What To Watch: 10/17/2022

We can debate Justin Roiland all you want, but it’s hard to deny his offbeat animated series have one hell of a fanbase, and it’s not always the bad kind. Today, Hulu revives one of his short-lived creations for a Halloween special. There’s also no shortage of important documentaries to imbibe on this Monday, including a second part to one of HBO’s recent triumphs.

The Paloni Show: Halloween Special [Hulu]
It’s spooky season and you know what that means! Halloween specials! Hulu hosts one case as Justin Roiland’s animated Cheruce Paloni hosts a Halloween special full of spooky shorts from a group of up-and-coming animators. Yes the Paloni Show! Halloween Special hits Hulu today. It’s not Halloween Ends but should be a lot of fun.

The Vow, Part II [HBO, 9p]
The cult of cult-exposing documentaries continues to grow, so there certainly will be some excitement around this second part of HBO’s examination of the weird, TV-star-boasting NXIVM sex cult. What more is there to learn about it–well, as always, tune in!


  • When an ex-President continually is calling a pandemic by racist Asian-hate baiting names, you know you have a serious problem. The PBS special Rise Against Asian Hate: One Day in March profiles the heroes who are fighting against the gathering stormclouds of anti-Asian racism.
  • While its title may conjure up memories of Ripley using a forklift to fight a Xenomorph to save Newt, No One Can Hear You Scream is a new Investigation Discovery show about much more terrestrial slayings–well, unless you consider Georgia alien land, and if they elect Herschel Walker to the Senate, we’d be ready to kick the state into the stratosphere.
  • We’ll close this round-up with a cool pun that announces the Food Network’s latest spin-off, Kids Baking Championship: Trick or Eat.
