Lockdown? AKA the best time to get stuck into that 9-season series everyone has been recommending to you for forever! In Suits, one of Manhattan's top corporate lawyers sets out to recruit a new associate and hires the only guy that impresses him, a brilliant but unmotivated college dropout. Though he isn't actually a lawyer, he has the book smarts of a Harvard law grad and the street smarts of a swindler.

Catch up with the Gilmore girls and bring back all the feels with this 4-episode special. This comedy-drama follows the life of a mother and daughters close bond. It will hit you in the feels with the many tears, laughs and dramas.
Brain on Fire
This film is one of our all-time personal favs! Featuring Chloe Grace Moretz it's already bound to be an amazing movie. Experiencing seizures, psychosis and memory loss, Sophia is fighting for her life while multiple doctors fight to find the cause. Her health is drastically decreasing, and the doctors are adamant on putting her in a mental health facility, while her parents refuse, knowing there is something deeper that they’re missing.
This beautiful film definitely falls under the tearjerker genre. The film follows a single man who is raising his niece who is extremely intelligent. The story is based around him getting into a legal battle with his mother over Mary’s custody. Frank is desperate to treat Mary like the child she is and give her an amazing childhood despite her incredible intelligence.
