We’re coming out of Spooky Season, which means it’s a little harder for streaming services to come up with general month-long themes to apply to their content libraries, but Amazon seems to have landed on a slightly odd one for November in the form of what a press release is calling “action-packed franchises.” That may sound exciting, but the two franchises that Amazon is getting next month are a little more “surprisingly popular” than “actually good.” We’re talking about The Expendables trilogy, which were very hot among desperate action fans for a short time, and three of the Underworld movies, which were directed by a good-looking guy in his 40s named Len Wiseman. They’re all coming on November 1, so if you’re feeling a little anxious about the stresses of real life for some reason in early November, that’s six movies of reliably dumb/possibly cool action to distract yourself with! (There’s also Bombshell, but it’s harder to make jokes about that one.)

In terms of Prime Originals coming in November, Amazon subscribers will also be able to check out James May: Oh Cook, another docuseries/paid vacation from the guy on Top Gear The Grand Tour who drives too slow, a film anthology called Small Axe about London’s West Indian community, a show called The Pack that sounds like The Amazing Race but with dogs, and Paul Bettany’s ‘70s road trip drama Uncle Frank. Amazon is also taking on the former YouTube Original Wayne, which is about a guy and his “one-of-a-kind girlfriend” on a road trip to steal back his dying father’s ‘70s Trans-Am. James May is also known to take road trips, so there are lots of ‘70s things and road trips on Amazon, apparently.

The full list of what’s coming to Amazon Prime in November—plus a list of preview seasons from Prime Video Channels that will be available to regular Prime subscribers for free—is below.
