Ryan Gosling brings the heat in spy thriller 'The Gray Man'

(CNN)I was going to make a joke about how hot it is out and how hot the stars are in the first of the three things to watch this week, but I'm too busy sweating to amuse you all.

It feels hell hot in multiple places around the world, so please check on the vulnerable (pets, young people, the elderly) and try to stay cool.

How can you ignore a film that stars Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans and Regé-Jean Page? The answer is you cannot.

In this spy thriller, Gosling and Evans play a pair of shadow CIA agents who are trying to off each other. There is plenty of fast-paced action, with Gosling getting compared to James Bond in online chatter.

We can thank Issa Rae for this one, even though she's not starring.

The "Insecure" star/co-creator served as executive producer and wrote the debut episode for this series about two estranged friends who come together to form a rap duo.

"Keep It" podcast host Aida Osman and "Love & Hip Hop: Miami" star and rapper KaMillion play the lead roles.

The comedy is set in Miami and very much giving shades of the real-life rap duo City Girls, but with the wit of Rae and her team in a comedy that's as much about female empowerment and life as it is hip-hop.

I don't usually drop shows here that have been on for a while, but I kept hearing about "Virgin River." And now I understand why.

Set in a small town, it's soapy and has romance and drama. If that doesn't scream "addictive comfort viewing," nothing does.
