This Weekend I Have … an Hour, and Anything Goes
‘Live From Lincoln Center: Sutton Foster in Concert’
When to watch: Friday, 9 p.m., on PBS. (Check local listings.)
“Younger” doesn’t come back until June, but luckily there’s this terrific special to keep its star, Sutton Foster, in our minds and hearts this spring. In this special, she is by turns perky and salty and wistful. The highlight is the goofy, almost variety-show schtick between Ms. Foster and Jonathan Groff, which eventually leads to a fantastic tap duet to the song “Fit as a Fiddle (and Ready for Love).”
… a Few Hours, and I Like the Human Condition
This two-season series, which began in 2009, is for obsessive-compulsive and anxiety disorders what “Intervention” is for addiction: a frank, intimate, sometimes shocking snapshot of a person in crisis. Here, though, we also stay with the subjects through effective therapy and coaching. Pop culture tends to position O.C.D. as cutesy germaphobia, but “Obsessed” makes it clear that the disorder is isolating and debilitating — and, mercifully, also treatable.
… 4 Hours, and I Like Gentle Comedy
The brainy and self-effacing British comedian James Acaster released four stand-up specials at once: three individual chapters and a fourth that synthesizes material from the previous three. The wrinkled backdrops and Mr. Acaster’s unassuming demeanor give off a laid-back vibe, but the material is precisely written and tightly constructed, with elegant moments of poetry and fantasy. The third hour, “Reset,” is the best of the bunch, but the episodes build on one another and should be watched in order.
