Pick of the Week:

CORRECTION: In the episode, we erroneously gave the impression that you must be an Amazon Prime subscriber to watch the pilot episode of Mozart in the Jungle. Blair Tindall, author of the book on which the show is based, let us know that this is not the case. Anybody can watch without being a Prime member. Sorry for the confusion. Thanks for setting us straight, Blair. Hooray free things!
