One Mississippi: Two Mississippi  Season 2, Ep 0

Season two of Tig Notaro's Amazon series takes us deeper into the lives of Tig's step-father, Bill, and her brother, Remy. Meanwhile, Tig continues to speak honestly on her radio show as Tig and Kate's relationship perpetually redefines itself. Politics come into play, and a Mississippi changed by the election of Trump hangs grotesquely in the background. Also, trigger warning. Very upsetting but necessary discussions of molestation, abuse, and harassment, including scenes of deplorable men being deplorable, also occur this season.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Hollywood Whitewashing, Abortion  Season 3, Ep 2

This week.... Donald Trump wins the South Carolina Republican Primary despite a feud with the Pope, and Jeb Bush finishes fourth. Republicans dig in on not confirming whatever replacement Supreme Court Justice Obama nominates. The "Judicial Crisis Network" makes an ad saying Republican senators should not confirm made mostly of smiling faces bought from stock footage sites. Last Week Tonight provides a stock footage rebuttal. How is This Still a Thing: Hollywood whitewashing. This week's main story: breast implants abortion (16m), and the stealth efforts of the right to outlaw it de facto by making it impossible in some states to operate an abortion clinic through the imposition of ridiculously onerous rules. The show finishes up with footage of a bucket of baby slothes -- and one in person, in the studio. Metafilter thread. [more inside]
