Here are the episodes of shows I’ve really enjoyed this week.
And about Alec Baldwin‘s latest episode of Here’s the Thing with guest Woody Allen… I haven’t “cancelled” Woody, as many understandably have. There are so many things I do not know, and many parts of the allegations that have never tracked, despite in-depth investigations. Did I find his relationship and ultimate marriage to Soon Yi weird? Sure. But over a quarter of a century later and a couple of now college-age children together, they still seem to have a real thing. What interested me about Alec’s episode was a conversation about Woody’s craft. His prolific and consistent output astound me, and his films (most, certainly not all) are among my all-time favorites. I truly enjoyed hearing him talk about all of it, and I appreciated his candid responses to questions about the scandal all those years ago.
