TV WORTH WATCHING:

FAMILY TREE

HBO, 10:30 p.m. ET; 5/12/2013 

SERIES PREMIERE: This eight-part TV series from Christopher Guest has its own pitch, tone and pace – but if you’re a fan of Guest’s politely strange sense of humor (and I certainly am), this tale of a 30-year-old U.K. slacker (played by Chris O’Dowd) suddenly exploring his family tree is loaded with delights. For a full review, see Bianculli’s Blog.
