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 Friends Are Important
When to watch: Season 1 arrives Friday, on Hulu
Let this sweet new comedy help fill the void left by the end of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” It may not have musical numbers, but “Dollface” does have similar trips into our heroine’s surreal fantasy world, difficult friendships and some of the same cast members (including Vella Lovell and Esther Povitsky). The show opens as the newly-single Jules (Kat Dennings) realizes she needs to rejoin the “girl world” after neglecting her friends during her five-year relationship. Some of the plot points that follow may be a little well-trodden, but “Dollface” still feels fresh thanks to the snappy writing and winking pop culture references.
… a Half-Hour, and I Want a Satisfying Ending
‘You’re the Worst’
When to watch: Now, on Hulu.
If you were a fan of the first two seasons of this acerbic little show but got lost around Season 3, I hear you. I was you, and I have some good news: The fifth and final batch of episodes, which aired on FXX earlier this year but came to Hulu last week, is a very satisfying conclusion. When the season opens, Jimmy and Gretchen (Chris Geere and Aya Cash) are finally planning their wedding, but it isn’t clear whether they’ll manage to stagger over that romantic finish line — or what it will mean if they do. This is a great show to binge, and there’s no need to go back through those forgotten middle seasons.
… 90 Minutes, and I Love Hollywood
‘Inside the Actors Studio: Laura Dern’
When to watch: Sunday, at 10 p.m., on Ovation.
Several times during this charming installment of “Inside the Actors Studio,” the camera cuts to audience members sitting open-mouthed and unblinking, transfixed by the conversation between Laura Dern and Greta Gerwig. I get it. Dern is a brilliant storyteller, and here we learn that she was kicked out of college for shooting “Blue Velvet,” that she has breakfast with Cheryl Strayed and that Martin Scorsese noticed her star potential when she was 7. Gerwig directed Dern in her coming “Little Women” adaptation, and the episode includes a previously unreleased clip from the much-anticipated movie.
