Mostly As: Mad Men. Don Draper is calling your name; you’ll be sure to love the politics, lifestyles, and debauchery of Sterling-Cooper’s advertising agency. Not to mention the amazing retro fashion!

Mostly Bs: The Carrie Diaries. You want a lighthearted, girly show to shamelessly marathon. As a prequel to Sex and the City, this story of Carrie Bradshaw’s high school years should be much appreciated by anyone, whether you’re a fan of the HBO hit from the early 2000s or not.

Mostly Cs: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. You’re looking for a funny, clever show you can easily breeze through in one weekend. You’ll love Tina Fey’s latest creation, starring Ellie Kemper, who you might recognize as the scatterbrained secretary from The Office.

Mostly Ds: Scandal. Olivia Pope is your feminist role model to-be. It’s handled.
