Start your bingeing engines: New shows streaming in August

It's a month for fabulous wigs as RuPaul's Drag Race and Funny or Die's take on Donald Trump hit the streaming services this month.

Gentleman, start your engines. And may the best woman win.

Stan

Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come to lip-sync for your life!

RuPaul is hitting Stan with a vengeance this month, ready to take down all the basic b*tches of the world and get them to lift their game in "RuPaul's Drag Race" and the game show "Gay For Play." Now is the time to binge on Jinx Monsoon and Latrice Royale, and werk like you've never werked before.

Presto has its usual killer line-up of movies (many of which you'll find on Foxtel, but without the install fee). A lot of the good stuff, like "V for Vendetta" and "Annie Hall," drops on August 1, but you'll need to wait til the 7th for "Beverly Hills Chihuahua". A whole week?! I know, it's going to be tough.

You might have to wait a few months for new episodes of "Black Mirror" and "Gilmore Girls" to come to Netflix, but in the meantime, the US streaming service is showing greats like "Pretty Woman," "Braveheart" and "Argo." And for political buffs, you can catch Funny Or Die's take on Trump in "Donald Trump's the Art of the Deal."
