Families, food and fun. Or drama, too much booze and canceled flights.
‘Euphoria’ Season 2
Season two of “Euphoria” begins Sunday on HBO Max (which is owned by CNN’s parent company).

George Clooney directed this drama, which debuts Friday on Amazon Prime.
‘The Lost Daughter’
Clooney isn’t the only actor vying for awards season as a director.

The psychological drama is currently streaming on Netflix.
Two things to listen to
Get ready for The Weeknd.
Yes, the weekend as in Saturday and Sunday, but also the artist The Weeknd, who is dropping new music on Friday.
“Dawn FM” is the follow-up to 2020’s critically acclaimed “After Hours.”
His new album, “Mamaru,” is out Friday, and it’s his 14th studio album, thank you very much.
If the lead single, “Blame It on the Edit,” is any indication, RuPaul is coming for any and all who run afoul with his special mix of wit and reading.
One thing to talk about
The sixth and final season kicked off this week for the show most likely to make you go through a half a box of tissues per episode.
And while we feel all the feels, know that we aren’t the only ones.
Some of the stars have talked about how the NBC drama has also touched them deeply as well.
Because that’s what good television does — it draws you in and reminds you of the humanity in us all.
Something to sip on
The preponderance of celebrities testing positive for Covid-19 is a reminder that the coronavirus doesn’t care anything about who you are or where you are.
Celebrities are people, just like the rest of us, and the worldwide pandemic is a great equalizer in many ways.
While this may feel like March or April of 2020 all over again, remember that we now have vaccines and boosters to help mitigate the severity of infections.
So, please stay safe and do all that you can to make sure you protect yourself and others.
