Whether you’re working from home, starting a new business, or finally getting around to that unfinished project, make sure you carve out some time for yourself. Over the past several months, Covid-19 has had us indoors, and let’s be honest, it’s easy to get cabin fever these days. Needless to say, now might be a good time to catch up on shows you’ve been meaning to try or just rewatch some oldies. So with that said, here are some of my favorite HBO series and documentaries that I guarantee will have you glued to the tube. Remember, its not TV, its HBO.
