OUR CARTOON PRESIDENTNew episodes Sundays at 8 p.m. ET starting February 11
Late night host Stephen Colbert has never been afraid to tackle politics and now the comedian is bringing his sharp wit and hilarious monologues to the world of animation. Taking on the comedy goldmine that is the Trump administration, Our Cartoon President is a hilarious and sometimes scarily relevant look at President Trump, his administration and his family. It’s like Veep, but animated, more outrageous, and sadly, pretty accurate. href="http://www.cravetv.ca/">CraveTV
EDDIE GRIFFIN: UNDENIABLEFebruary 9
What’s the best way to celebrate thirty years in comedy? For Eddie Griffin, it’s releasing a new Showtime comedy special and displaying exactly why he’s had the chops to make it three decades in a brutal business. Taking on everything from relationships, to slavery, to immigration, Griffin’s views on humanity as a whole are front and centre and funnier than ever in his latest comedy special.CraveTV
GAME OF THRONES Seasons 1-3February 16
Game of Thrones won’t be airing its seventh and final season until April 2019, so now is the best time to either start watching the award-winning HBO series or relive the drama from the beginning. With all six seasons of Game of Thrones coming to CraveTV throughout 2018, fans can go back to the beginning when every character we liked (and loathed) was still alive, dragons were simply a myth, and Arya Stark’s list of people to kill only included one name.HBO Canada
GIRLS: Seasons 1-6February 9
Lena Dunham’s ground-breaking series about four 20-something female friends living in New York City couldn’t be further from its predecessor Sex and the City, and that’s even with both protagonists being sexually active writers. From outgrowing your childhood friends, to trying to figure out what you’re really supposed to be doing with the rest of your life, there were few stones left unturned by the Judd Apatow produced dramedy. Raw, emotional, frustrating, heartfelt and hilarious, the cast of Girls had a little something for every viewer. The series made stars out of Dunham, Allison Williams, Adam Driver and Andrew Rawnells and gave a voice to a new generation of women looking for their place in mainstream media.HBO Canada
THE TRADEFebruary 2
Premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the Showtime five-part docu-series The Trade shines a light on the devastating opioid crisis in the United States. Oscar nominated director Matthew Heineman gains unprecedented access, focusing his cameras on the people most affected by the damaging drugs, including the addicts, growers, cartel bosses and law enforcement officials.CraveTV

ERIC CLAPTON: LIFE IN 12 BARSFebruary 10

Starting with his traumatic childhood, Clapton reflects on his years of drug and alcohol abuse, the loss of his son, and how he was able to survive the direst moments in his life thanks to music.Showtime
U2: LIVE IN LONDON, THE DIRECTOR’S CUTFebruary 16
It’s been 21 years since U2 released their iconic Joshua Tree, which makes this the perfect time for the Irish foursome to revisit the record. In their latest concert doc, U2 perform at the legendary Abbey Road Studios and prepare for their 2017 Joshua Tree tour. Featuring performances not originally included in the broadcast special of U2: Live in London, as well as behind the scenes footage of the band preparing to hit the road once again, this new Director’s Cut edition is a must-see for any fan of the seminal rock band.Getty Images
THE YOUNG POPEFebruary 23 – Season 1
If you’re looking for a series that gives an insider’s perspective on Pope Francis, this isn’t it. If you’re looking for a deliciously dark drama about the first American pope, a man who uses his powerful position to set about a conservative upheaval in the Catholic Church, this is your new favourite show. Starring Diane Keaton as a nun and Jude Law as the young pope (who would easily increase attendance at mass), the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated series is The Handmaid’s Tale version of the Catholic Church. Scary and extreme, but it could happen if we’re not careful.HBO Canada
