Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: It’s a slow week when the main release is Disney’s “The Ice Adventures of Buck Wild”…TV/Streaming: All the hate being leveled at “The Gilded Age,” on HBO, only makes me want to watch the second episode more…And all the love showered on PBS’s remake of “Around the World in 80 Days” won’t make me revise my opinion, based on one viewing, that it’s Jules Verne on steroids. And that’s not good…Music: The unprofessionalism of Adele amidst her cancellation of the Vegas residency doesn’t seem to have hurt sales of her album “30”…Books: Nathaniel Philbrick’s latest is “Travels with George,” about George Washington…Sports: Last week’s NFL playoff games were thrilling even for me, a person who finds all the commercials on American football broadcasts such a turn-off…In the Australian Open, I’m rooting for Medvedev and Collins, but it will probably be Nadal and Barty.
