Watch This If … Your Favorite Song Is ‘The Best’
‘Schitt’s Creek’ and ‘Best Wishes, Warmest Regards: A Schitt’s Creek Farewell’
When to watch: Tuesday at 8 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., on Pop TV.
Nothing gold can stay, bébés, and thus we bid farewell to our beloved Rose family, et al., with the series finale of “Schitt’s Creek.” It’s David and Patrick’s wedding day, and as with all sitcom weddings, things go wackily off course before resolving to something beautiful and poignant. While this is kind of the worst possible time for a hopeful, sustaining comedy to end, I’m still glad to see “Schitt’s” bring it in for a gentle landing. Shows end! All we can hope for is that they end well, and this one does.
… You Have Strong Feelings About Politics
‘The Good Fight’
When to watch: Season 4 starts Thursday, on CBS All Access.
“The Good Fight” is one of the rare shows that directly addresses our exact political moment, and on the Season 4 premiere, that kicks into hyperdrive when Diane (Christine Baranski) wakes up in a world where Hillary Clinton is president but the #MeToo movement has not happened. My favorite thing about “The Good Fight” is that it flexes so many different muscles: Some episodes are zippy legal thrillers, some are quirky character portraits, some are prickly satires, and some, like this one, are clever dream sequences. If you’re in the market for a smart drama and a lawyer show that’s not a procedural, watch this.
… You Need a Nutritious Show for Kids
‘Molly of Denali’
This series follows Molly, a 10-year-old Alaskan Native girl who likes vlogging and exploring the outdoors. She learns about her heritage and also about being a good friend and a conscientious member of society. The show is comfortable talking about big feelings and isn’t afraid of real depth, so in addition to its earnest charms, there are also some genuinely compelling narratives. I will warn you, though, that the theme song is very catchy.
