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.
This Weekend I Have … a Half-Hour, and I Want a Tween Show
‘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.
… an Hour, and I Love a Cloaca Joke
‘Rob Delaney: Jackie’
When to watch: Arrives Friday, on Amazon.
If you miss “Catastrophe,” watch this new stand-up special from the writer and comedian Rob Delaney, which is full of feelings and filth. Delaney covers parenthood, the differences between the American and British health care systems, the dumb documentaries we all wind up watching and the apparent joys of tending to a bearded dragon. Delaney’s sunny shamelessness makes even the dirtiest parts of his act feel somehow wholesome, and suddenly masturbating in rehab with two broken arms is a triumph of hearty determination, an ode to a can-do spirit.
… Many Hours, and I Want a Binge
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.
