Transparent [Netflix, N/A]
Yay, for season two being here. Weddings seem to bring out all the dysfunction in families and the Pfeffermans are no different. Let’s see if Maura can survive Sarah’s nuptials with her homophobic sis in the audience. Keep the drinks a coming.
The Soup [E!, 10p]
Fridays are pretty barren — this one especially so, although there’s a nice Muppet-fest on AMC and of course Transparent arrives off the cord — but we do have only two weeks left of Joel McHale poking fun at reality foibles after E! inexplicably canceled the show after a couple decades (despite their claims, the two Soups were basically the same program). Let’s savor it while we can! So meaty!
Crafts in America [PBS, 10p]
Holiday (Christmas, Kwanzaa) and Winter Traditions (um, cardinal greeting cards) are examined through the lends of celebrating through craft. Which, if you’ve been dragged through stall after stall of “Artisans” at a holiday craft fair, you know is definitely a thing. Most interesting is that the program “also” looks at the Lunar New Year, which is way more interesting than a card you send to your grandma.
