We’re starting lowbrow then turning it all the way up to gourmet documentaries this Monday.

What We’re Watching Right Now

Just two gators fighting it out at the 17th hole of the Zurich Classic. Who ever said golf was boring?

What We’re Watching Later When We’re Bored

“Sesame Street” has been pandering to adults with their latest parodies: we were treated to both “House of Cards” and “Game of Thrones” renditions from our favorite muppets. This time around they’re giving us a full “Avengers: Age of Ultron” parody, that might even convince us to eat our vegetables.

What We’re Watching Tonight

The six-part docu series “Chef’s Table,” premiered last night on Netlflix; it’s the latest from David Gelb, the masterful documentarian behind the immersive, elegant “Jiro Dreams of Sushi.” “Chef’s Table,” by contrast, focuses on one internationally renowned chef per episode (like Dan Barber or Massimo Bottura) — it’s an amazing look at how the pros work.
