Here are the dog days of summer, traditionally the hottest time of the year (or at least, it was until our addiction to oil caused seasons to die). Usually, now is the peak of garden hoses being sprayed on our faces, filling up kiddie pools, or powering up slip-n-slides in the backyards of America. Fireworks, hot dogs, bonfires, making out in front of the bonfires, making out in the car on the way to the bonfire, making out on the slip-n-slide for a bit before you get dressed to go to the bonfire, and so many other activities are lionized as peak July events.

Well, another thing you can do this July is cool off and crank on the air conditioner to check out some stuff on Netflix. You can watch fireworks, a documentary on hot dogs, programs that feature fire, and just make out in front of damn near anything. There’s also stuff you actually would want to watch, too.

Here’s some new stuff coming to Netflix this month, and facts about that.
