We discuss Girls5eva and Hacks, two comedy series about grasping for new life in an industry that's all about the young and the fresh.
07:04 Girls5eva — _the latest in the Tina Fey/Robert Carlock universe, streaming on Peacock — is the closest to _30 Rock we're going to get (although it doesn't quite go all the way).
22:333 Hacks, airing weekly on HBO Max, is a Jean Smart vehicle about generational differences and conflict.
37:34 Plus, culture notes about why people our age are going gaga over a teen pop star's teen angst oeuvre.
