As the film notes, basketball star Dennis Rodman worked hard to become, and remain, a celebrity, but he does not handle celebrity very well.
It’s a great special; old-school vulgar, consistently funny, and flush with the pathos that elevates good stand-up to great. But I’m worried that, largely because of Burr, no one is going to talk about it.
The series increasingly leans on the talents of its cast, particularly Jonathan Groff, as the storylines become less engaging and the plot slows.
In Hulu’s reboot, Veronica Mars is older, wiser, and as jaded as ever. The plot is just convoluted enough to keep viewers guessing too.
The themes about growing up are relatable, the nostalgia is real, and the monster-fighting remains legitimately scary. ‘Stranger Things 3’ is excellent.
It’s just too good to go on forever. Wallowing in ’80s nostalgia is healthy when done in moderation, but too much could make for disappointing outcomes.
It’s the age of the influencer, and that’s makes now as good a moment as any to revisit ‘The Hills,’ MTV’s controversial blend of truth and fiction.

If ’empowerment’ means ‘entitlement’ and feeling justified when you make consistently irresponsible decisions, Hulu’s new show ‘Shrill’ is very empowering.
Tina Fey, who created ‘Kimmy Schmidt,’ enjoys mining partisan politics for laughs, and she’s capable of doing it without using comedy as a thin pretense for DNC propaganda. Hers is a rare approach.
‘Russian Doll’ is a great watch for those long nights where you want to indulge the fantasy of getting a whole-life do-over.
‘Camping’ is worth watching, but falls short of expectations given the show’s concentration of talent.
‘Homecoming’ proves that the right combination of story, talent, and discipline can become something truly entertaining.
