1st Choice:  Mel Brooks: Unwrapped. “The HBO comedy special features award-winning actor, writer, producer and director Mel Brooks in interviews past and present with Alan Yentob, former creative director for the BBC. Since 1981, Yentob has filmed the inimitable Brooks for a number of candid conversations and mock interviews, many of which showcase a more reserved Alan as “straight man” to Mel’s high-energy, quick-witted, unsparingly sarcastic persona. Combining Yentob’s archival material with present-day interviews and verité footage of the now 93-year-old Brooks, the special is filled with the venerated comedian’s hilarious anecdotes about his life and illustrious career.” HBO

2nd Choice: Magnum P.I. “Magnum is called up from the reserves for a top secret mission, but his friends are stunned when they learn that the mission is a lie and Magnum has been set up.” CBS
