NEW THIS WEEK: NETFLIX TEEN ROMANCES, CHESNEY, JOJO ALBUMS
It’s good to see familiar faces and hear familiar voices, and several are returning this week in ways retro and new. JoJo, Kenny Chesney and Offset are among those with new projects out this week, while Indiana Jones will be back fighting Nazis and hating snakes on network TV.
There’s plenty of new arrivals headed to devices this week as well, with Netflix offering a comedy from Mindy Kaling and a teen romance film. Other offerings will allow the housebound a chance to marvel at the splendors of Los Angeles, Dover, England, and Dublin on screens this week.

Here’s a collection curated by entertainment journalists of what’s arriving on TV, streaming services and music platforms this week.

MOVIES

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark

With everyone talking about perfect movies on Twitter, it’s pretty perfect that CBS is kicking off its Sunday Night Movie slate with Steven Spielberg’s “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” which even nearly 40 years on is still as fresh and wonderful as can be. Sure, the Indiana Jones movies aren’t hard to find ( they’ve been on Netflix for some time now ), but there is something cozy and comforting about taking the guess work out of it and tuning in to a network to watch at the same time as everyone else.

The Half of It

This charming teen romance about a high school loner who helps a jock woo the popular girl in school may look like something you’ve seen before, but no one is exactly who they seem to be in this smart Cyrano de Bergerac-with-a-twist film from writer-director Alice Wu. On Netflix Friday, it’s Wu’s first feature since her 2004 debut, “Saving Face.”
