In terms of entertainment, this November serves as a bit of a buffer between the deluge of last-ditch efforts to persuade the country to vote and the soon-to-be unyielding stream of yuletide popcorn flicks. This is also the month that will have a lot of us reevaluating our Thanksgiving traditions, as some of them—like big awkward family gatherings and, for some of us insatiable weirdos, wading through early Black Friday crowds—might not valid options this year. Seems like staying in with a movie is going to be a pretty popular contingency plan this holiday season, and HBO Max is onboarding more than enough content worthy of a decent distraction.

If you’re skipping the family dinner this year, you can shadow the Banks family reunion when the cast of The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air—yes, including Janet Hubert this time—gathers for a special premiering sometime next month. In the mood for a big feast? Season five of Food Wars! Shokugeki No Soma arrives with enough culinary drama to last for a few intense meals. Friendsgiving a no-go? The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants films head to the streamer just in time for you to question all of your friendships.

With season one of Lovecraft Country officially wrapped, HBO rotates its original series lineup with the return of His Dark Materials which, according to the network’s synopsis, returns “after Lord Asriel has opened a bridge to a new world, and, distraught over the death of her best friend, Lyra follows Asriel into the unknown.” For HBO Max, Kaley Kuoco returns not as Harley Quinn, but as The Flight Attendant who, after a horny fling, finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. Ugh, we miss flying.

There’s tons of stuff do dig into—Craftopia Christmas special! Magic Mike! Looney Tunes!—but make sure to get your last helpings of Aquaman, The Dark Knight, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles before they exit the platform. Check out the list (and sizzle reel) below.
