Okay, there’s no denying that our collective streaming attention is turned toward the much-hyped debut of House of the Dragon, a Game of Thrones prequel series that follows the downfall of House Targaryen. But, if you have some time to kill before the fantasy blockbuster premieres on Sunday, there’s She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, a Marvel legal dramedy starring Tatiana Maslany as the titular She-Hulk. Or Echoes, a thriller about two twin sisters who swap lives every year. Here’s our roundup of the best titles streaming on Crave, Disney Plus, Netflix, Apple TV Plus and Prime Video this week.

House of the Dragon

Get ready to return to Westeros. Set hundreds of years before the events of Game of Thrones, this eagerly awaited prequel series chronicles the beginning of the end of the almighty House Targaryen—and their numerous dragons—as the family devolves into a war of succession over the Iron Throne. Matt Smith, Paddy Considine, Emma D’Arcy and Olivia Cooke are among the ensemble cast. August 21

The Old Man

In this series adapted from the Thomas Perry novel of the same name, Jeff Bridges stars as off-the-grid former CIA agent Dan Chase, who is forced to resurface when both the FBI and a special-ops contractor begin hunting him down. Along the way, Dan rents a room from a woman named Zoe (Amy Brenneman) to hide out in, inadvertently dragging her into his mess. Now streaming

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law

Canadian actress Tatiana Maslany joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe in this legal dramedy that looks to be more of an action-packed Ally McBeal than an in-your-face superhero title. Maslany is Jennifer Walters, a 30-something lawyer who happens to transform into a towering green hulk. Luckily, she can get a little help from her cousin, Avenger Bruce Banner/the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), as she navigates her own abilities and foes. Now streaming

Untold: Volume 2 

This sports documentary series returns for another round, with a new true story being explored over the next four weeks.

Look Both Ways 

Gen Z gets its own version of Sliding Doors with this dramedy following Natalie (Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart), a young woman who takes a pregnancy test on the night of her college graduation. From there, we see her life split into two paths: one in which she is pregnant and stays in her hometown to raise her family and another in which she moves to LA to pursue her dreams as an artist.

Michelle Monaghan pulls double duty in this twisty miniseries as Leni and Gina, identical twins who swap lives every year on their birthday without anyone else—husbands included—knowing.

Bad Sisters

The premature deaths of their parents years ago brought the Garvey sisters closer together than ever before, and they promised to always look out for each other.
