The world is in chaos and the future uncertain, but oy with the content already! Ryan Murphy’s “Hollywood” takes us back in time to help discrimination pave the way for a more inclusive Tinseltown; the Bagels unpack season 2 of “Dead to Me” and why Some Good News’ John Krasinski should get the Nobel Peace Prize; and an unsolicited “paper bag dramatics” rewrite of HBOMax’s upcoming Sarah Silverman/Seth Rogen Christmas project. Plus, drive the chevy to the levee with us for our final words (at least for now) about “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist.”
