What To Watch: 05/27/2022

It’s one of those shiny, happy, nerdy Disney days as another Star Wars offshoot drops at Disney+–the Death Star of nerd pop culture. In fact, it’s such a crazy Streaming Friday that one of our one-time favorites gets also-ran status in our rec’s section. Sorry Demagorgon!

Obi-Wan Kenobi [Disney+]
Obi-Wan is here! the very hyped Disney+ show has two episodes ready to stream. It’s the untold story of Obi when he was on the run and looking after Luke from afar. Ewan Mcgregor and is back in the staring role. And Hayden Christiansen is back as the iconic Darth Vader. Oh come on you knew this already. Fingers crossed it’s as good as The Mandalorian.

We Feed People [Disney+]
Unlike some well-off celebrities {cough: Elon Musk}, chef Jose Andres has put his money where his mouth is concerning world hunger. This new Disney+ special looks into Andres’ philanthropic trips around the world.

RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars 7 [VH1, 8p]
Last week we were blessed with not one but two amazing episodes including the highest rated Snatch Game episode in Drag Race history. This week the queens are making looks for a ball. I wonder if they all came prepared with basic sewing skills this time around? I’m particularly excited to see what Shea and Jaida design!


  • We return to the Upside Down after three years–although I think we’ve only moved a couple years in our beleaguered youngsters 1980s world. Netflix moneymaker Stranger Things returns for more thrills even if we think it jumped the shark with the demise of Barb.
  • If you’re greatest hope was that Letterkenny would create a 6-episode community hockey-themed spinoff, well, first, you’re going to be very happy about the debut of Shoresy tonight on Hulu. Second, that is a very specific greatest hope.
  • The world’s worst boss indulges in his ability to get famous people into motor vehicles so they can sing a long at the top of their voices once more. Carpool Karaoke: The Series shows up for a fifth season on Apple TV today.
  • If you just can’t get enough Queen, the monarch not the band, this Showtime documentary, Roger Mitchell’s final film, Elizabeth: A Portraint in Part(s) should sate that need. Hell, if you’re a fan of the Freddie Mercury band, you just might like it too.
  • British comedian Iain Stirling gets the hourlong special treatment with Iain Stirling: Failing Upwards. It’s on Prime and looks delightfully self-deprecating.
  • We’ll close (like we do) in the Lifetime-Hallmark Vortex, where we have just one offering, but it’s a Lifetime Movie and it looks like a good ‘un. The title is Mom Made Me Do It and we’ll just leave you to ponder what it is.
