What To Watch: 06/12/2019

One of the greatest living directors presents one of the greatest living rock stars for a Netflix special. Hockey’s season ends one way or another with either Boston or St. Louis hoisting the over-century old trophy. The CW’s charming-est program goes penultimate on us. A soupy pillar of our community counts cards. It’s a cliche, but there really does seem to be something for just about everyone tonight.

BRAD’S PICK:
Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story By Martin Scorsese [Netflix]
Martin Scorsese’s trippy Dylan documentary on the Rolling Thunder Review hits Netflix today. It’s over two hours of Dylan through the eyes of a master filmmaker. It’s every bit as epic as you might think. Watching is believing.

KATHERINE’S PICK:
NHL Stanley Cup Game 7 [NBC, 8p]
It’s game seven in what one assumes must certainly be the last, final game between the Blues and the Bruins. If it feels like an eternity, it is: The Caps had the cup by now last year, and the Cup is so bored it filled itself with milk for a Hot Ones segment on last night’s Fallon.

FIONA’S PICK:
Jane The Virgin [The CW, 9p]
Jane wants to take Petra out for a ladies night to help distract her from JR, Rafael wants to go in a different direction with Mateo’s treatment and Rogelio is convinced that River is plotting her revenge.

  • Both classic card-based game shows have returned in the 2010s as Snoop Dogg’s iteration of The Joker’s Wild is joined by the Joel McHale era of Card Sharks. As with most prime time games, it’s on ABC. Alec Baldwin also returns with The Match Game to make drunken celebrities fill in the blanks hoping randos have the same answers so the latter can win money.
  • He is, he is superman, and he can do anything… which includes have yet another show about him. Syfy’s prequel-y Krypton isn’t really about him (even if he is really vain) but it returns for a second season tonight.
  • Speaking of vanity, Sutton Foster’s show where she plays a mom lying about her age has now made it to six seasons, and despite rumors of a Paramount landing, Younger is still on TV Land.
  • One of television’s hidden gems — in spite of its creator being Ava Duvernay and its patron being the most powerful woman in the world — Queen Sugar comes back for a fourth season on Oprah’s OWN.
