Welcome back to Heady Entertainment, MERRY JANE's weekly guide to just-released movies, books, and music — all fresh, dank, and THC-friendly. In specific, we choose our picks based on how they can enhance your combined consumption of cannabis and entertainment.

New movie releases offer quite a mixed bag for your lit viewing pleasure. Abominable is an animated Yeti-out-of-the-mountains adventure; The Day Shall Come satirizes government subversion in the inner city; The Death of Dick Long reinvents the premise of a corpse cover-up comedy; and Judy showcases Renee Zellwegger as a Hollywood icon who got way lost over the rainbow.

TV-wise, a couple of all-time stoner comedy faves rise again as Crank Yankers and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia bust out new seasons. So does the weekly WTF spectacle of The Masked Singer. On top of that, two toke-ready new series debut, too: Creepshow and Godfather of Harlem.

For new tunes, be sure to pick up and puff along to just-dropped knockouts by Temples and the mighty Tegan and Sara.

So let’s get straight — but not “straight” — to this week’s fresh-rolled recommendations.
