How Much Watching Time Do You Have This Weekend?

[ad_1]

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.

‘Justified’
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.
