What To Watch: 05/28/2020

Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson has come a long way since flashing across the screen in Boyz II Men’s first video. Hosting a potluck is just the next natural step for America’s favorite hip-hop percussionist, and will you just look at the guest list. We’re not saying if you don’t drop in, you’re an awful person, but…

BRAD’S PICK:
Questlove’s Potluck [Food, 9p]
Questlove is giving back! He’s a hosting a potluck on the Food Network that will benefit supporting America’s Food Fund. Expect to see food served in the home kitchens of Bun B., Hannibal Buress, Zooey Deschanel and Jonathan Scott, Ashley Graham, Tiffany Haddish, Patti LaBelle, Eva Longoria, George Lopez, Amy Schumer and her husband chef Chris Fischer, Kenan Thompson, Tariq Trotter, Gabrielle Union, Olivia Wilde, Roy Wood Jr.

JASON’S PICK:
National Theatre @ Home: This House [YouTube]
This wonderful series follows up Tennessee Williams’ classic and American as hell play from the 1950s with about as UK a performance as possible. Not based on the 1991 hit by Tracie Spencer, this Bloomsbury Publishing Play of the Decade is based on true stories from 1970s Parliament.

KATHERINE’S PICK:
In The Dark [The CW, 9p]
The blind detective is halfway through a second season as this week Murphy is distracted by a spiraling Max.

  • After a college experiences two deaths, seven more students are lured into a creepy Confessional (and there we have the movie’s title) — it’s a horror flick, so we can presume the booth is not what it seems. It’s on Shudder.
  • For the second night in a row, a show uses the Friends structure for its episode title, and it’s not a coincidence b/c both had a theme surrounding the 1990s show about the six Central Perk patrons. Last night, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow had its legends crash various classic TV shows, including that one. Tonight, Celebrity Watch Party has its celebrities watch Friends.
  • A rookie cop gets teamed up with a veteran cop on the edge with nothing to lose to solve an unsolvable crime in Intuition (La Corazonado), the latest Netflix import from Argentina.
  • For our closer, we often like to go to what we call the LHV (or Lifetime-Hallmark Vortex), but today we’re gonna go to the adjacent MP (for “Murder Porn”) district for the ID Network’s latest: Who Killed The Co-Ed?: An ID Mystery. {Wiping the tears from our eyes} “…from sea… to… shi… ning… seeeeeea”
