Pink: All I Know So Far

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

Ever wondered what it's like to be a wife, mom of two, and an international pop star selling out stadium shows? Pink's new music documentary offers a candid glimpse into that life, following her and her family in the lead-up to her two-night show at Wembley Stadium as part of her 2019 Beautiful Trauma World Tour. Footage from rehearsals and their travels combined with behind-the-scenes interviews and personal material provides an entertaining and unique portrait of the entertainer. And you better believe there are some high-flying acrobatics! —Gerrad Hall

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

Series Debut
Truly, having actors like Anne HathawayHelen Mirren, and Uzo Aduba in any project is enticing enough. Then put them in a time machine, a spaceship, and a bio-dome respectively, and it's like, "What the heck is this show?" The answer is an anthology series about human connection, that manages to keep viewers entertained even if most of the episodes are built entirely off the performance of one actor alone in a room. —Marcus Jones

Army of the Dead

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

If you ever decide to take on a zombie mob, make sure you have Dave Bautista by your side. At least that's Ana de la Reguera's advice, who used that technique herself in Zack Snyder's highly anticipated zombie flick Army of the Dead. The duo team up with a motley crew of brave souls willing to use their skills to try and rid the world of the undead. Tig Notaro, Raúl Castillo, Omari Hardwick, Matthias Schweighofer, and Ella Purnell join forces with Bautista and de la Reguera in a battle of strength and wit against the zombie while navigating through a maze of difficult challenges. It's worth noting the warriors were grossly outnumbered by the zombies, but it helps if you invade their territory while they're enjoying a siesta. The team members consist mostly of strangers but with a lot of money on the line, it's best to stick together and focus on exiting as victors together. Though there's always the option of becoming a zombie instead, though all that will get you in exchange is a bullet in the brain. —Rosy Cordero

Master of None

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Season Premiere
It's been four long years since the last season of the Emmy-winning Netflix comedy, and much has changed. Not only has Aziz Ansari taken a step back for Lena Waithe's character Denise, the focus of the standout "Thanksgiving" episode last season, to take over as the lead, but now she has a wife named Alicia (played by Naomi Ackie). For anyone enamored by the gentle nature of the trailer, let's just say you'll be pleasantly surprised by the context of what moments are shown, and what story the show is actually telling. —MJ

In Treatment

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

Reboot Premiere
HBO's In Treatment returns for a fourth season after 11 years, with a new location and a new star. Emmy winner Uzo Aduba plays Dr. Brooke Taylor, a Los Angeles therapist treating a diverse trio of patients: Eladio (Anthony Ramos), who works as a home health aide for a wealthy family's adult son; Colin (John Benjamin Hickey), a millionaire-turned-white-collar criminal recently released from prison; and Laila (Euphoria's Quintessa Swindell), an 18-year-old struggling to carve out her own identity. Of course, Brooke's also dealing with her own personal problems, including a recent personal loss and a longtime on-again, off-again boyfriend (Joel Kinnaman). If this season is half the actors' showcase the original was, expect Emmy nods for a lot of those folks come next year. —Tyler Aquilina
