What’s leaving Sky and NOW in August / September 2021?
James R | On 26, Aug 2021
Sky’s growing number of original shows and ever-expanding catalogue of blockbusters is handy for keeping your days and nights occupied, but before you break open new box sets or devour some blockbusting films, don’t miss your chance to catch some modern gems before their rights expire and they depart.
That means taking care not to miss out some of Sky’s exclusives, such as Big Little Lies and Avenue 5. Or, if you’ve got Sky Cinema, Le Mans 66, Taxi Driver and Joker.
This is your last chance to stream the following:
Breeders – 28th August
Martin Freeman plays impressively against type in this darkly funny exploration of parenting and toxic masculinity.
Avenue 5: Season 1 – 31st August
Incompetence is the final frontier in Armando Iannucci’s laugh-out-loud space sitcom.
Big Little Lies: Season 1 and 2 – 31st August
Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon star in HBO’s excellent miniseries about three mothers whose apparently perfect lives unravel to the point of murder. Written by David E. Kelley and directed by Dallas Buyers Club helmer Jean-Marc Vallée, this is a gripping showcase for an ensemble complex female characters.

Just as another summer opens up to a world of fun, Mike begins falling for his new protégé’s captivating sister. Despite the mutual attraction, Mike might miss his chance when his lifestyle gets in the way.

For all its cliches, it’s hard to resist Richard Curtis going full Richard Curtis in this rambling, uneven seasonal anthology.
