I May Destroy You
 
          
"Excuse me while I go full-on fangirl: British actress Michaela Coel is, to put it mildly, a force to be reckoned with. And in her new HBO show "I May Destroy You," a story of assault unfolds that's as nuanced as it is real and relevant—all the while brimming with the same unique wit that made Coel's first TV show, "Chewing Gum," so incredibly brilliant. The result is heart-wrenching, laced with dark humor, and will leave you at the edge of your seat counting down the days until the next episode airs."—Rachel Hodin, Senior Fashion Writer

Liziqi 
 
  
“I am mesmerized with Liziqi’s YouTube channel about country life with her grandmother in rural China. She shares everything from cooking to crafting a handmade mattress, to fermenting plums. It’s Cottagecore in its finest form.” —Amber Schiffer, Director, Stylist & Affiliate Innovation

Jaws
 
  
“‘Jaws’ is my favorite movie and watching it late at night in June signals the start of summer for me. In fact, if it weren’t for the scorching heat, those '70s-era fisherman-style sweaters would be my summer uniform.” —Jeffrey Roy, Fashion Team Coordinator

Normal People
 
   
“I am just finishing up ‘Normal People’ on Hulu. I loved the book by Sally Rooney. She has an ability to convey emotions (teenage emotions, nonetheless!) like no author I’ve read before—rarely do on-screen adaptations do the books justice. I’m also hoping that a TV adaptation of ‘Conversations with Friends’ (another must-read by Rooney) is in the pipeline…” —Courtney Klender, Managing Editor

Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise
 
    
“I’ve recently watched a few documentaries on Netflix. I enjoyed them all, for various reasons, but most importantly for the pride it gave me as a Black person. Each highlights a different figure whose accomplishments and craft are exceptional on their own—and even more so when you consider the time period in which these people lived, and the resistance and challenges they had to overcome to achieve success. I learned a lot of things that I didn’t know—especially about Quincy Jones.” —Leah Smith, HR Operations Manager

Hamilton
 
      
“Three words: Lin-Manuel Miranda’s ‘Hamilton.’ The movie adaptation was initially slotted to be released later this year, but it’s now officially launching on Disney+ July 3rd—a date I have dutifully memorized. I can’t wait to see how the musical is re-interpreted for the screen (and to watch with subtitles, so I can easily sing along).” —Elizabeth Taufield, Senior Fashion Editor

Dirty John
 
       
“I was hooked on the ‘Dirty John’ podcast from the beginning and, because I missed out on the first season of the true-crime anthology series that aired in 2018, I’m particularly excited to get on board with season two. This rendition has a different cast than the first and should be a fresh take on a nail-biting storyline.” —Porter Simmons, Editorial & Styling Assistant

The High Note
 
        
“I’m looking forward to watching ‘The High Note,’ starring Tracee Ellis Ross (apparently she makes her singing debut in the film, playing a musical superstar!) I’m a huge fan of Ross’s—not only is she a talented actor, but she also has amazing style.” —Crystal Tate, Copy Editor

Mad Men
 
         
“I know, I know, I’m shamefully late to the party. I’ve been steadily plowing my way through the 92-episode series for a few weeks now and can honestly say seeing Don, Joan, Betty, and the gang dressed to the nines is the highlight of my evening. I’ve also developed a penchant for hard liquor, and something tells me the two are related.” —Tatiana Hambro, Editorial Director

Hannah Gadsby: Douglas
 
          
“Hannah Gadsby’s previous (and first-ever) Netflix special, ‘Nanette,’ is not just a must-watch for queer women, it’s also a must-watch for anyone who’s tired of seeing female comedians rely solely on self-deprecation for laughs. I’d describe Hannah Gadsby as more of a storyteller than a comic. And her second special, ‘Douglas’—released late May—is equally powerful: prepare to laugh, but also to cry.” —Alexis Archer, Email Marketing & Ecommerce Manager
