The Wolf of Wall Street
A stockbroker (Leonardo DiCaprio) rises to power on 1990s Wall Street in Martin Scorsese’s epic tale of drugs, debauchery and Jonah Hill’s prosthetic penis. Also starring Matthew McConaughey, because everything does now. (Paramount)

Veep: Season 2
Vice President Selina Meyer (Julia-Louis Dreyfus) deals with midterm elections, an asshole political strategist (Gary Cole), rural ’Merica, the military, the government shutdown and the worst staff in D.C. Probably all (shudder) true. (HBO)

Californication: Season 6
Hank (David Duchovny) attempts to adapt his book into a Broadway musical with the help of an effd-up British rock star (Tim Minchin) and rehab—naturally, both lead to more sex, booze, drugs and sex. It’s hard to feel sorry for Hank. (Paramount)

Free Ride
A single mom (Anna Paquin) in 1970s Florida joins the drug-smuggling trade to support her daughters, and everything goes just fine. Kidding—it all goes to hell, which is what you should expect when you get into business with Drea de Matteo. (Phase 4)

The Punk Singer
Bikini Kill singer/riot grrrl pioneer Kathleen Hanna gets the full documentary treatment, with classic BK and Le Tigre concert footage, interviews and the real reason she retired in 2005. No, Drea de Matteo had nothing to do with it. (IFC Films)
