We discuss Starstruck, a romcom for the modern age, and Enlightened, a short-lived series about trying to do good in a world that's not necessarily made for that.
03:39 Starstruck, streaming on HBO Max, is a perfectly short, simple, and sweet take on a romcom.
19:45 Enlightened, also on HBO Max, holds up remarkably well as an exploration of the human condition, empathy, and whether people can change.
35:53 Plus, culture notes about this year's Emmy nominations and some snubs.
