Donald Martiny's paintings - lush gestures of paint on aluminum supports - function almost as bas-reliefs formed from paint. I've seen them in various places over the last few years, but his first solo show at Pentimenti Gallery offered me my first opportunity to see many of them together in person. They're remarkable in many ways, not least for the individuality each work embodies while simultaneously affirming Martiny's signature style. They also look terrific in this gallery, which has done well to turn over the entire space to Martiny and to leave lots of space between these assertive works.

James Franco gets a shave and a haircut and sets out to save John F. Kennedy from an assassin's bullet in Stephen King's time-travel drama 11.22.63 , starting Monday on Hulu. Yes, Hulu. Maybe someday a TV network will green-light a show in which one of its suits goes back in time to strangle streaming technology in its cradle, but until then a certain amount of confusion reigns. The online service owned by Disney-ABC, Fox, and Comcast's NBCUniversal continues to ramp up production on original series meant to help it compete with Netflix and Amazon, two other services that first bought TV reruns and out-of-the-theater movies and now compete with their sellers by making their own. CBS, meanwhile, has hired Bryan Fuller ( Hannibal , Pushing Daisies )

Son of Saul Ritz Five A Holocaust film like no other, about a Jewish prisoner in a Nazi death camp whose job is to usher fellow Jews into the crematoriums, and then to clear the corpses for the next wave. When he discovers a dead boy whom he believes to be his son, Saul (Géza Röhrig) goes on a mission to find a rabbi and arrange a proper burial. The power of László Nemes' close-in, intense film cannot be denied. Theory of Obscurity: A Film About The Residents International House, 3701 Chestnut St., 7 p.m. Wednesday The title of Don Hardy's movie about the mysterious avant-garde multimedia collective called the Residents takes its title from Bavarian composer and music theorist N. Senada's concept, which states that "an artist can only produce pure art when the expectations and influences of the outside world are not taken into consideration.

Jesse Saul said his teammates call them "garbage points. " His layups might not be pretty but they count all the same. Saul, a junior forward, raced down the court time and again to score in transition to spark Bishop Eustace to a 72-67 victory over Paul VI in an Olympic Conference National Division clash of Top 15 teams on Tuesday night. Saul generated 25 points and senior guard Mike Cohen broke a 67-67 tie with a three-point play with a little more than a minute on the clock for Bishop Eustace (5-1, 2-0 in the division)

* BETTER CALL SAUL. 10 p.m. Sunday, AMC. Moves to 10 p.m. Mondays following night. * THE JINX - THE LIFE AND DEATHS OF ROBERT DURST. 8 p.m. Sunday, HBO. I HAD MY doubts about the much-anticipated "Better Call Saul. " Spinoffs are always chancy - for every "Frasier," there's at least one "Joey" or "AfterMASH" - and following a show like AMC's "Breaking Bad" only seemed to be asking for trouble. I'm relieved to be wrong. There is a show in Bob Odenkirk's "Breaking Bad" character, a crooked lawyer calling himself Saul Goodman, who, when it all hit the fan in "Bad," predicted a future for himself at a Cinnabon in Omaha.

THE FOURTH annual Harvest on Henry event last month was no pie-in-the-sky venture. It raised $13,000 to support the educational agricultural opportunities at Henry Got Crops CSA, a community-supported agriculture partnership between Saul High School, Weavers Way Food Co-op, Weavers Way Community Programs and Fairmount Park. The daylong festival gave Saul students a chance to interact with the public and featured farm-inspired activities, such as hay rides, pumpkin crafts and - to show off students' cooking skills - a pie-baking contest.

EVERY YEAR about this time, teacher Gail Koskela can't sleep. The W.B. Saul High School educator isn't awake fretting about plans for Saul's annual Country Fair Day, though. Nor is she up with anxiety that some students have senioritis. Koskela's worries are about the pregnant ewes at the school's barn in Upper Roxborough, where they wait to birth cute little lambs during lambing season. She used to leave her house during the night and drive 15 minutes to the barn just to see how the ewes were doing.

PERHAPS the only boo-boo of his life prevented Joe Brinkman from receiving terrific news in timely fashion. We take you back to Dec. 15, and Brinkman, a senior at Girard Academic Music Program, is still unsure whether he'll be accepted for admittance to a local college. He has been instructed to log on to a website at 6 o'clock, and that, presto, the news will be available. "I forgot all about the date," he said, sheepishly. "I guess that happened because I didn't think I had a chance.
