What to watch, according to your favorite on-screen moms


    THIS Mother’s Day, invite your family to step into your world for the day with the onscreen moms you love the most — from Ali and Lorelai to Joyce and Jean. No matter your favorite, we’ve got reco-mom-dations for you:

    Lorelai of “Gilmore Girls”

    Fueled by caffeine and frozen pizza, you’re quick with a joke, but even quicker to offer up a shoulder to cry on. While you’re a mom first, best friend is a close second.

    Here’s what Lorelai likes: “Atypical,” “Jane The Virgin,” “20th Century Women” and “Holiday In the Wild.”

    Joyce of “Stranger Things”

    You’ll do whatever it takes to protect your kids, even if it means taking matters into your own hands.

     “Locke & Key,” “Raising Dion,” “Good Girls” and “I Am Mother” are Joyce’s choice.

    Frankie of “Grace & Frankie”

    You’re a free spirit who takes your parenting cues from Mother Nature and your shahman. While you might not be PTA president, no one can compete with you when it comes to arts and crafts.

    On Frankie’s playlist are “La casa de las flores,” “Sex Education,” “The Goop Lab” and “Absurd Planet.”

    Ali Wong

    You keep it real AF, and that means embracing all parts of motherhood: the good, the bad, and the Asian pear underwear. She will watch “Train to Busan,” “Homecoming,” “Roma” and “Stranger Things.”

    Jen of “Dead to Me”

    You hold it together for your kids, even when it’s not so easy. Thankfully there’s death metal, white wine, and not so subtle sarcasm to get your through the day. For Jen, “Workin’ Moms,” “Russian Doll,” “Grace & Frankie” and “After Life” are her shows.

    Dr. Jean Milburn of “Sex Education”

    Like sex, parenting is a natural part of life that should be approached with openess and a curious mind, even though your kids might appreciate a little more discretion.

    Expect Dr. Jean to see “Birthmarked,” “Sex, Explained,” “Unnatural selection,” “100 Humans: Life’s Questions. Answered” and “The Politician.”
