What To Watch: 01/03/2020

Amazon Prime does a Friday comedy drop, led by the shorter member of the Broad City duo. Meanwhile, a Showtime show no one has been really paying attention too, despite some star power, ends its inaugural season. We’ve also got a new Lifetime movie and that CBS Friday line-up.

BRAD’S PICK:
Ilana Glazer: The Planet Is Burning [Amazon Prime]
Ilana Glazer has kept a rather low profile since her Broad City days. That all is about to change with the release of her first stand up special. We all miss Broad City, but this special is sure to at least hit on some of the themes and have the same attitude!

JASON’S PICK:
Flack [Showtime, 10p]
Soccer is the theme of the first season finale of the sometimes wacky Anna Paquin series, as she has to get one player client to his wedding and sell another on a new scheme.

  • Amazon Prime drops a bunch of comedy hours. Along with Glazer there’s a set from an up-and-coming British comic, Jayde Adams: Serious Black Jumpsuit. And while the travelogue James May: Our Man In Japan isn’t strictly a comedy, one look at the trailer shows the British television presenter’s tongue is not entirely outside his cheek.
  • Tonight’s new Lifetime movie, A Deadly Price For Her Pretty Face, plays off our fear of the dark web as two brothers kidnap a woman to sell her on, well, you get the idea.
  • A shout out to our old souls out there as the Friday night CBS line-up returns as Frank defends the homeless community on Blue Bloods, undercovers are exposed on Hawaii Five-O, and look who shows up, why it’s Magnum P.I. and you can bet the story bleeds into the next hour.
  • Netflix quietly brings in the third and final season of the Canadian adaptation of the classic 1908 novel, Anne of Green Gables, which they have titled Anne With An E.
