FRIDAY

Tall Girl

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Starring Ava Michelle as Jodi, the, well, tall girl in high school, the next Netflix romantic offering sees the taller-than-average teen navigate dating and self-esteem when every guy in the class is significantly shorter than her. But with the help of friends, family (Sabrina Carpenter stars as her shorter, older sister), a tall and handsome exchange student, and, of course, a makeover, Jodi begins to love herself — all six-foot one-and-a-half inches of herself. —Ruth Kinane

The Chef Show

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Season Premiere
After a fun initial string of episodes earlier this year featuring Robert Downey Jr., Tom Holland, and more, Jon Favreau and chef Roy Choi are back with Volume 2 of this entertaining, funny, and mouth-watering culinary series. In addition to Pizzana chef Daniele Uditi, Guerrilla Tacos’ Wes Avila, and chef David Chang, Favreau’s Lion King star Seth Rogen joins them in the kitchen… to some, expectedly, hilarious results. They also travel to George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch where Dave Filoni, who co-runs the upcoming Disney+ series The Mandalorian with Favreau, joins them to talk all things Star Wars and cook with fresh ingredients from the ranch. —Gerrad Hall

Undone

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Amazon Prime Video

Series Debut
BoJack Horseman stood out for its unflinching and funny narratives around addiction and depression, and now the collaborators behind it — Kate Purdy and Raphael Bob-Waksberg — have developed Undone, an animated dramedy series that continues to shed light on topics like grief and family. The show follows Rosa Salazar‘s underachiever Alma, who gets in a car crash that gives her the ability to communicate with her departed father (Bob Odenkirk). He then takes her into an elevated reality to solve his murder — and the visuals are stunning, as the show takes advantage of its rotoscope animation to build a world of magical realism. The show also shines in its delicate approach to Alma’s Mexican heritage, by exploring indigenous cultures’ perspective on mental illness. “What if this is an ancestor reaching through and telling me I’m on the wrong path and I need to make different choices?” says Purdy. “What if this is a way for me to open up and live a different kind of life?” —Rachel Yang

The Roast of Alec Baldwin

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 10 p.m. on Comedy Central

A working actor and public figure for nearly 40 years now, there are plenty of jokes to be made at Alec Baldwin’s expense. After all, the multiple Emmy winner has made his fair share of jabs at people over the years, certainly in the past few years portraying President Trump on Saturday Night Live and as the witty host of ABC’s Match Game. Now, Robert De Niro, Caitlyn Jenner, Joel McHale, Chris Redd, Jeff Ross, Caroline Rhea, Blake Griffin, and more turn their attention to Baldwin (and each other), with Will & Grace star Sean Hayes serving as Roast Master. —Gerrad Hall
