Widows (November 16): Viola Davis is earning some early Oscar buzz for her starring role as the ringleader of an unlikely heist crew. Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki, and Cynthia Erivo play four women who, despite their differences, must band together to finish their husbands’ unfinished criminal business after their deaths. With a script co-written by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl,Sharp Objects), you know it’s going to be intense. Check it out in theaters on Friday, November 16.

Grey’s Anatomy (November 15): Grey’s Anatomy‘s fall finale airs this Thursday, and from the looks of the preview ABC dropped after last week’s episode, it’s going to be a doozy. The episode will see the staff at Grey Sloan Memorial overwhelmed with patients during a massive windstorm, all while dealing with their own personal drama. Will Teddy tell Owen about her pregnancy? Will Meredith and DeLuca act on their obvious attraction to each other? What consequences will Richard face after the incident at the bar? Tune in to ABC on Thursday at 8pm.

Dogs (November 16): We don’t know how else to say this: Netflix made a documentary series about dogs. The six-part show tells various stories about dogs and all the ways they make humans’ lives better around the world. There’s no way you don’t sob at least once per episode. Check it out when it arrives on Netflix on Friday, November 16. (Photo via Netflix)
