This is what is happening in the world of television for Sunday, February 21. All times are Eastern.
Bob’s Burgers (Fox, 9 p.m., mid-season premiere): It is gloomy, dear readers. But hey, the burger of the day awaits you, so that’s a good thing! Correct?
This Valentine-themed winter premiere was originally scheduled for last week, but assuming there aren’t any major car races, it should finally air tonight. As the extraordinary recapper Les Chappell, we can’t wait.
Allen V. Farrow (HBO, 9 p.m., limited release of the documentary series): “HBO Allen V. Farrow It is an overwhelming documentary series; its emotional intensity should be accompanied by an activation warning. The documentary series looks at allegations of sexual abuse against Oscar-winning director Woody Allen made by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow in 1992, when she was just 7 years old. This case has been overly covered in the media for decades, but Allen V. Farrow tries to go beyond the headlines by featuring intimate interviews with Dylan, his mother Mia Farrow (Allen’s ex-partner), brothers Ronan and Fletcher Farrow, as well as other family friends, witnesses, experts, journalists and investigators. For the most part, the documentary series is a powerful undertaking. Giving Dylan a safe space to recount traumatic experiences, he plunges into the den of Farrow-Allen’s custody battle and finds out more about Allen’s marriage to Mia’s adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn. More importantly, it acts as a damning mirror for the society that allowed Allen to prosper after the allegations turned into a major public scandal. ” Read the rest of Saloni Gajjar’s pre-air review here. The four-part series will air weekly on Sundays.
