What I Watched This Week: 22 Dec 2019

Saturday Night Live – “Eddie Murphy/Lizzo” (A-)
The best episode in a long time, with Murphy bringing back a bunch of classic characters, but really blowing the doors off in sketches where he’s not reliving the past. Plus, any time someone is mean to Colin & Michael, it’s good, especially when it’s Gumby.

John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch (A-)
Essentially a less anarchic Wonder Showzen, but that’s not a bad thing. A kids’ show filtered through John Mulaney’s weird mind, it’s a total delight.

Mindhunter – Season 2 (A- average)
Even better in its second season, which complicates its characters’ mission with the baffling bureaucracy they must face. Its final four episodes (directed by Carl Franklin) focus on the hunt for the Atlanta Monster, and the season ends with a feeling that even if they caught their man, there won’t be any real sense of justice for anyone.
