One of our editors picks a show that’s a homonym of her name — remember Homonym! — we miss 30 Rock‘s shows within their show. KATHERINE’S PICK: Catherine The Great [HBO, 10p] Helen Mirren stars in the much-anticipated, four-part series about the Russian monarch. The … Continue reading What To Watch: 10/21/2019
We’re gonna do a two vs. two as we split (coincidentally enough along gender lines) between the new Paul Rudd show and a star-studded, NY Times inspired anthology. JASON’S PICK: Living With Yourself [Netflix] Call it Multiplicity careens into Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind … Continue reading What To Watch: 10/18/2019
The Screen Scholars are all about action this Tuesday — even if that action is simply city slickers stumbling their way through farm life, and sliding into friendship with the elusive David Koechner and Lennon Parnham. We’re also surprisingly curious about USA Network shows for … Continue reading What To Watch: 10/15/2019
On 30 Rock, Jon Hamm in a nurse’s outfit once requested Don Cheadle on a bed of rice. We miss that show. In any case, the actual Oscar-nom’d actor graces the second season return of Desus & Maro. We’ve also tonight have the return of Hulu’s weirder Canadian cousin of Portlandia and a PBS expose of the dangerous vilification and surveillance of Arab-Americans.
Desus & Mero [Showtime, 11p]
Don Cheadle is Desus and Mero’s Illustrious Guest on the debut of part two of season one.
Black Lightning [The CW, 9p]
Freeland is under occupation and are heroes aren’t doing the best. Jefferson and Lynn are bumping heads and Jennifer feels helpless despite her powers.
POV: The Feeling Of Being Watched [PBS, 10p]
The vaunted PBS docu-thology delves into a disturbing underside of our quest for freedom — the oft-dueling ideas of protection of civil liberties and desire for security — an especially delicate (and sinister) balance when it comes on the backs of Arab-Americans.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- Hulu is somehow seven seasons deep into the muddy Canadian waters of the fictional Letterkenny, and you can watch that seventh go-around today.
- While the likely double-murderer has withdrawn, the definite enabler is still active on this latest season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, so if you watch this show for no other reason, do it to rid the public eye of the useless Sean Spicer — and seriously f-them for using him as their promo video this week.
- If you’re just getting over The Blair Witch Project, then Travel Channel has just the show not for you in These Woods Are Haunted, back for a second season tonight.
- Now, if your jam was Hannibal and you love Michael Sheen, then checking out horror procedural Prodigal Son, in its early stages on Fox.
Not much debuting — save a fun Lifetime flick (see below) — but HBO’s 1%er version of Survivor shuts its doors for its second season with the possible betrayal of one of the main characters on the menu. JASON’S PICK: Succession [HBO, 9p] Who will Daddy … Continue reading What To Watch: 10/13/2019
It’s our Saturday WtW, which this time of the year is really just a source for who’s on SNL. This week, that would be David Harbour (which is kind of a dead giveaway to Hopper’s ultimate fate on Stranger Things). JASON’S PICK: Saturday Night Live [NBC, 11:30p] … Continue reading What To Watch: 10/12/2019
Vince Gilligan seems to never want to leave the Bad-iverse, and now along with going backwards to chronicle the rise of Saul Goodman, he looks forward to see just where the f Jesse was going after crashing that El Camino through the gates. Also, … Continue reading What To Watch: 10/11/2019
