This Month’s Highlights

PEN15

Perhaps the first must-see streaming comedy debut of the year, PEN15 is the brainchild of real-life best friends Anna Konkle and Maya Erskine, a show where they, as 30-something women, play 13-year-old versions of themselves in seventh grade. The messy, audacious joke, of course, is that they’re surrounded by actual seventh graders: Kids who bully them, whom they have crushes on, who turn them down when they want to go to the dance. (And don’t worry, it’s all put together in a way that doesn’t actually involve teens when things get truly uncomfortable). A bighearted show about the painful, embarrassing experience of being a teenage girl in the suburbs, PEN15 aims to carve new ground by being a little more gross, a little more vulnerable, and hopefully, more relatable than your average middle-school story. Arrives February 8.

Legion season two

A lot of ink is spilled to talk about how mind-bendy and experimental a show Legion is — and sure, that’s a real thing. The season-two premiere, for example, involves a three-way psychic dance battle between Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza, and Jemaine Clement because … well, it’s a lot more interesting than actual fight scenes, that’s why. But more than anything, Legion is just a visually inventive tragedy about a man who learns that he is unwell and tries to get the help he needs but is constantly in danger of succumbing to dark impulses that lead him toward revenge. And it hurts all the more because he’s trying so hard to be good. Season two of the X-Men spinoff excels not because of said dance battles, but because it has its sight set on this tragedy — and it makes you believe, for a long while, that it can be averted. Arrives February 3.

Three Identical Strangers

Okay, so the best way to talk about this movie is to act like I’m hearing about it for the first time right now, with you — lest I spoil something best left unspoiled. (Presuming, of course, you haven’t seen it in theaters yet.) Three Identical Strangers is, at first, about identical triplets, separated at birth, finding each other in their adult life. And then things get way more complicated, in ways that are best discovered in the film itself — unless you know the story already, considering that it, you know, happenedArrives February 26.
