How Much Watching Time Do You Have This Weekend?


No matter how much free time you have this weekend, we have TV recommendations for you. Come back every week for new suggestions on what to watch.

‘Diary of a Future President’
When to watch: Starting Friday, on Disney Plus.

This wholesome coming-of-age story is told mostly in flashback; a few decades from now, the American president (Gina Rodriguez) rediscovers her childhood diary, and — whoosh! — we’re seeing her as a 12-year-old in the present day, navigating the political minefield of middle school. Tess Romero stars as the young Elena, neither a queen bee nor a social outcast; she’s a thoughtful kid, but unlike, say, “The Politician,” this isn’t about a shark-eyed striver gunning for the Oval Office since birth. Instead, think “Girl Meets World” or “Andi Mack” or even “Blossom,” with a healthy dose of “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.” thrown in.

When to watch: Now, on Amazon; on Hulu starting Sunday.

“Justified” has an A+ pilot, and the show’s second season is one of my favorite seasons of TV in the last 20 years. And everything else about the series, which ran on FX from 2010-2015, is pretty darn good, too. Timothy Olyphant stars as Raylan Givens, a United States marshal in Kentucky who wears a cowboy hat and does a lot of things his way. There are so many exhaustingly predictable cop shows, but “Justified” is textured, surprising and packed with fascinating performances. If you want a big drama that you can treasure without feeling terrible, watch this. Especially if you’re a mega fan of “The Good Place” and want to appreciate those characters’ recent enthusiasm for this show.
