Everything coming and going on Netflix for the week of August 30th
Netflix is adding 45 new shows, movies, and specials as the calendar flips to September.
Some intriguing originals highlight this week, as Chef's Table returns with a BBQ-themed season and Charlie Kaufman's new movie I'm Thinking of Ending Things debuts.
We're also getting a very good James Bond movie in Casino Royale and a less good James Bond movie in Quantum of Solace this week.
It's been ages since I've watched anything new on Netflix, but that's finally going to change this week when Charlie Kaufman's latest mind-bending movie I'm Thinking of Ending Things starts streaming. This is his first live-action film since 2008's Synecdoche, New York , and early reviews have been intriguing. We're also getting a new series called Away about Hilary Swank in space, and more episodes of the beloved Chef's Table .
