5 women-driven series to binge watch before the Golden Globes

Orange is the New Black
If you haven’t seen Jenji Kohan’s prison dramedy, with equal parts hilarity, anguish and amazing character studies, don’t even talk to us. Season 3 is scheduled for Netflix release in 2015.

Madam Lena Dunham’s study of four melodramatic millennial besties in NYC is three seasons in. Get ready to laugh, cry and squirm at the one-liners and awkward sex scenes. The new season starts Jan 12 on HBO, Starhub Ch 601

How to Get Away with Murder
This American legal drama stars the smokin’ hot Viola Davis as a law professor who becomes entwined in a murder plot. Suspense, drama and intrigue ensues. Catch it on Universal, StarHub Ch 512

Game of Thrones
Although not female-directed (like Orange and Girls), Game of Thrones’ Daenerys and Cersei show the medieval world who’s boss. Catch it on HBO, StarHub Ch 603

The Good Wife
We’ve loved Julianna Margulies since ER, and our love has only grown since she became Alicia Florrick, a mom and wife who returns to her job as a litigator after her husband is embroiled in a sex scandal. Catch it on Diva, StarHub Ch 513

The Golden Globes will be screened on Jan 12, 9am local time, on RTL CBS (Starhub Ch 509, Singtel mioTV Ch 318).
