Tune in Tonight: ‘Fantasmas’ arrives on Max

0

A comedy that defies description, “Fantasmas” streams on Max. It follows creator, writer and star Julio Torres through a torrent of events that unfold with the logic of dreams and hallucinations. A loose description involves a search for a lost earring, but that’s like saying “Alice in Wonderland” is about following a rabbit down a hole.

Normally, when a movie’s or series’ plot synopsis contains the words “paid assassin,” my attention begins to wander. I’m just not that into hit men. So shoot me.

Blending sports and soap operas can be tricky. The audience for athletics sticks to games, while fans of melodrama can’t abide jock culture. This was certainly true of “Friday Night Lights,” a beautifully done and elegiac NBC series about Texas football culture that wowed critics and attracted few viewers. The HBO series “Winning Time” managed to generate comedy, mainly because of its effervescent star, John C. Reilly.

Tune in Tonight: ‘Ren Faire’ arrives; Nicole Brown Simpson recalled

It’s been a while since I read or studied Shakespeare’s “King Lear,” but I recall the part about the ailing monarch dividing his realm among his three daughters and their husbands. Two of them (Goneril and Regan) butter him up with florid speeches, while Cordelia replies quite modestly that she simply loves him as a daughter should. Lear falls for the flatterers and mistakes Cordelia’s reticence and reluctance to lay on the praise as an insult, a decision with tragic results.

Jessica Lange stars in the title role in the 2024 TV drama “The Great Lillian Hall” (8 p.m., HBO, TV-14). Described at least once as “the first lady of the American stage,” Hall is deep into preparations for her latest drama when she begins to succumb to memory loss and confusion.

Tune in Tonight: ‘Lady Parts’ returns on Peacock

0

After a considerable wait, the audacious U.K. comedy “We Are Lady Parts” returns for a second season, streaming on Peacock. For the uninitiated, “Parts” is a romantic comedy built on a pile of seeming contradictions. Set in an unfashionable section of London, the show follows a group of bold young Muslim women who form a punk band whose name provides the series’ title.
