He lived in a van

The late Chris Farley may have called Wisconsin his home, but I always mistook him for a Minnesotan. I’m certainly not the first to consider the “Saturday Night Live” star a brother. As touchingly documented in the new film “I Am Chris Farley,” the comedian came across, on stage and off, as the lovable neighbor, even if he did throw too many late-night parties and then throw up on your lawn. The movie skims over Farley’s dark periods (brother Kevin Farley is one of the producers), but fans eager to throw their arms around the big fella will most likely forgive director Derik Murray, who gets notes of sympathy from Dan Aykroyd, Lorne Michaels and Adam Sandler. 8 p.m. Monday, Spike

Get your kicks

Netflix makes a play for Hispanic streamers with its first Spanish-language series, “Club de Cuervos,” in which the death of a rich man has his family squabbling over the future of his popular soccer team. Think “Dallas” with sombreros instead of cowboy hats. Available at netflix.com

Rachel, Rachel

It would take audio commentary from Stephen Hawking for me to comprehend what went down in the second season of “True Detective,” which concludes this weekend. But even an imbecile like me can see that cast standout Rachel McAdams is a major talent who deserves the kind of attention “Detective” granted Matthew McConaughey last season. 8 p.m. Sunday, HBO

Lost in space

You’d think a series starring a genuine movie star would be a guaranteed hit in the lazy days of summer. Not necessarily. Despite the presence of Oscar winner Halle Berry, ratings for “Extant” in its second season have been all but extinct. Either audiences finally gave up on the convoluted story line, or Berry’s stature has fallen so far she needs to consider “Catwoman 2.” 8 p.m. Wednesday, WCCO, Ch. 4
