Amazon Prime typically gets the same list of new movies and TV shows each month as Hulu, save for a few original programs.

But that doesn't mean you should pick one over the other. Just last week, Amazon premiered The Last Tycoon, based on the unfinished F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. And this month it gets superhero spoof The Tick, part of last year's pilot season.

Review: The Last Tycoon is a dazzling adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's unfinished work

You'll want to tune in to everything coming to Amazon Prime in August.

Ghost: The romantic thriller to end all romantic thrillers. I don't even need to talk about that pottery wheel scene. You know what's up. Aug. 1

Teen Wolf: Before Tyler Posey ran a squad of hunky werewolves in the MTV series, Michael J. Fox was an awkward teen wolf who used his lycanthropic abilities to become the hero of the school basketball team. Aug. 1

The Tick Season 1: If you're looking for a comic book series that doesn't take itself too seriously and pokes fun at superhero tropes, The Tick is for you. It stars Peter Serafinowicz as a bright blue-tights clad bug with a goofy superhero baritone voice. Aug. 25

Victoria Season 1: Series screenwriter Daisy Goodwin drew inspiration from Queen Victoria's numerous personal diaries to bring her life and reign to life. Aug. 29
