Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: Take your mind off the news and see “Logan Lucky,” starring Channing Tatum. Directed by Soderbergh, the picture is, to cite that fake-news outlet The New York Times, “ridiculously entertaining.” TV/Streaming: Al Franken and Gavin Newsom are guests on Friday’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.” Sunday brings a new episode of young Inspector Morse on “Endeavor.” Music: All the Glen Campbell albums topping the charts prove the dictum: “Death can be good for business.” You can watch and listen to the much-praised new Peter Sellars’ production of “La Clemenza di Tito” with a free ten-day subscription to Books: To ease the end of summer, I’m still swimming in the pool of 19th-century fiction: Dickens, Trollope. Sports: While all the sports-media outlets count down to the NFL season, I’m watching reruns of last week’s world track-and-field championships. Finally: August is when people in town pretend that they’re out-of-town.
