There aren’t a ton of new movies and TV shows debuting this week, but no worries: There’s still plenty of good stuff to watch during your downtime. From season finales (American Horror Story) to oldies-but-goodies playing on television (Trainwreck), here are the 13 things you should make time for this week.

Sunday, November 12

No Activity: Based on the popular Australian series with the same name, this Will Ferrell-produced show centers on four duos navigating a drug cartel bust: two cops, two criminals, two dispatch workers, and two Mexican tunnelers. If this show steers clear of racial stereotypes, it has the potential to be very funny. Streams Sundays on CBS All-Access

How I Met Your Mother, Seasons 1-9: All nine seasons of this iconic CBS sitcom leave Netflix tomorrow. Watch them now while you can. Leaving Netflix tomorrow

Monday, November 13

Ill Behaviour: This popular BBC show is finally available to American audiences. It centers on a group of people who try to reason with their friend (Chris Geere) when he decides to stop undergoing chemotherapy treatments in favor of more unconventional cancer-killing methods. Lizzy Caplan also stars. 10:30 P.M. ET on Showtime

Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed: C’mon, you know 13-year-old you wants to watch this movie. Sarah Michelle Gellar as Daphne is just too much. Available on Netflix

Future Man: Josh Hutcherson plays a janitor by day and gamer by night in this whacky, time-traveling comedy from Seth Rogen. Streaming on Hulu
