At the beginning of (and throughout) every month, HBO adds new movies and TV shows to HBO Go and HBO Now. Here is a quick list of several titles you might be interested in. Some of these may have been on HBO previously, only to have been removed and then added back. Feel free to note anything we’ve left out in the comments below.

What HBO wants you to watch: Getting On (Season 3 premiere)
Now entering its third and final season, HBO’s Getting On focuses on a group of doctors and nurses working in a women’s geriatric ward. With complex performances from Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein, Niecy Nash, and Mel Rodriguez, Getting On moves between cringe comedy, bureaucratic satire, and somber reflection on life and death, often within the space of a single bit.

Available November 8.

Embrace your inner goddess: Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)
If you missed the chance to see 2015’s great lip-biting and French-vanilla (a.k.a. vanilla, but with a better PR team) sex epic in theaters early this spring, now you can stream it on your laptop at work, on the crowded subway during rush hour, or waiting in line for that cool new ice-cream place down the street — just the way it was meant to be watched.

Available November 21.

From Chimpan-A to Chimpanzee: Planet of the Apes (1968)
Anything we could say about the plot of this 1968 sci-fi classic has already been spoiled for you by the recent Apes films, internet comments, or that episode of Mad Men where Don takes Bobby No. 4 to see it. Instead, we’ll just leave you with The Simpsons’ musical take and go about our business.

Available November 1.

The time has come for my dreams to be heard: Dreamgirls (2006)
To the song here in my heart
A melody I start and can’t complete.
Eddie Murphy could have won
An Oscar for this film
If he hadn’t made Norbiiiit.

Available November 1.

More like Savile Murderer’s Row: Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014)
Colin Firth has a weaponized umbrella! Taron Egerton looks good in glasses! Spies! Weapons! Samuel L. Jackson got a paycheck! At this point, you’re already sold or you’re out.
