Analysis: “Euphoria” Season 2 and other content to help you ride in the depths in 2022


Families, food and fun. Or drama, too much alcohol and canceled flights.

Whichever way you’ve ridden, sit back and relax with a new year, new content, and a new you (just kidding, we know it’s the same as you, but you are legally obligated to to do all the “new year, new me”).

‘Euphoria’ Season 2

Speaking of dysfunction, based on the trailer, recovering drug addict Rue Bennett, played by Zendaya, goes through it in the new season of “Euphoria”.
She looks toasty, roasted, and struggling – which means an absolutely stellar performance in the actor’s unconventional teen drama, which won an Emmy for the role in 2020.

The second season of “Euphoria” begins Sunday on HBO Max (owned by CNN’s parent company).

‘The tender bar’

Go forward to this water point filled with characters.

With all that Ben Affleck has gone through in his personal life, it’s sometimes easy to forget that the man is in the acting business.

This time around, he plays a bar owner whose place is a place of growth for his aspiring writer nephew (Tye Sheridan).

George Clooney directed the drama, which debuts on Amazon Prime Friday.

Clooney isn’t the only actor vying for awards season as a director.

Maggie Gyllenhaal directed and adapted this screenplay from Elena Ferrante’s novel of the same name.

Award-winning actress Olivia Colman stars as a woman who befriends a struggling young mother, played by Dakota Johnson.

This is all I can share without potentially spoiling it, but trust things to get deep.

The psychological drama is currently streaming on Netflix.

Two things to listen to

The Weeknd performs at the Pepsi Super Bowl LV Halftime Show at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. On February 7, 2021.

Get ready for The Weeknd.

Yes, weekends like Saturday and Sunday, but also artist The Weeknd, who releases new music on Friday.

“Dawn FM” is the sequel to critically acclaimed “After Hours” in 2020.

A trailer for the new album promises “a new sonic universe of the spirit of The Weeknd” and lists Jim Carrey, Quincy Jones, Lil Wayne, Tyler, The Creator and Oneohtrix Point Never in what has to be one of the most eclectic collaborator groups of all the temperature.
RuPaul is shown in a scene from
RuPaul isn’t content with just having the most Emmy-winning reality series.

His new album, “Mamaru”, was released on Friday, and it’s his 14th studio album, thank you very much.

If the lead single, “Blame It on the Edit,” is any indication, RuPaul is coming for anyone who comes up against his special blend of wit and reading.

One thing to say

“This Is Us” ends, and we’re not ready.

The sixth and final season kicked off this week for the show most likely to get you to browse half a box of tissues per episode.

And as we experience all the sensations, know that we are not the only ones.

Some of the stars spoke about how deeply the NBC drama touched them as well.

Because that’s what good TV does – it draws you in and reminds you of the humanity within all of us.

Something to sip

The latest increase in Covid-19 cases is being boosted by the highly contagious variant of Omicron, but getting the vaccine and boosting helps lessen the severity of the infection.

The preponderance of celebrities testing positive for Covid-19 is a reminder that the coronavirus doesn’t care who you are or where you are.

Just last week, talk show hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers, along with the actor Lupita Nyong’o, all made public a positive diagnosis.

Celebrities are people, just like us, and the global pandemic is a great equalizer in so many ways.

While it may look like March or April 2020 again, keep in mind that we now have vaccines and boosters to help ease the severity of infections.

So stay safe and do all you can to make sure you are protecting yourself and others.
