What’s Streaming

CARMEN SANDIEGO Stream on Netflix. Her enemies may not know where to find Carmen Sandiego, but starting Tuesday, viewers will. Coming back for its second season, “Carmen Sandiego” (voiced by Gina Rodriguez of “Jane the Virgin”) is continuing her mission to steal from the criminal organization V.I.L.E. and give back to its victims. While the authorities may see her as a master criminal because of her elaborate heists, Carmen, with the help of Player (Finn Wolfhard of “Stranger Things”), stays true to her mission to right the wrongs in the world.

HALLOWEEN BAKING CHAMPIONSHIP Stream on Hulu. It’s officially October, which means Halloween season is upon us. The first three seasons of Food Network's themed baking competitions are available on Hulu. Each episode features two rounds where the bakers have to prove their creativity and talent to a panel of judges, the chefs Carla Hall, Zac Young and Katie Lee. The show is hosted by John Henson and the prize is $25,000. Get inspired to make spooky treats like brain cakes, zombie fingers and candy-stuffed cookies.

NIKKI GLASER: BANGIN’ Stream on Netflix. If you’ve listened to Nikki Glaser’s SiriusXM program “U Up” or watched her MTV show “Nikki and Sara Live” or Comedy Central show “Not Safe With Nikki Glaser,” you’ll know that she doesn’t hold back. Her new standup special, “Bangin,’” is no exception. Glaser, whose last special was part of Netflix’s series “The Standups,” provides her uncensored commentary on sex, sobriety, insecurity and the unrealistic sexual expectations for women.

SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS Stream on Facebook Watch. In the first season of “Sorry for Your Loss,” Leigh Shaw (Elizabeth Olsen) is recovering from her husband’s sudden and mysterious death. Her relationships change and she uncovers secrets about her husband that forces her to question happier times. In the second season of the show, which premieres Tuesday, Leigh works toward moving on. In her review for Watching, Margaret Lyons compared the show to “This Is Us”: “Both shows have stories about transracial adoption and sibling bonds, a father who made mistakes, a mom who sacrificed to keep things afloat, a needlessly mysterious death, flashbacks to happier times and adult children who have failed to fully hatch. But ‘Sorry’ has better dialogue and character development, even in half-hour episodes.”

IN A MAN’S WORLD 10 p.m. on Bravo. It’s pretty clear to most women in the world that they are not treated the same as men. In a social experiment executive produced by Viola Davis (“How to Get Away With Murder”), Bravo is transforming four women into men to bring awareness to just how prominent P is in society. In preparation for the transformation, the women will get full makeovers from special effects makeup artists and work with specialists on how to move, sound and act like a man. Then they’ll venture out into the world, interact with their friends and families and hopefully bring awareness to the gender gap.
