WISHFUL DRINKING
January 1, 2017  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 9:00 p.m. ET

 

HBO has added its 2010 special, Wishful Drinking, to tonight’s schedule, as a timely reaction to the deaths of Carrie Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds. Both are represented in this televised version of Fisher’s autobiographical one-woman stage show. Fisher discusses her parents, actress Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher, at length, and her mother is interviewed in film segments during the program. With Carrie Fisher talking frankly about everything from Star Wars to ex-husband Paul Simon, Wishful Drinking is a funny one-woman memoir, but sometimes poignant – now more than ever.
