Summer is in full swing, and in between the beach and other outdoor adventures, you’ll needs some time in the AC to nurse your sunburn. When you need to relax indoors, HBO Now has you covered with new content on their streaming service for June. Four HBO originals — The Leftovers, Veep, Psi, and Silicon Valley — are airing their finales (series finale for The Leftovers), so in the meantime you should definitely catch up on the full seasons. The heartwarming HBO documentary If You’re Not In The Obit, Eat Breakfast is also a nice change of pace from the usual true crime and political documentaries that just don’t scream “summer fun.” Silicon Valley star T.J. Miller also has a new stand up set that is certain to be latest great HBO comedy special.

HBO Now is also getting new releases like The Accountant, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children, and Krampus that are perfect for your next movie night. If you’re looking for something a bit more classic, Be Cool, Bend It Like Beckham, or Speed might be more your style.

The Leftovers

Lost may have put showrunner Damon Lindelof on the map, but The Leftovers is his opus. A beautifully written and acted look at the end of the world, season three has managed to walk the line between utterly bleak and completely magnetic, with Carrie Coon turning in a particularly ferocious performance. While it certainly isn’t one to binge watch in a weekend, The Leftovers should be the next show that you savor.

T.J. Miller: Meticulously Ridiculous

T.J. Miller has been a hilarious ensemble player in both Silicon Valley and Crashing, and now he’s got his time alone in the spotlight. In his first HBO special, Miller will be bringing his trademark sensibilities — articulate and acerbic stoner — to Meticulously Ridiculous. If you find yourself needing more Erlich Bachman following Silicon Valley‘s finale, this is definitely your best option.

If You’re Not In The Obit, Eat Breakfast

If you’re looking for something to watch on a lazy Saturday afternoon, this HBO documentary is a delightful option. Focusing on the lives of Hollywood legends (Carl Reiner, Betty White, and Dick Van Dyke to name a few) over the age of 90, If You’re Not In The Obit is a funny and warmhearted look at how life can get even more rewarding the older that you get. You might even learn the secret to going strong as you approach the century mark.
