Holy cabin fever, but though I sometimes fear I have gotten to the end of streaming, there are in fact fresh series, episodes and seasons. Here is the latest batch of new-TV notes.

Catching up

“The third and final season of the Comedy Central workplace comedy Corporate begins streaming Friday, Nov. 27. For those stuck working from home and communicating by daily video conference calls, CORPORATE offers a return to the comfort and nostalgia of the grim and soul-crushing office life everyone has come to desperately miss during social distancing. Season 3 follows Matt (Matt Ingebretson), Jake (Jake Weisman), Grace (Aparna Nancherla, A Simple Favor), and the rest of Hampton DeVille as they face the struggles of content creation, workplace conflicts, business trips, and finally learning to climb the corporate ladder.”

Sunday Nov. 29

The Undoing (season finale HBO 8pmCT/9ET) “The culminating episode of THE UNDOING, HBO’s thrilling limited-series from David E.

But was Leary’s “perfect love” a CIA plant who helped take him down? Or was she simply a rich, beautiful young woman out for the adventure of a lifetime with the man Richard Nixon called “Public Enemy #1″?”

What is d2tv anyway? I’m so glad you asked. This is the latest iteration of my TV writing/blogging that began back in 1986 or so? at the Winnipeg Sun, continued briefly in print and on the web at the Montreal Gazette and finally, here, for myself and YOU! Having newly (July 2020) left the full-time journalism business for a brief rest aka vacation and moved myself and d2tv head office to my hometown of Winnipeg (YAY), I am hoping to put more time and features on this blog, which is still currently mostly a collection of Canadian streaming and broadcast programming notes focussing on premieres of new and returning series, specials etc, with the occasional series finale thrown in for sentimental reasons. Reviews are, for the moment, only occasional. If you spot an error or oversight or have a recommendation to share, please do so in the comments or by emailing me at the above address. Glad you’re here. PS: Reminder that I’m trying to keep the ET/CT times straight but sometimes, there will be mixups (I’m a pensioner for chrissakes!) so do let me know if there is a problem and I will makes very sincere empathic (empathetic?) noises. (edit note: please check the previous. Hello? Is there no editor in charge? edit reply: the editor will go to work when the editor gets paid. blogger reply: You’ll get paid when… when… No I better not say it out loud. *storms off, fuming*)
