4 new titles touched down on Netflix in the United States today after an excellent weekend of new releases. Let’s take a look at what’s new and what’s trending in the top 10 movies and TV series for August 17th, 2020.

If you’re looking for some of the other movies that are brand new on Netflix, check out our best list and you also should check out yesterday’s additions which saw three great titles drop.

We’ve also got your weekly preview for you which includes everything coming to Netflix over the next 6 days.


Drunk Parents (2019)

Genre: Comedy
Director: Fred Wolf
Cast: Alec Baldwin, Salma Hayek, Jim Gaffigan, Joe Manganiello
Writer: Fred Wolf, Peter Gaulke
Runtime: 97 min

Two drunk parents are the subject of this comedy who are trying to hide their financial difficulties and do so by creating insane neighborhood schemes.

Sadly, this comedy didn’t pick up good review scores from critics and audience scores are just as bad too. In fact, as of the time of publishing the movie only has an abysmal 3.8 out of 10. If you’re wanting to see how bad it is, you can do so as part of your Netflix subscription.


Glitch Techs (Season 2)

Genre: Animation, Action, Family, Sci-Fi
Cast: Ricardo Hurtado, Monica Ray, Scott Kreamer, Dan Milano
Writer: Dan Milano, Eric Robles

Our second highlight today is the next batch of episodes from Nickelodeon’s first title released as part of the Netflix output deal.

Glitch Techs is a beautifully animated kids series about monsters from a video game infecting the real world and it’s down to tech support to fix it.
