Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” proves that even Tina Fey occasionally stumbles. “London Has Fallen” at least has Morgan Freeman. Television: A new season of “House of Cards” just streamed on Netflix. On Sunday, “Downton Abbey” airs its final episode ever: at least it’s two hours! Music: Anthrax has a hot-selling album, “For All Kings.” Books: “Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter” tells the story of the child that Joe Kennedy, Sr. had lobotomized. Chekhov’s “A Life in Letters” is sublime. Sports: The Mets are certainly living it up down in Florida right now, aren’t they? And is it too early to nominate Steph Curry as Time’s Person of the Year? Finally: Every day, I learn the truth of Dick’s line from Shakespeare’s “Henry VI, Part II”: “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.”
