What To Watch: 11/27/2020

What are you doing on this most hallowed holiday–It’s Booger’s Birthday. Yes, national treasure Curtis “Booger” Armstrong, known for stealing scenes in the movies Revenge of the Nerds and Better Off Dead and on the long-running TV rom-dramedy Moonlighting, turns 66 today. Younger viewers might recognize him as Jess Day’s doofy, but kind-hearted principal on New Girl. However you celebrate BB, there’s an endless supply of viewing as you trim your Curtis Tree.

BRAD’S PICK:
The Movie Show [Syfy, 11:30p]
Puppets? Talking about movies? On SYFY? Well to be honest you had me at puppets. Added the nerd twist and this is a sure winner. First two episodes arrive tonight.

NAVANI’S PICK:
Black Beauty [Disney+]
The Anna Sewell classic is back, this time as a live action film set in the modern-day American west. Kate Winslet brings the title character alive as voiceover for the horse, who is now female in this reboot. But unchanged is the message of the healing bond between girl and animal, which is still at the heart of this long-time beloved tale.

JASON’S PICK:
Small Axe: Lovers Rock [Amazon Prime]
Steve McQueen tracks the life of a 1980 party in London in a film that is one of the best reviewed movies of 2020 so far. It slides in this unusual year as the second installment of five McQueen movies on a theme released in five weeks on Prime, but if the buzz is any indication, this clever, beautiful romance may clean up on Oscar night.

BUT, WAIT, THERE’S MORE:
