The parade of unlikely, late-arriving, and somewhat head-scratching sequels continues–although, we’ll admit for the most part we’re princely levels of charmed at the return of Amy Adams’ princess. We’re also rec’ing Ryan Gosling yuletide joy and Kristen Bell indie snark. JASON’S PICK:The People We Hate … Continue reading What To Watch: 11/18/2022
Streaming Friday is getting out of hand as we’ve got a comedy by one of Screen Scholars’ favorite comic femme fatales, a long-awaited adaptation of a classic sci-fi series, Paul Hollywood doling out disapproving head shakes (and the occasional handshake) for a 12th series of … Continue reading What To Watch: 09/24/2021
Welcome to another tardy trailers round-up! I’ve brought literally all the sass in New York City, so buckle up, because I have a lot of disdain. (But The Long Dumb Road looks great!) You do you, America, and if you have Monday off, treat yourself … Continue reading Box Office Weekend: Friday, November 9th, 2018
We’re all in agreement about what we all should be doing tonight. Getcha popcorn (and Terrell Owens/Michael Jackson memes) ready and binge yourself on the second series of Netflix’s re-imagining of a cult-ly popular 1980s women’s wrestling league. KATHERINE’S PICK: GLOW [Netflix] GLOW, the second best … Continue reading What to Watch: 06/29/2018
Tonight we examine two returning shows that couldn’t be more different, but they’re both definitions of the return of cool in their own particular manner. Side note: the HL’d Luke Cage trailer makes use of one of the best hip-hop intro songs of all time. BRAD’S PICK: … Continue reading What to Watch: 06/22/2018
Shotputter Michelle Carter’s run to the 2016 Games of the Summer in Rio has been so epic that both original hip-hop kids and British bakers are taking notice. Working without a segue, the Screen Scholars have a bunch of shows to suggest right to your door. … Continue reading What to Watch: 08/12/2016
Look to the stars (or our site) for more from Navani Otero on our clear top pick of the night in a few hours, but here’s what we got on a relatively quiet July night. NAVANI’S PICK: East Los High [Hulu] Our favorite skonkas and … Continue reading What to Watch: 07/15/2016
So it’s not the most crowded of days tonight, but you don’t have to watch videos of old local commercials as a break from the news of the day, here’s a couple movies (then some shows) you can watch. JASON’S PICK: Crank 2: High Voltage [IFC, 8p] No, … Continue reading What to Watch: 07/08/2016
There’s a surprising lot of options if you’re in for a binge or an a la carte as you prep for the 4th weekend – or even more if you’re doing nothing, why are we assuming, we’ve no particular plans. Why, are you having a barbecue … not that we’re hinting or anything.
Brett Gelman’s Dinner in America [Cartoon, 12a]
It’s a satire with bite (sorry!) of that particular brand of indie talkfest where a celebrity invites friends for dinner and cutting conversation, always-provocative comedian Brett Gelman invites four distinguished African-American actors for a discussion that willfully goes off the rails. There’s probably a point at its end, but there’s gonna be a lot of awkwardness before we get there.
Well now that the season finale of Orphan Black has left a big, huge gaping hole in my programming schedule I’m on the hunt for another British-born thriller with a woman protagonist. Enter the new series Marcella, about a London detective struggling to keep her personal and professional life together. Yay for cop drama and accents!
Gone with the Wind [TCM, 9:15p]
Make sure Seamless arrives by 9, because the Scarlett O’Hara epic is long.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- It’s the first of dueling NFL in-depth behind-the-scenes team profiles. Amazon brings us All or Nothing, the story of last year’s NFC runners-up, the Arizona Cardinals – so by the title’s logic, it was “nothing.”
- Netflix truly desires to chart your July couch potato life, with debuts including the second season of 14th Century period piece Marco Polo, sci-fi headscratcher Between (also in its second go-around), to go along with the aforementioned debut of the latest in the line of British detectives trying to solve crimes while their life crashes around them, Marcella.
- If interplanetary bounty hunters is your bag, Space brings you the return of Killjoys for its second season debut.
- For those who love baking shows, but can’t stand the yelling, we absolutely adore the British gentility of The Great British Baking Show which returns for season three on PBS.
