Catch of the Week

THE ARTISTS AL­WAYS KNOWN AS: We had hardly got used to the idea of a world without David Bowie when it was an­nounced on April 21, 2016, that Prince Rogers Nel­son had been found dead at his home in ­Minneapolis. There are plenty of re­minders on YouTube of his bril­liance. Here he is at the Brits in 2006; the band in­cludes per­cus­sion­ist and singer Sheila E: tinyurl.com/NZLPrinceBrits. At the Bill­board Awards in 2013, he rocked out with gui­tarist Donna Gran­tis: tinyurl.com/NZLPrinceBill­board. And here’s a naughty record­ing of his fi­nal tour, Pi­ano & a Mi­cro­phone: tinyurl.com/NZLPrincePiano.

WE’RE LOS­ING HIM: Ev­ery­one knows that med­i­cal dra­mas are there for the drama rather than the medicine, but the ar­rival of yet another new med­i­cal se­ries ( The Res­i­dent, Mon­day and Tues­day) has us won­der­ing just how in­ac­cu­rate they are. Wired re­cently asked a surgery res­i­dent, An­nie Onishi, to cri­tique scenes from var­i­ous drama se­ries and movies. Fun­nily enough, slapping people to wake them up is not a thing, mu­sic in the op­er­at­ing theatre is a re­ally big thing, and the “mesen­tery never gets any love”:

Un­for­got­ten: Prince.
