The Nose On 'Oh, The Places You'll Go,' All The HBO Shows, And Hulu's 'Catch-22'

May 31, 2019

And speaking of shows, George Clooney and Grant Heslov's new Hulu miniseries is a four-and-a-half-hour, six-episode adaption of Joseph Heller's Catch-22. Is that what the world needed right now?

Some other stuff that happened this week, give or take:
