“Daisy Jones & The Six” (2023, TV-MA), based on the bestselling novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid, traces the rise and sudden fall of a 1970s rock band from obscurity to superstardom. Drawing upon Fleetwood Mac’s career for inspiration, the limited series stars Riley Keogh as singer/songwriter Daisy and Sam Claflin as Billy Dunne, frontman of the struggling L.A. band the Six. They become the charismatic lead singers whose tempestuous attraction adds the sex to the drugs and rock ’n’ roll in their wild ride. Three episodes available, new episodes on Fridays. (Prime Video)

Pedro Pascal dons the helmet once again for the third season of “The Mandalorian” (TV-14), the first and still most successful small screen spinoff of the “Star Wars” universe. Reunited with Grogu and headed for his home planet of Mandalore, their adventures bring them in contact with friends and adversaries old (returning guests Carl Weathers, Amy Sedaris, Giancarlo Esposito, and Katee Sackhoff) and new. New episodes on Wednesdays. (Disney+)

In Ruben Östlund’s scabrous satire “Triangle of Sadness” (2022, R, with subtitles), a pair of celebrity models join a luxury cruise for the pampered rich and are shipwrecked thanks to a sudden storm and an unhinged captain (Woody Harrelson). Dolly De Leon stands out as the ship’s maid who turns the tables with her survival skills. It won the Palme d’Or at Cannes and is Oscar nominated for best picture, director and original screenplay. (Hulu)

“M3gan” (2023, PG-13) is a life-like robotic doll with artificial intelligence programmed to be both playmate and protector for Cady, (Violet McGraw), the orphaned niece of its inventor (Allison Williams).

Also available in a TV-MA version. (Peacock)

Filmmaker James Gray draws on his own adolescence for “Armageddon Time” (2022, R), a coming-of-age drama about a Jewish boy (Michael Banks Repeta) in 1980s Queens who faces prejudice and social inequity when he’s enrolled in a private school with the children of the privileged.
