Weekend viewing guide for happy vibes in 6-8 words.

The Pop Culture Happy Hour crew has had a difficult week, but they still managed to find some escapism in their favorite things. Here are their recommendations for what to check out this weekend:

1. Studio Ghibli Fest is back, featuring beautiful animated films like My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki’s Delivery Service, Spirited Away, and Ponyo. Even if you’ve seen these movies before, there’s something magical about seeing them on the big screen.
2. Succession returns this week, offering a funny, dramatic, and cynical look at the battle for power within a company. It’s the fourth and final season, and fans have been eagerly anticipating its return.
3. Marvel Snap is a satisfying mobile game that combines skill and luck with Marvel characters and powers. The game matches you with opponents at your level and can be played in quick two-minute rounds.
4. Tournament of Champions on Food Network is a bracket-style competition among TV chefs, hosted by the underrated Guy Fieri. It’s just the right amount of stakes and makes for great fun.

In other recommendations, NPR’s Linda Holmes shares an explainer on the Rule Against Perpetuities and highlights the talent of casting director Allison Jones. Fans of Alexandra Petri can preorder her upcoming book, US History: Important American Documents (I Made Up). And in a little bit of news, the recent layoffs at NPR will affect the Pop Culture Happy Hour show, which will now release four episodes per week instead of five.
