I’m not quite ready to ditch my sandals just yet, but I’d happily spend more time inside – there’s so much to look at and listen to, after all.
So count me in for the new Hulu series “The Patient” in which Carell stars as a therapist whose patient (played by Domhnall Gleeson) takes him hostage, confesses to being a serial killer, and demands to be cured of his murderous ways.
Sounds pretty easy, right?
It’s streaming on Hulu now.
‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ Season 3
I love how, after all these years, there’s still more of the “Star Trek” universe to explore.
In this animated series, the support crew of the USS Cerritos spacecraft are told their stories. Season 3 finds the ship seized and the crew demanding justice for its captain, as well as engaged in all sorts of other interplanetary hijinks.
Science fiction, comedy and animation form an entertaining trio.
The first two episodes of the new season are streaming on Paramount+.
“The Boleyns: A Scandalous Family”
A longtime Tudorphile here, so this new PBS series suits me just fine.
A three-part historical documentary, “The Boleyns: A Scandalous Family” traces the meteoric rise – and equally seismic fall – of the Boleyn family in Tudor England.
Two things to listen to
‘The sick, the dying… and the dead!‘ by Megadeth
Thrash metal heavyweights Megadeth make sense with album titles and their latest is no exception.
“The sick, the dying… and the dead!” is their last record and no, it’s not about the pandemic.
If anyone can rock that, it’s Megadeth.
The album is out now.

“The difference here is that I thought and felt this record so deeply,” he wrote. “I went to a part of myself that I didn’t know was there.”
The album is also out now.
Something to talk about
My mom is a huge fan of TLC’s “Sister Wives” reality TV series. Therefore, I have been kept up to date with its star Kody Brown and his family. (TLC is also owned by CNN’s parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery.)
“I can live my life for myself,” said the 50-year-old. “My whole world has changed and every cell in my body is happier.”
One of the most interesting things to me about “Sister Wives” was the concept of multiple wives sharing the same husband and merging their families. Well, it turns out Brown, who shares six kids with her ex, has lost interest in that kind of life.
“I started to think maybe it wasn’t working for me,” she said. “And then I stopped believing in polygamy. I realized I didn’t really want to experience it anymore. I didn’t like sharing a husband or feeling like I wasn’t important.”
The importance of finding what makes you happy cannot be overstated. Good luck to her.
something to sip
I love this time for Solange Knowles.
The multi-talented, multi-hyphenate designer spreads her art more than ever.
“Documentation with still photography has always been very important,” she told the publication. “In order for this work to endure, be archived and shared throughout history, I had us redo this performance without an audience to capture how the energetic force of the performance has changed.”
Being Beyoncé’s younger sister can’t be easy, so I’m thrilled to see Knowles etch her own legacy in the arts.
