Yes, we know August is a month for beers, barbecues and (sun)bathing, but you could also bask in the glow of all this TV awesomeness as well…
Game of Thrones Season 7 streaming this month. Season finale on 28 August The show that needs no introduction. The TV phenomenon’s seventh season comes to a close this month and although it’d be foolish to predict this show, we can guarantee a thrilling finale.
Will Jon Snow overcome the White Walkers? Will The Wall stand firm? Will Cersei or Daenerys come out on top? We may get the answer to all these questions, we may not.
Either way, expect death, dread and dragons.

The mysterious Doctor Ford (Anthony Hopkins) pulls the strings, but can he keep control as the robots struggle to achieve consciousness…and humanity itself?
