Wondering what to watch this weekend? This week we have voices of angels, a family feud, and a quick bit of delight from Wes Anderson.

St. Olaf College Christmas Festival - Livestream and On Demand 

Picked by Newsletter Writer Graison Dangor

Since 1912, this small Minnesota college — not the fictitious hometown of Rose from The Golden Girls — has put on what has become one of the country's most revered traditional Christmas concerts. If you didn't grow up with its PBS broadcasts playing in the background as you decorated the tree or made Christmas cookies, pull up the livestream on Saturday night (8:15 p.m. ET) or stream it on demand starting Dec. 13. Some past years' concerts are also on YouTube. (Full disclosure — my wife is an Ole.)


Power Book III: Raising Kanan, S3 - Starz

Picked by Lawrence Banton

The Power universe continues with the third season of Raising Kanan premiering this weekend. When we left season two, the relationship between Kanan and his his mother Raquel was as strained as it had ever been. After watching the trailer for the upcoming season, it appears that the two grow even further apart. If you've been a fan of the Power universe, then strained relationships between parent and child should come as no surprise as it is a recurring theme in each show. Much like Tariq from the original series, I feel as though the dynamic between parent and child could reach a point of no return at some point during this show – maybe even in this upcoming season.


The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar - Netflix

Picked by Senior Editor Dina Ross

This magical short is Wes Anderson in all of his glory. Using his colorful, folksy version of storytelling, he brought to life Roald Dahl's 1977 tale of a young playboy who doesn't mind a little cheating in gambling. Henry Sugar finds a book that teaches him how to read without seeing, certainly a boon for a card hustler. Anderson packs a ton of star power into just 37 minutes with names like Benedict Cumberbatch, Dev Patel, Ralph Fiennes and Ben Kingsley.
