Set in New York City, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” follows the detectives of the Special Victims Unit. Because it’s full of twists, turns, and surprises (that are sometimes inspired by real-life cases), it’s no surprise that the show has been a TV staple since the start of the millennium.

Take a look inside the life and times of Larry David in this side-splitting, cringe-worthy, and absolutely mind-boggling watch on HBO Max.

“Curb Your Enthusiasm” offers situational humor and a cast of vibrant characters that can crack up any Capricorn. This sign is sure to be drawn to David’s dry sense of humor and hyper-realistic, if not cynical, views on everyday life and society.

‘Bob’s Burgers’ (2011 - Present)

Follow Bob, Linda, Tina, Gene, and Louise Belcher as they try to keep their family and their family restaurant afloat.

As a sign that’s very family-oriented, Capricorns will love “Bob’s Burgers” as a fun comfort watch available on Hulu. Despite the Belcher Family’s wild antics, each episode ends with them coming together and showing their love and appreciation, in a non-mushy way.

‘Veep’ (2012 - 2019)

In this quick-witted comedy series on HBO Max, a former senator (played by lovely Capricorn Julia Louis-Dreyfus) discovers that being the vice president of the U.S. isn’t everything she hoped it would be.

Capricorns will love “Veep” for its relatability. Every episode follows VP Selina Meyer as she puts out a variety of political fires, something that Capricorns are sure to relate to.

Just because they’re practical doesn’t mean a Capricorn won’t enjoy this unlikely love story! Available on Amazon Prime Video with an AMC Plus subscription, “Pretty Woman” is a timeless classic about a man who hires an escort to accompany him at some social events, and despite their differences, the two fall in love.

For a sign whose first love might be their job, Capricorns will love how “Pretty Woman” is a modern-day Cinderella story about two entrepreneurs from opposite sides of the tracks.

A classic thriller, Capricorns will love adding this movie to their Hulu watchlist for its take on the dangers of blind ambition and a hunger for power.

For the Capricorn who wants to get their blood pumping and their brains turning, look no further than Jordan Peele’s “Us.” In the movie, the Wilsons’ fun, relaxing beach vacation goes awry when their rental home is invaded by their mysterious (and murderous) doppelgängers.

Capricorns are used to having the sharpest minds in the room, so they’ll be pleasantly surprised that this movie can keep them on the edge of their seats.
