There’s a bunch of new stuff dropping on Prime Video this month, from old classics we have had some trouble finding on other services (or on Hulu, but only if you pay $56, not normal Hulu) to some fancy new premieres, so here’s a run-through of some of the weirdest, and most fun and most unique stuff … along with some facts we bet you might not have known about them. 

And if you did, congrats! You get one silver star. Five silver stars gets one gold star. Eight gold stars gets a two-second handshake. After 12 handshakes, you qualify for a platinum certification. Once certified platinum seven times, bam! Then you’re in first class. And after a few years in first class, you can trade that first-class status for a hug! But not from us. We actually have a thing about hugging people. Your mom will probably hug you. Maybe.
