SUNDAY: this series that is squirm-inducing satirizes anything it touches, with the primary juicy targets of manipulative “reality” TV and cultural appropriation in the guise of doing good. The sublime Emma Stone stars as the beatific Whitney, married to the neurotic Asher (Nathan Fielder, as always an acquired taste), whom we meet while they’re producing and pitching a fictional pilot for HGTV. Their show: Flip-anthropy, which purports to bring the ethnic enclave of Española in New Mexico into the eco-friendly century that is 21st holistic Passive Homes (“saving the Earth one kilowatt at a time), albeit at the cost of higher rents and gentrification. When a staged stunt backfires and Asher finds himself cursed, the ensuing awkwardness goes off the charts. Fielder co-created the show with Benny Safdie, who co-stars as their unscrupulous producer, Dougie.

Across the street in the Van Rhijn mansion, Ada (Cynthia Nixon) eagerly prepares a luncheon party for Rev. Forte (Robert Sean Leonard), the menu of which prompts my favorite line of the season, from none other than Ada’s haughty sister Agnes (Christine Baranski): “SOUP? At LUNCHEON?” the actual concept!
