You have some big decisions to make.

The glorious current seasons of The LeftoversVeep, and Silicon Valley on HBO come to a grinding halt in June. You’ve probably missed several episodes here, so our advice is to use the month to catch up on the three essential series. But also keep an eye on If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast, a promising documentary about Hollywood’s silver generation, still going strong in their ’90s. Other than that, Nicolas Cage’s The Family Man is leaving at the end of the month—it’s a holiday film about the roads we don’t travel, and damn will it make you nostalgic.

New on HBO in June 2017: Editor’s pick

The Leftovers

To watch The Leftovers in the age of President Trump is pointedly chilling. Lindelof himself has said that Trump appealed to Christian evangelicals because they hoped he might kickstart the End Times, when all the evils of the world would be wiped out and the good would receive eternal glory. The Leftovers, which is unafraid to deal with black and uncomfortable subject matter, has earned a reputation as the most depressing show on television, but it’s uplifting in an extremely unconventional way. Although the show is ostensibly about how humans deal with the inevitability of death, The Leftovers is also about life—even as cliche as that sounds.

I can’t recommend this season of The Leftovers more highly. It is everything television should be. As a fan, I imagine myself continually returning to it throughout the course of my life, seeking wisdom and even comfort. What will it mean to me at 45, 55, or however long humanity has left before we become our own self-fulfilling prophecy? Some shows you watch, but others become a part of you. —Nico Lang
