‘Bad Boys,’ ‘BoJack,’ Halsey, and 93 other January pop-culture events to check out

By Joe Berkowitz

It used to be that January was guaranteed to be the weirdest movie month each year. Fast Company once even put together a statistical, 100% scientific analysis to that effect. After four months of putting out 75% of the year’s best movies, Hollywood would exhale and let its belly jiggle a little.

That has not changed at all, not even a little.

This year, however, we have neither a new Underworld nor Resident Evil chapter, but we are indeed ringing in the new year with some truly odd flicks. We’re talking Kristen Stewart and T.J. Miller fighting sea monsters in Underwater. We’re talking Walton Goggins as apparently one of Three Christs. Then there’s whatever the hell is going on with Robert Downey Jr. in Dolittle. Luckily, some savvy TV execs must have smelled the movie blood in the water, because this month also sees the return of Curb Your Enthusiasm, the debut of Awkwafina’s Comedy Central show, and the swan song for Schitt’s Creek.

Here’s what else you’ll be watching and listening to while keeping warm this winter.
