(Baby-)Sitting With Becoming You

Omar Gallaga is back for Apple TV+'s new child-development docuseries, plus Joe Pera Talks With The Canon and a mystery Game Time!

It might not be Olivia Colman’s highest-profile streaming series this week, but Apple TV+’s Becoming You, which explores how the first 2000 days of our lives shape our futures, is perfectly on-brand: expensive, gorgeously shot, and not quiiiiite essential. Omar returns to the guest chair to talk about the series’ limited concept of diversity; whether the show made him miss his kids’ first years; and what a visual subtweet of Brooklyn parents looks like. After that, we moved on to Colman’s other big gig in Around The Dial as Tara talked about The Crown (plus Candy Land, and alas, there’s no crossover event there…yet) before the rest of us made stops at The Animal Rescue Show and SVU‘s odious season premiere. Suley asked us to script a Jack McCoy rant for Extra Credit, and then Tara Talked To Us about a first-season Joe Pera Talks To You episode about The Who (“second base!”). Alec Baldwin and Kelsey Grammer won; COVID production shutdowns lost; and we curled up with cozy murders (and gardening ghosts) in Game Time. Insert your own “baby bunting” joke here: it’s an all-new Extra Hot Great!
