Now streaming: ‘Comrade Detective,’ ‘Colossal,’ ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ sequel

A list of titles available for home viewing and streaming this week.

Amazon Prime’s new series “Comrade Detective: Season 1” spoofs American ’80s crime TV and Soviet Cold War clichés with a mock Bulgarian cop drama. It includes ’80s fashions, Communist propaganda and American dubbing by Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Nick Offerman (six episodes).

Welcome back, campers! Netflix presents “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later,” the eight-episode sequel to the summer-camp comedy spoof from David Wain and Michael Showalter. It features a huge cast of comedy pals.
