What to Watch: I turned on my first episode of Brockmire starring Hank Azaria and Amanda Peet assuming that it wouldn’t be my cup of tea. Well, I was wrong (although it’s less like a cup of tea and more like a bottle of whisky). And here’s the good news for you. You’ll know if you like it after about two and half minutes. If you’re not easily offended, definitely give it a try.
+ What to Doc: “Off The Rails tells the remarkable true story of Darius McCollum, a man with Asperger’s syndrome whose overwhelming love of transit has landed him in jail 32 times for impersonating New York City bus drivers and subway conductors and driving their routes.” And the story is even more interesting (and a lot deeper) than it sounds. You can watch it on iTunes or try out Sundance Now, where it’s also streaming.
+ What to Pilgrimage: Three diverse groups of people share their stories of making the annual pilgrimage to Bonnaroo (including a cool kid, the inspirational and awesome Bonnagrannies, and my live-music worshipping pal John Parsons.)
+ What to Shiva: Oh man, you gotta watch Jimmy Kimmel’s tribute to Don Rickles.
