bunch of Netflix originals are returning or debuting this week, including How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast), Norsemen, Street Food, and Love on the Spectrum, but the show I’m most excited to see joining the streaming library is The Last Dance. This 10-part Michael Jordan docuseries is throughout entertaining for its entire run time, even if you don’t care about Michael Jordan, the Chicago Bulls, or the NBA. Put it in your queue if you haven’t seen it.

Here is the complete list of the Netflix streaming arrivals and departures for the week of July 19th, 2020:

Arrivals

Sunday, July 19th

  • The Last Dance
    • In the fall of 1997, Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls began their quest to win a sixth NBA title in eight years. But despite all Jordan had achieved since his sensational debut 13 years earlier, “The Last Dance,” as coach Phil Jackson called it, would be shadowed by tension with the club’s front office and the overwhelming sense that this was the last time the world would ever see the greatest player of all time, and his extraordinary teammates, in full flight.
