What to watch when: the sun now sets at 5pm

Well, bikini season is finally over and indoor season is quickly approaching. We can officially binge for hours without the shame and guilt of not taking advantage of the outdoors and warm (read: unbearably sweaty) weather. Remember, UV rays from the sun are toxic! If you are willing to accept toxic energy, get it from something that won't give you sun damage... like Tinder.

We now find ourselves indoors and faced with a never ending pile of new series released this summer and no clue where to begin. I'm here to help you prioritize your content choices (not your life choices-- those are on you! and if you identify as a woman, those are up to the government) as you settle back inside.

Where to watch: AppleTV+

Irish icon Sharon Horgan developed and stars in this dark-comedy thriller about 5 sisters bound together by the mysterious death (murder?!) of their retched brother-in-law. It's currently live and dropping 1 ep per week, so catch up now before spoilers make the rounds.

Where to watch: Hulu

This show is a benzo before bedtime. It's the tale of Maggie, (played by Rebecca Rittenhouse and her flawless skin), a psychic who navigates the complications of having a supernatural ability. Sadly, this show was just cancelled, but it's the perfect rebound show after your favorite series ended or an extra boost to get your melatonin pumping.

Where to watch: Hulu

Selena Gomez, Steve Martin and Martin Short -- or as Bowen Yang put it, "Lady Gaga taking care of 2 Tony Bennetts" -- are neighbors who take it upon themselves to solve the murders in their historic NYC apartment building. Depending on your appetite, this show can either be taken in small doses or binged in one sitting.

Where to watch: Netflix

Never Have I Ever not enjoyed a Mindy Kaling production. She has done what Lena Dunham only threatened to do: be the voice of multiple generations. This series tells the story of Devi, an Indian-American teenager as she explores who she is, what she wants and how to get it. File this under: hangover cure or non-committal on a weekday night.

Where to watch: Hulu

The story of family beef, actual beef and a beefed-up chef played by Jeremy Allen White. This show will not only make you consider becoming a chef, but it will also make you want to date one (especially if his name rhymes with Leramy Fallon Tight). Survey says? Yes, chef!

Where to watch: Hulu

According to Hulu, it's "the story of a young woman's obsession with a man who is good at being charming." Okay, Hulu, a nice Jewish boy is "good at being charming"... this guy is just a f*ck boy. Sure, the writing is mediocre and the characters seem a bit obvious, but that's what makes it oddly comforting and super addicting. It's a great series for when you want to feel sexy while wearing a pimple patch. Or, if you can't shake a crush on a guy you know isn't worth your time. Just don't watch this on a plane or while visiting your parents. You will regret it!

Where to watch: HBO Max

I'm hesitant to share too much of what this mind-bending, cringey yet lovable "docu(?)"-series is about. You'll just need to take a chance and find out on your own because: "life isn't a dress rehearsal" - a sign at HomeGoods, probably.

Where to watch: Peacock

It's as if the White Lotus resort existed in a worm hole. If you're like me and love a tale about the time-space continuum (and if you like TV series that take place at a paradisiacal resort that hold dark secrets) you'll love this!
