The first week of July was the wettest Boston has seen in 100 years. Here’s a handful of new shows to watch while you wait for the rain to let up.
Questlove of The Roots (and Late Night) produced this documentary about the 1969 Harlem Cultural Festival. With never-before-seen footage from legendary peformers like Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, and Sly and the Family Stone, it's a must-see. (Hulu)
It's better than WandaVision and it might even be better than The Falcon and the Winter Solider but I can't say because I haven't watched that one yet. (Disney+)
The best sketch comedy show going right now. If you watched Season 1, you've probably binged Season 2 already. If you haven't, what are you waiting for. And if you haven't watched either season, get into it. (Netflix)
Based on the R.L. Stine books, this one hits all the right '80 slasher/horror notes. It even has Max from Stranger Things! (Netflix)
Come for Moshow The Cat Rapper, stay for the rest of the celebration of felines and their friends. (Netflix)
Host Stephen Satterfield travels the country and the globe and dishes up the history of African American Cuisine. It's part food show, part history lesson and it's all nourishing. (Netflix)
Season 2 dropped last year, but I slept on it. Joe Pera is entertaining and authentic and funny and awkward all at once. We all need a bit of Joe Pera in our lives. (HBO Max)
