And Just Like That… (Max): The fifth episode is one of my favorites and directed by Cynthia Nixon. There’s a Halloween party, a guest starring appearance from one of your Younger favorites, and a moment that made the entire Glamour office scream in delight (you’ll see what we mean). Streaming

Survival of the Thickest (Netflix): The eight episode comedy series centers on Mavis Beaumont (Michelle Buteau), a struggling stylist who is determined to thrive with the support of her chosen family and retail therapy. It’s based on Buteau’s acclaimed book of essays and also stars Tone Bell, Tasha Smith, Liza Treyger, Anissa Felix, Garcelle Beauvais, Taylor Selé, Anthony Michael Lopez, Marouane Zottie, Allan K Washington, and Sarah Cooper.
