What’s on TV Friday: An Ilana Glazer Stand-Up Special and ‘Little Women’


ILANA GLAZER: THE PLANET IS BURNING Stream on Amazon. The coming-of-age New York sitcom “Broad City” made stars of its creators, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson. About a year after wrapping up that show, Glazer is taking a solo turn with this stand-up special, which includes sharp observations on anti-Semitism, sexism and homophobia. She also discusses married life and, briefly, the Alfred Hitchcock classic “Rear Window” (“It was fine,” she decrees, before doing a bit on Grace Kelly’s voice).

THE KID (2019) Stream on Amazon and Hulu. Ethan Hawke plays the Old West Sheriff Pat Garrett on the hunt for Billy the Kid (Dane DeHaan) in this Western, which centers on a pair of young siblings who get caught in the middle of that hunt. The movie’s best quality by far, Jeannette Catsoulis said in her review for The New York Times, is Matthew J. Lloyd’s cinematography. “Though at times squintingly dark, his New Mexico scrub and skylines are distractingly pleasing,” Catsoulis wrote. “While marquee names wrestle with characters as insubstantial as holograms, Lloyd gives us a reason to keep watching.”
