‘Wayne’ (YouTube Premium)

By providing an international video platform to anyone with a smartphone and a rudimentary command of the internet, YouTube changed the meaning of what constitutes television. Still, it was no surprise to find a pay-to-enter gated community erected within this vast democracy: YouTube Premium (originally YouTube Red). Programming skews young, as in the gig-economy comedy “Liza on Demand” and the teen telekinesis drama “Impulse.” Best of all is “Wayne,” which delicately balances comedy and drama, darkness and light, sweetness and violence as it follows working-class teenagers Mark McKenna and Ciara Bravo and their various pursuers on a quest to recover an inherited muscle car. Which is, of course, a quest for something bigger.
