 Julianne Moore is believable as an inspiring educator in her high school classroom but a lonely heart at home. Literature has set a high bar of manhood that the puerile, arrogant, dim guys she meets can never reach. Life gets more exciting when a male former student returns with

 The protagonist (Jordan Gelber) is a doughy, middle-aged man-child living with his parents and his action figures in this darkly perceptive suburban comedy from the director of Welcome to the Dollhouse. Todd Solondz is masterful

From catching an awesome club, theater or co-op concert to hanging out with other locals in your favorite neighborhood haunt of choice, Milwaukee's options for fun are increasingly abundant as the sun goes down. While no neighborhood is completely genre-specific, the residents of each do take pride in their own unique flavor. Milwaukee has always been known for impressive bar-per-capita numbers.

Britain's Charlie Gillett has had a remarkable career, starting with his pioneering history of R&B, The Sound of the City, and continuing through today as a BBC world music DJ.

Tonight @ the BBC - 9 p.m.

It’s a good week for Southbound, the popular Milwaukee-jam rock band with as much reverence for the Allmann Brothers as you’d expect from a group named after one of their songs. With the Harley-Davidson festivities, Southbound’s brand of biker-friendly classic-leaning rock is very much . . .

Tonight @ the BBC - 9:00 PM

There’s an air of sadness in the comedy of Doug Stanhope, the comedian who inherited “The Man Show” secondhand from its more-famous creators, Adam Carolla and Jimmy Kimmel.
