Episode Recaps

I Am Sam gets the High Concept award for making boomers smile while attracting the young ‘uns — wall-to-wall Beatles covers by the likes of the Wallflowers, the Black Crowes, Eddie Vedder, and others. Even if there are few radical reinterpretations (Chocolate Genius’ ”Julia” is a notable exception), these songs are like old friends. Particularly nifty are Paul Westerberg’s doleful ”Nowhere Man” and Grandaddy’s easy-rolling ”Revolution.” Best of all, you don’t even need to see the movie to enjoy it.
