What’s on TV This Week: ‘Black Narcissus’ and ‘My Psychedelic Love Story’

Between network, cable and streaming, the modern television landscape is a vast one. Here are some of the shows, specials and movies coming to TV this week, Nov. 23-29. Details and times are subject to change.

BLACK NARCISSUS 8 p.m. on FX. You’d be hard pressed to find a pair of films much more different from each other than Denzel Washington’s 2016 adaptation of the August Wilson play “Fences” and John Krasinski’s 2018 horror blockbuster “A Quiet Place.” But those movies share at least two common traits: Each has a plot in which a pregnancy poses an existential threat to a family, and each was shot by Charlotte Bruus Christensen, the Danish cinematographer. Christensen takes a seat in the director’s chair — and further expands her range — with her latest project, “Black Narcissus,” a mini-series adaptation of Rumer Godden’s 1939 novel. Set in 1934, the story follows a

“As cases continue to increase rapidly across the United States, the safest way to celebrate Thanksgiving is to celebrate at home with the people you live with,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday after updating its guidelines on holiday celebrations and small gatherings.

Citing government sources, it said British regulators were about to start a formal appraisal of the vaccine, made by Pfizer Inc and BioNTech SE, and that the National Health Service had been told to be ready to administer it by Dec. 1.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Friday that it would meet on Dec. 10 to discuss whether to authorise the vaccine.

‘Mangrove,’ ‘Sound of Metal,’ ‘Run’: Movies to Watch This Week

If last week was a big one for Netflix (what with “Mank” and “Hillbilly Elegy” out in theaters), then this one belongs to Amazon, who have a pair of big projects launching via their Prime Video subscription service. The first is “12 Years a Slave” director Steve McQueen’s anthology “Small Axe,” an epic and altogether unconventional series that doesn’t fit neatly into the “film” or “TV” categories: McQueen has made five features, all set in London’s immigrant West Indian community, dealing with aspects of cultural identify, racism and community. Of the three entries I’ve seen, this week’s entry, “Mangrove,” is the strongest — and a great way to kick off the cycle, with a courtroom drama for those who felt Netflix’s “The Trial of the Chicago 7” didn’t give adequate time to Bobby Seale.

Amazon also launches “The Sound of Metal,” a drama about a heavy metal drummer losing his

Business Insider’s biggest healthcare stories week ending November 20

Hello, 

It feels so dissonant — the good news about vaccines working at the same time as case counts are rising even higher, New York’s shutting down its schools, and states and cities are making the tough decisions to lock back down in the hopes of mitigating even further spread of the virus. 

But that’s indeed where we find ourselves in November 2020. How’s everyone holding up? Has anyone restarted a hobby? My sourdough starter’s back from hibernation as part of the move, ready for a winter’s worth of baking. 

Before I jump right in to this week in vaccine news (Should I change the name of this newsletter to Insider Vaccines?), a reminder to subscribe to this newsletter here. And pass it along to your friends who might also enjoy daily dispatches of healthcare news!
