If you haven’t yet taken advantage of HBO’s free trial month, right now is probably the best time to take advantage of it. Odds are that you won’t be able to finish all nine seasons of Game of Thrones, but lucky for you some of HBO’s best shows are less than 2 seasons long. Below are three shows you can (and should) watch and finish during your free trial month.

Big Little Lies


With the newest season of this award-winning show having just wrapped up, right now is the best time to binge-watch the two seasons of this crime drama. Each season is seven episodes long and each episode is one hour full of mystery and wine mom drama. Not to mention that each episode is full of amazing acting from the all-star cast including Shailene Woodley, Reese Witherspoon, Zoe Kravitz, Nicole Kidman, and the one and only Meryl Streep. So, sit back, grab a glass of wine, and enjoy watching the drama unfold in Monterey Bay.

Los Espookys

This Spanish-language comedy starring Bernardo Velasco, Cassandra Ciangherotti, Ana Fabrega, and Julio Torres centers on Renaldo (Velasco) and his three best friends who start a business that makes people’s spookiest nightmares come true. From staging an exorcism for a priest with low self-esteem to creating a sea monster tourist attraction, Los Espookys do it all. Although their business is espooky, the show itself is laugh-out-loud funny and the characters are even more so. There is currently only one season of the show (soon to be 2) with six, 1-hour episodes, so getting through this creepy comedy is a breeze.


Almost everyone has heard of this show by now, but if you haven’t, Euphoria is one of HBO’s newest shows starring Zendaya, Hunter Schaefer, and an ensemble of other amazing (and fashionable) actors. The show revolves around Rue (Zendaya) and her struggles after getting out of rehab for drug addiction along with following the lives of other people as they go through struggles with body image, sex, and relationships. Even though this show is a “high school drama,” the topics it covers are very real and the acting and production of the show are phenomenal. The first season of the show has eight, 1-hour episodes total after the season finale on August 4th.
