“American Vandal” (Netflix): Season 2 to Netflix’s shockingly great true crime mockumentary. The first season investigated who spray-painted phallic images on the cars of the high school faculty. Season 2 moves to a private Catholic school, where a criminal called “The Turd Burglar” has caused dozens of students to simultaneously poop themselves (laxatives in the cafeteria lemonade!). This series is far smarter, sadder and more heartfelt than a show with such a premise would suggest.
"The Bob Newhart Show" concluded 40 years ago last month with neither a whimper nor a bang. In fact, there weren't many whimpers or bangs during its six-year run. The show was reliable but never flashy, more well-oiled Honda Accord than Pontiac Firebird. In its own way, it influenced decades of television comedy.
