Dames at sea

Miranda Richardson ("Stronger"), Zoe Wanamaker ("Awake and Sing!") and Phyllis Logan "Downton Abbey") may not have British damehoods, but the queen may want to have them join the club after catching "Girlfriends," a series that blends the best of "Sex and the City" and "Golden Girls," with a possible murder tossed in. Richardson in particular is a hoot, playing a recently jilted magazine editor who refuses to believe she's no longer a kid. Definitely a Samantha.

He ain't heavy

Judd Apatow may be best known for such comedies as "Knocked Up," but he's also Hollywood's sharpest disc jockey, championing underrated artists like Loudon Wainwright III and Graham Parker. He lovingly profiles his latest fix in "May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers," a documentary with so much access you get the thrill of tracking a new song from conception to the recording studio.

Dirty deeds

The news documentary series "Dirty Money" could best be described as a rock 'n' roll version of "Frontline." It has a faster pace and more sauciness than the PBS series as it tackles subjects ranging from a possibly corrupt maple-syrup industry to President Donald Trump's business history.
