Watch this week

MONDAY

The Golden Girls, the complete series, midnight, Hulu: Maybe you were a loyal fan of The Golden Girls since its beginning in 1985 or maybe you were introduced to Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sophia by your mom or grandma and have been hooked on the golden comedy every since. Either way, the complete series arrives on Hulu today and it has never been a better time to relive Dorothy's iconic style and Sophia's "picture it: Sicily" stories. Thank you for being a friend.

Movie: Valentine's Day, 8 p.m., Lifetime: An all-star cast (Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper) weaves through the highs and lows of a single Valentine's Day. It's cheesy and sweet, but also pretty hilarious.

Humans, 10 p.m., AMC: The second-season premiere sees Niska facing a critical decision while Mia, Leo and Max remain in hiding.

TUESDAY

Bad Girls Club, 8 p.m., Oxygen: We can't believe this show has been on for 17 seasons. In the season premiere, seven new "bad girls" arrive from opposite coasts and land in L.A. to live together for another year of dirty secrets, tension and fighting.

WEDNESDAY

SERIES PREMIERE: Doubt, 10 p.m., CBS: Katherine Heigl plays a successful defense attorney who begins to fall for her client, a surgeon who might be guilty of a grisly murder.

Navy Seals: America's Secret Warriors, 8 p.m., History: Part 2 explores how SEALs were instrumental in the battle on the war on terror.

THURSDAY

Milk, 3 a.m., Netflix: Stream today the 2008 biographical film on famed gay rights activist Harvey Milk, played by Sean Penn, who became the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California. You'll want to brush up on Milk's role in the gay rights movement before ABC's When We Rise premieres Feb. 27.

Civics 101

It has been three weeks since President Trump took office, and it's safe the say the country is frantically trying to keep it together.

Even away from the heated arguments on social media and bickering on the nightly news, it's clear many still struggle to fully understand and explain how our government works.

We all could use a refresher on cabinet positions and civilian power in politics.

Enter Civics 101, which uses Trump's first 100 days in office to take listeners back to high school government class for a refresher on, well, civics.

New Hampshire Public Radio and host Virginia Prescott take some topics you probably thought were so boring in high school and present them in a way that's both informative and fun.

This is stuff you need to know, explained when it matters the most.

If you find yourself wondering what a chief of staff does, what role the White House press corps plays, how to call a congressman or congresswoman, or amend the Constitution, Civics 101 is a good place to start.

The episodes are easily digestible and feature special guests to help explain these essential roles in government and politics.

Listen on iTunes, audioboom.com and civics101podcast.org.
