SHOW TO WATCH WITH YOUR GIRLFRIENDS

1. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: The show’s all about a woman who gives up her successful life in New York to look for love in the suburbs of California. Let she among us who has not gone a bit crazy for a relationship cast the first stone. That’s how the saying goes, right? (Image via CW)

2. Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce: When the life of a self-help author falls apart, she’ll do anything to put it back together — or at least make it look like it’s held together.

LEARN SOMETHING NEW

3. The Circus: The series that was made for everybody who feels like this election is just one giant mess, The Circus goes behind the scenes and looks at how candidates cater to media attention and the flamboyancy necessary in politics. A perfect watch to be entertained, informed and caught up on this year’s hottest (and longest) news story. (Image via Showtime)

4. A Girl in the River: When the world seems increasingly torn by geography, it’s always nice to watch a film that puts you in the mindset of someone from somewhere completely different. This documentary follows a young woman in Pakistan who is sentenced to death after she married someone without her family’s permission. It’s a fascinating watch that will deepen your understanding of other countries and cultures. (Image via HBO)

COMEDIES WITH A DARK SIDE

5. Flaked: This movie stars Will Arnett as a serial liar who falls in love with his best friend’s girl. And just to make things more complicated, he’s a recovering alcoholic. The whole thing sounds dark, but is deeply funny thanks to Arnett’s perfect comedic timing. (Image via Netflix)

6. Rocky Horror Picture Show: It’s your last chance to check out the much-loved film about a sweet transvestite from transsexual Transylvania. The movie, made in 1975, is a cult classic whose music plays at way more parties than you would expect. It expires from HBO at the end of the month. (Image via HBO)

BECOME SOMEONE ELSE

9. Everything Is Copy: Nora Ephron, the super-clever lady who wrote When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle and a whole slew of her own books FINALLY has a documentary about her. The doc about Nora Ephron was directed by her son and provides an intimate look at a woman who believed that (almost) everything in her life was worthy of becoming a story. (Image via HBO)
