You take it for granted – at least I do – that there are many movies that remain part of the cultural conversation, that have been seen by virtually everyone of adult age. Except, as I keep teaching young adults year after year, I find that supposition to be somewhat shaky. The ways young people used to absorb TV and films from prior generations, such as afternoon TV syndication and late-night movie showcases, no longer exist as such, or are viewed far less by younger audiences.

This is the second episode of this new Fox vampire series, and enough happens tonight that it’s fair to say the plot thickens – or maybe even coagulates.

It’s a tale of two quarterbacks: New England Patriots reigning veteran Tom Brady on one side, Kansas City Chiefs wonder boy Patrick Mahomes on the other. But today’s game also is a tale of very cold weather – though today’s forecasts have walked back on the threats of snow, so passing game may be very much in play.

Season 3 continues, at a similarly slow pace, but with much better characters and a story line, than Season 2. Mahershala Ali stars, playing a dedicated detective in three different time lines.
