This weekend I’ve … 10 minutes, and I’m crabby.
When to observe: Now, on HBO Max.
Grownup Swim simply renewed this peppy, deranged cartoon for a second season, and now all eight episodes of its first season are streaming on HBO Max. The present follows Charlie and Pim, two workers at an organization that vows to place smiles on its shoppers’ faces, and there’s a cheery grotesquerie to most episodes. “Smiling Associates” looks like a cross between the earnest strangeness of “Aqua Teen Starvation Power” and the procedural type of “Cupcake and Dino.” Should you’re the type of one that feels heat sunshine in your coronary heart when a girl shrimp is known as “Shrimpina,” watch this.
… 35 minutes, and I’m wistful.
When to observe: Friday at 8 p.m., on ESPN.
This documentary is an attention-grabbing if hurried take a look at Whitney Houston and her efficiency of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Tremendous Bowl XXV in 1991. (Friday is the tenth anniversary of Houston’s loss of life, and Tremendous Bowl LVI is Sunday.) “Anthem” covers each the social context of the second — Operation Desert Storm had simply begun — and the creative context, with the music director Rickey Minor explaining how he organized the anthem to greatest swimsuit Houston’s type. Put together to be struck by how naïve and historic every part and everybody in 1991 immediately appear.
… just a few hours, and I like reboots.
When to observe: Debuts Sunday, on Peacock.
What started as a viral video in 2019 is now a full-on reboot of “The Contemporary Prince of Bel-Air,” eliminating practically the entire authentic’s humor and changing it with the glossy bleakness of recent dramas. Jabari Banks stars as Will, who, as within the authentic, is from West Philadelphia and will get in “one little struggle” that frightens his mom, who sends him to stay together with his aunt, uncle and cousins in California. Every part is impressively carried out if vaguely inessential; “Bel-Air” suits in high-quality with “All American” or the reboot of “Gossip Woman,” moody and well-intentioned, and hey, all of us like when any person will get pushed right into a pool throughout a struggle at a celebration. The primary three episodes arrive Sunday, and the subsequent seven arrive Thursdays after that.
