When life gives you sexism, make lemonade—or lemon meringue, or lemon bars, or anything else a 1950s audience of “overlooked housewives” might be interested in watching being prepared on a TV cooking show. That’s certainly the attitude of Elizabeth Zott (Brie Larson) in Apple TV+’s adaptation of Bonnie Garmus’ hit novel Lessons in Chemistry, which follows scientist Zott as she’s forced out of a career in chemistry to host a cooking program. But it’s the ultimately the “overlooked housewives,” as the Lessons in Chemistry official log line describes them, who might have a thing or two to teach their husbands—beyond, of course, the right ratios of lemon juice to sugar. As the new series rolls out through late November, here’s when and how to tune in.
