'Togetherness' (HBO, January 11th)
With TV just starting to go through its Indiewood-revolution phase (see Transparent), we're happy to see longtime lo-fi, low-key moviemakers Mark and Jay Duplass get in on the small-screen action. The siblings behind the cringe-dramedy Cyrus have fashioned an HBO series about an on-the-rocks thirtysomething Angeleno couple who take in a friend and a sister-in-law, both of whom are down on their luck. Expect the sort of painfully funny (and outright painful) social awkwardness, recognizable bad behavior and loose, raw brilliance the brothers have made their métier. D.F.
