The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle: Yes, Moose and Squirrel are back. Series premiere. Amazon

All Night: A teen comedy about some high school seniors on “grad night.” This looks like typical teen comedy material, but I can’t help but think about John Mulaney’s bit about how so many song lyrics are about how “tonight is the night” and “we only have tonight” and what 19-year-old garbage that is because I am an old woman. Hulu
