There's an old saying about acting: Never share a scene with kids or animals. Apparently, Fluffy never got the memo. Actor and comedian Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias hosts the new series "Unleashed" (7 p.m., Nickelodeon, TV-G), an animal talent competition in search of America's most entertaining pet.
He will be joined by a panel of judges including Peyton List ("Cobra Kai"), Preacher Lawson ("America's Got Talent") and Utkarsh Ambudkar ("Brittany Runs a Marathon"). Not to give too much away, but the host believes the talent is impressive. "We have a squirrel that can water ski, enough said!" Iglesias observed.
Tomorrow night, Apple TV+ begins streaming "Bruce Springsteen's Letter to You," a feature-length documentary about the making of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's latest album.
The opening moments of "Letter" are so elegiac, it seems like the movie is pushing more than mere music. If you didn't know any better, you'd half-think Springsteen was running for president.
Shot in an austere black-and-white, the film opens with slow-motion aerial drone footage of a river valley in the dead of winter. This is cut with shots of Springsteen shown to his best advantage and followed by a voice-over from the singer/songwriter about his 45-year-old "conversation" with his band and with his audience.
The cult of adulation surrounding Springsteen is so intense and long-lasting that he gets away with largely humorless self-regard that would seem absurd coming from any mere pop star.
For at least an hour of its 90-minute running time, the camera reverently gazes at the chiseled face of "The Boss," adoring him as one might a movie star, political candidate or canonized saint. This is a promotional movie, after all.
