Show of the week
Fourteen years after director Michel Gondry and actor Jim Carrey paired up to make Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, they still have a special chemistry. In this new series, Carrey stars as Mr. Pickles, a children’s television star who for three decades has been using puppets and gentle monologues to teach kids to believe in love. But when tragedy strikes close to home, anger wells up inside him as he tries to maintain his public persona. Gondry draws the best out of Carrey, who’s backed by Frank Langella, Catherine Keener, and Judy Greer.
