So to help you get set up, we've got that all important 'what’s new to Netflix this month' list:

Straight Outta Compton (Now Streaming)

Live from Dublin: Jeff Dunham : Relative Disaster (From Today, 12 September )

Ventriloquist and global comedy superstar Jeff Dunham brings his rude and slightly demented posse of dummies to Ireland for a gleeful skewering of family and politics in his debut Netflix Original stand-up comedy special, "Jeff Dunham: Relative Disaster."

Filmed at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin, Dunham and his famous cohorts Walter, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Bubba J, Peanut and Seamus leave the audience in stitches from start to finish.

Heroin(e) (12 September)

American Vandal is a half-hour true-crime satire that explores the aftermath of a costly high school prank that left twenty-seven faculty cars vandalized with phallic images.

Over the course of the eight-episode season, an aspiring sophomore documentarian investigates the controversial and potentially unjust expulsion of troubled senior (and known dick-drawer) Dylan Maxwell.

Not unlike its now iconic true-crime predecessors, the addictive American Vandal will leave one question on everyone's minds until the very end: Who drew the dicks?

First They Killed My Father (15 September)

Directed by Angelina Jolie, First They Killed My Father is the adaptation of Cambodian author and human rights activist Loung Ung’s gripping memoir of surviving the deadly Khmer Rouge regime from 1975 to 1978.
