It’s a mostly quiet Monday, but one of Britain’s most fun mysteries returns, along with a pair of Netflix documentary debuts. Meanwhile, the CW has your superhero fix.
Agatha Raisin and the Haunted House [Acorn TV]
Turn up the quaintly quirky as Agatha Raisin, the hot messiest of all UK crime solvers (and they can be a neurotic bunch to begin with) tackles a new case. There will also most certainly be an unwise flirtation in the mix, because that’s how Agatha do. I’m at a loss to explain the appeal of this series, but can only offer that it’s a lot of fun.
Black Lightning [The CW, 9p]
The situation in Freeland is deteriorating quickly and Jefferson and Lynn have to adapt even quicker to stay ahead of the madness.
