Halloween is coming, friends, and even though this is going to be a very different type of holiday than we are probably used to…we can still get spoopy! 

To help you get in the Halloween mood, here are some of my favorite spoopy television series. It is by no means a comprehensive list—I watch too many shows to include them all—but here are my favs, in no particular order:

I binge-watched the entirety of the newest season of Veronica Mars in about two days, and as soon as I semi-recovered from the ending, I thought: how the hell am I going to review this without spoilers??? So I’m not going to. Instead, I want to share with you all a few things that I’ve learned from Veronica over the last 16 years.

The Mutineer & I binge-watched the entirety of Hulu’s Harlots last weekend. I mean, I knew I was going to enjoy it because 18th century London is my thing, but I didn’t know how friggin much I was going to become obsessed with it.

If this is the first time you’ve heard of Harlots, here’s a short synopsis: Margaret Wells (Samantha Morton) is the bawd of a brothel in Covent Garden, with her eye on a house in Greek Street so that she can get a higher class of clientele. Margaret’s former bawd, Mrs. Quigley, isn’t fond of her competition moving closer to her, and, well, have you ever seen Drop Dead Gorgeous? It’s viciously catty like that, but with a lot more sex and blood.

Here are three quick reasons why you should give the show a chance if you haven’t already.
