What To Watch: 03/05/2020

No shortage of new shows led by FX’s first program exclusively debuting on Hulu.

 

KATHERINE’S PICK:
Devs [Hulu]
This thriller-slash-drama stars Sonoya Mizuno, a woman investigating a technology company she suspects is behind the disappearance of her boyfriend. And no big deal, but the company is led by a long-haired Nick Offerman.

BRAD’S PICK:
Castlevania [Netflix]
Sure, Sonic is hogging the spotlight at the moment, but — for many fans — the anime version of Castlevania is considered the best video game adaptation ever. It’s back for a third season today, so if you haven’t checked it out yet, now’s your chance. Though I have to remind you — it’s not for kids.

JASON’S PICK:
Better Things [FX, 10p]
After picking up her kids from vacation, a Pamela Adlon looks at fifty! Adlon and her testament to defeat and survival have survived to the fourth season and the world is a better place for it.

ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:

200305cake

  • The Cartoon Sushi dream of the ’90s is alive in FXX’s Cake. The quirky animated anthology returns tonight for a second season.
  • The dating-in-adjoining-pods-til-you-fall-in-love genre is now populated with one title as Netflix’s experiment can look back at itself with Life Is Blind: The Reunion.
  • Oddly enough, there’s two titles in the fall-in-love-and-have-19-children reality bucket, and one of them, Up’s Bringing Up Bates starts its ninth go-around tonight.

200305vegas

  • If we’re going by name alone, our favorite new show of the night is Vegas Chef Prizefight. The Food Network show is pretty self-explanatory. It’s the story of a six friends in New York City whose stories of love and success intersect and who meet daily at a coffeeshop called Central Perk, right?
  • MTV’s latest family reality show is The Busch Family Brewed. Go home, MTV, you’re drunk! (and have you noticed how they haven’t played music videos for the last thirty years?).
  • If you wondered if Investigation Discovery could make a show that sounds as generically an ID Network program as possible, we present My Murder Story. It’s so low key, we could not even find an official page.
