    "Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways" (HBO, Fridays). It's often the case nowadays that a big-time recording artist or act will accompany a new release with a making-of documentary, and is sometimes the case that that documentary, which is, after all, a kind of commercial, will make its way to some respectable television outlet that will present it as something above and apart from an ad. (Just as I finished writing that sentence, the United Parcel Service delivered a DVD screener of "Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued," a "Showtime® Documentary" set to air Nov. 21; this is like that.) But "Sonic Highways" is something different and literally more -- it's an eight-part series, created and directed by Foo Fighters founder Dave Grohl, who previously directed the 2013 documentary feature "Sound City," about a fabled San Fernando Valley recording studio, to which "Sonic Highways" is a kind of peripatetic sequel. And although it features the band recording and performing songs from its about-to-drop new album, it is more generally about the making of music and the making of musicians, as the ineluctable product of influences and experiences; and the historical sound-culture of the several cities in which the Foo Fighters traveled to make what I still call their new "record"; and the creation of community and of character.
