The Last Movie Stars (HBO Max)

Director Ethan Hawke brings life and color to this definitive history of their dedication to their art, philanthropy, and each other.

The Orville: New Horizons (Hulu)
It’s anyone’s guess what the crew of The Orville will get up to next week. With the various relationship shenanigans in play, the lyrics to Lou Gramm’s “Midnight Blue” (also the title of the upcoming episode) might apply:
“Ain’t got no regrets / And I ain’t losin’ track / Of which way I’m going / Ain’t gonna double back no” “Don’t want no misplay / Put on no display / An angel? No! / But I know my way, oh yeah, oh”
“Doubling back” could reference Malloy’s time paradox family. “Don’t want no misplay” is certainly applicable to Keyali and LaMarr’s complicated relationship. “An angel? No!” feels like it’s touching on Isaac and Finn’s issues. “Ain’t got no regrets / And I ain’t losin’ track” could hint at another Teleya episode.
Buckle up and hold on, folks, because if we know one thing we know about The Orville: New Horizons, it’s to expect the unexpected.
