I Can’t Breathe- Pussy Riot’s first song in English is an “industrial ballad” dedicated to Eric Garner and “all who suffer from state terror – killed, choked, perished because of war and police violence – to political prisoners and those on the streets fighting for change.” (youtube.com)

Battle Creek- If you’re done binge-watching season three of House of Cards by then, make time for the premiere of this new drama by Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, which stars Josh Duhamel. Warning: It sounds like a stale buddy cop drama, but its pedigree makes it worth checking out Sunday night. (cbs.com)

Last Girl in Larchmont- Emily Nussbaum’s essay on Joan Rivers, who is, in the author’s words, “both a role model and a cautionary tale,” offers a fascinating look at the late comedian, her often crude takedowns of other women and her legacy. (newyorker.com)
