What to Watch: 05/23/2018

Today’s slate of recommendations are all over the place, so you’re bound to find something you like. Katherine even dove back to roughly a decade before the time of televisions being widely available for her choice. Yes, we’d do that for you!

BRAD’S PICK:
The Expanse [Syfy, 9p]
This critically acclaimed sci-fi series may have been saved from cancellation by Amazon so don’t despair fans even as this season heads towards an end. A new presence comes from the edge of the solar system. Also, Naomi recommits to her roots.

JASON’S PICK:
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit [NBC, 9p]
The last remaining bloodline of this ripped-from-the-headlines family finishes off its 19th season with a trippy double-episode featuring a helpless Marissa Hargitay, Ice-T, and the gang trying to stop an online killer. With its already promised next season, it matches its predecessor and Gunsmoke as the scripted drama with the most years on television.

KATHERINE’S PICK:
After the Thin Man [TCM, 9p]
Sure, you’ve seen The Thin Man, it airs often. But have you seen the second film in the Thin Man series? Join glamorous Nick and Nora in San Francisco as they sleuth around the city in pursuit of a murderer.

  • FX’s 80s Ruskie spy duo are not rushin’ (get it? Bojack didn’t!) to get to the end of its sixth season as both Elizabeth and Philip are torn asunder by both their internal voices and external rivals on The Americans. They do only have one more hour to figure it all out as next week is its final episode ever.
  • Divorce lawyers are at the center of The Split, the latest British import on Sundance.
  • Netflix and Vox team up to bring us the informational docu-series Explained–think Adam Ruins Everything minus Adam Conover’s sarcastic scolding.
