Paul Reiser in "Red Oaks"
Wondering what to watch this Labor Day weekend? You might want to fire up your Amazon account and check out the five new pilots the online behemoth is rolling out. Unlike their competitors at other streaming services, the company is taking a unique approach to programming. Today they're launching the new shows, but the catch is that user comments and ratings will determine which ones get ordered to series...and which don't. Among the competing shows is "Red Oaks," from director David Gordon Green.

Obvious Child
Premiering at Sundance, “Obvious Child” is about would-be stand-up Donna Stern (Jenny Slate) and her decisions when a one-night stand results in an ill-timed unwanted pregnancy. “Obvious Child” began as a short in 20009, then hunted for crowdfunding, got it, and resulted in this feature-length Sundance 2014 debut for writer-director Gillian Robespierre. It’d be easy to make a crass joke about how, for a film about abortion, “Obvious Child” has had an unexpectedly long gestation period. That’s also about the only crass joke “Obvious Child” doesn’t make, but it’s also worth noting that despite its fearlessness and fake-tough bravado, the film never takes its circumstances or consequences lightly; Slate’s Donna Stern is cracking wise because if she didn’t, she’d probably just crack.
