A group of orphans is recruited to save the world from the so-called “Emergency” – an international panic that has led to an absence of truth and empathy among people. This live-action series is based on a novel by Trenton Lee Stewart and includes the quirky humor that made A Series of Unfortunate Events popular. More than likely, if you like one, you’ll like the other. TV-PG.

It’s a documentary about a 1969 music festival that drew big names and hundreds of thousands of fans – but wasn’t named “Woodstock.” Summer of Soul is an engrossing documentary about the Harlem Cultural Festival, which spanned six weeks and drew such artists as Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight and Fifth Dimension. It also included plenty of gospel music, which is spotlighted in the film. Because of themes and brief strong language, this one is best for teens and above. Rated PG-13.
