Fairfax season 2 preview takes a trip to Flavortown

The quest for social media fame and credibility is never-ending in Prime Video‘s Fairfax. In this adult animated series, four middle-school-aged friends desperately chase the clout that could change their lives and make them popular. Or at least internet famous. And in the first preview scene from Fairfax season 2, it looks like one of the kids may be inching closer to his dreams.

In the clip below, Truman (Jaboukie Young-White) accidentally creates a culinary sensation. Unfortunately for him, he lets it go to his head pretty quickly as he assumes some of the rude mannerisms of Hell’s Kitchen host Gordon Ramsay. But at least Truman gets to meet the self-declared Mayor of Flavortown, Guy Fieri!

The talking pigeons, Quattro (J. B. Smoove) and Glenn (John Leguizamo), also make appearances in this preview. But if we know anything about the show, it’s inevitable that Truman’s newfound success will blow up in his face.

3 underrated movies on Amazon Prime Video you need to watch in July
A woman and a man talk in court in Jagged Edge.

Want to stream a good movie this month, but you're unsure about what to watch? There are lots of new movies coming out, including some you might have missed when they were first released. But there are also some great movies released as recently as this year that might have fallen under the radar. Many of them are available to watch on Amazon Prime Video with your base subscription.

This month, the three underrated movies on Prime Video you need to watch in July include two movies that were released in the last year, but that may have missed. One is an action thriller starring a pro in the genre, Jason Statham. The other, coming to Amazon Prime Video (without an add-on) near the end of the month, is the story of one of the most prolific music artists of the 1970s, whose music and musical influences have endured for decades.

What’s new on Amazon Prime Video in July 2024
Jason Statham broods in a still from The Beekeeper

It may be too soon to call Amazon Prime Video the best streaming service of 2024, but if it keeps bringing the hits like it does in July then it's got a pretty strong case for the No. 1 position. Following The Boys season 4 and Oppenheimer, Prime Video could have slowed down. Instead, Amazon's streaming service is adding recent releases like The Beekeeper, Bob Marley: One Love, Lisa Frankenstein, and Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part 1.

Additionally, this month's Prime Video original movies include My Spy: The Eternal City and Space Cadet. There's also an unusually high number of classic films like Breakfast at Tiffany's, Dr. Strangelove, Easy Rider, From Here to Eternity, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, Lawrence of Arabia, and The Bridge on the River Kwai. Franchises are also represented by most of the Rocky and Star Trek films.
