How much viewing time do you have this weekend?


“Primal by Genndy Tartakovsky”
When to watch: Now on HBO Max or the Adult Swim site.

This cartoon about a caveman and a dinosaur and their episodic adventures has the heart-pounding violence of a pulpy sci-fi anthology, the spooky mysticism of an elaborate fantasy epic, the beats of a weird couple comedy, and the emotional depth of a modern lyric. mini-series. Everything is said without dialogue and with an animation style so simple that it almost looks like storyboarding. No show does more with less.

The second season of “Primal” premiered Thursday at midnight, and it picks up with the exact cliffhanger where Season 1 left off; start at the beginning and stick to it. If you’re still thinking about the prehistoric flashback opener from season 2 of “The Leftovers,” watch this. Even though some shots have an angry “Jungle Book” air, the show is way too scary and sad for young viewers.

‘The other’
When to watch: Now on Acorn.

In Season 1 of this catchy Britcom, half-sisters Cat and Cathy (Lauren Socha and Ellie White) only learn of each other’s existence after their father’s death, and then they and their mothers form a unit. ad hoc eccentric family. In season 2, which arrived on Monday, they learn more about their late father’s secrets and possible other branches of the family tree. What could be the setup for a murky relationship drama instead becomes a bright and endearing comedy, lively but still airy and fun. If you like hearing different people say Callum’s name, watch this.

‘Soufflé’
When to watch: Season 3 arrives Friday, on Netflix.

Fans of serious, skill-based reality TV shows like ‘The Great British Baking Show’ have plenty to enjoy with this glass-blowing contest, practically brimming with friendliness and earning bonus points for its episodes. half an hour. It’s painfully low-budget — winners receive a paltry $60,000 as prizes, while on Amazon, “Making the Cut” winners take home $1 million — but it’s also the only show where you’ll hear a guest judge complaining that the candidates’ work is “too didactic”. I don’t know why “Blown Away” insists on keeping its pattern segments so forced and clunky, but the participants and their techniques remain fascinating.
