1) “The Dick Van Dyke Show – Now in Living Color,” 8 p.m., CBS. For the second straight Friday, CBS has two episodes of this great series, with color added by computer. This pair – which also aired in 2018 – has one of the show’s flashback delights (shown here): Richie asks his parents where he came from; he soon gets a long account of the misadventures leading up to his birth. Then there’s a vacation that goes bizarrely wrong: Among other things, Laura (Mary Tyler Moore) has her toe stuck in the bathtub.
2) “Cruella,” anytime, Disney+ (but only via Premier Access). An epic film arrives simultaneously in theaters and on this streaming service … but only for people who pay the extra fee. Emma Stone plays a troubled orphan, re-inventing herself to battle the baroness (Emma Thompson). The result is as ambitious – and, alas, as long — as a superhero thriller, filled with dazzling visuals. It’s over-the-top at times (even by summer-movie standards), but mostly remains immensely entertaining.
3) More streaming. The first two “Kominsky Method” seasons on Netflix drew Emmy nominations for Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin; the second was also nominated for best comedy series. Arkin isn’t returning for this third and final season, but Kathleen Turner arrives as Douglas’ ex-wife. That’s on a weekend that also has international crime dramas. Netflix has a movie from Mexico (“Blue Miracle”) and a series from Israel (“Blackspace”); Amazon Prime has a series from Spain (“Parot”).
4) “Great Performances: Inside the Met” conclusion, 9 p.m., PBS. Financial issues are dizzying here. A single piece Da Vinci painting cost $60 million … and the Metropolitan Museum of Art – 2.3 million square feet – has lots of pieces. This film was made when COVID cut both its attendance and on-site staff each to 20 percent. It has fascinating glimpses (including people who loaned their personal collections), but tucks them alongside rambling, abstract comments that should have been edited.
5) ALSO: The TV season officially ended Wednesday, but a few shows aren’t into reruns yet. That includes “The Blacklist” at 8 p.m. on NBC, “Dynasty” at 9 p.m. on CW and the basketball play-offs everywhere: ESPN has two games – Knicks-Hawks at 7 p.m., Clippers-Mavericks at 9:30; ABC has the Nets and Celtics at 8:30.
