FRIDAY

AJ and the Queen

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Series Debut
RuPaul embraces his inner child — and, in a refreshing departure from his throne behind the Drag Race judging panel — the art of lip-syncing in full drag across this playful road comedy from co-creator Michael Patrick King (The Comeback). Filled with actual queens (22 Drag Race alums costar) and cameos (hello, Jane Krakowski!), AJ follows a down-on-her-luck drag performer (RuPaul) who hits the road to make a quick buck on a nationwide tour after her boyfriend swindles her out of her life's savings. Little does she know that a 10-year-old stowaway (newcomer Izzy G.) is along for the life-changing ride, and the pair's clashing personalities (as well as RuPaul's elaborate musical numbers) makes for one of the most tender, charming, original, and outrageously hilarious television romps in recent memory. —Joey Nolfi

The Outsider

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 9 p.m. on HBO

Series Debut
A new year means a new adaptation of a Stephen King horror story. The Outsider brings the best-selling author's 2018 novel to the screen in a 10-episode miniseries event on HBO, and there are some pretty intriguing names among the cast. Viewers will get re-acquainted (in live-action form) with Det. Ralph Anderson (Rogue One's Ben Mendelsohn), who's investigating the puzzling and brutal murder of an 11-year-old in Georgia. Fingerprints belonging to a local family man and Little League coach (Ozark's Jason Bateman) were found all over the crime scene, but then there's the fact that security camera footage places him miles away from the site at the time of the slaying. How can someone be in two places at once? That's the question Ralph and his unorthodox partner-in-crime, private investigator Holly Ginny (Harriet's Cynthia Erivo), are trying to figure out. We can't get into any specifics at the risk of spoiling this mystery, but given that this is a Stephen King tale, it's safe to presume there's something seriously sinister behind it all. King himself called The Outsider series "one of the best adaptations of my work." You can't argue with the man himself. —Nick Romano
