What to Watch: 05/20/2016

It’s a Friday and there’s a new show with Maria Bamford talking about her mental illness, so suffice to say, that’s got a lot of our attention tonight.

JASON’S PICK:
Lady Dynamite [Netflix]
Netflix has proven itself the champ of clever shows that confront mental illness head on, so Maria Bamford is a perfect fit. She’s never been shy about her battle with personal demons, but she’s also never had a series. This…is going to be good…and smart, and funny, and real.

NAVANI’S PICK:
Lady Dynamite [Netflix]
More funny women together, yes please. Looking forward to seeing Tig Notaro guest star!

KATHERINE’S PICK:
I Love Lucy Superstar Special [CBS, 8p]
Well, actually, this is what my parents are watching. Colorized film and television results in seeing only red. Tonight CBS presents two episodes of I Love Lucy, colorized to suit modern needs. John Wayne stars as himself in two episode, including the classic where, whoops, his slab in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre is stolen.

ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:

  • We all kinda know if there wasn’t an amazing Maria Bamford debut, Jason would be all about the Grimm season finale. #CureWu
  • Undercover Boss sends the subterfuge-ing head of company to his real estate concern to ferret out any concerns…always a fun time!
