Part 4. The conclusion of this documentary series brings us up to date – very, very up to date, covering an investigation involving, in one way or another, the FBI, the Supreme Court, the Justice Department, the White House, and more… With the latest salvos dropped just last Friday.

SEASON FINALE: Not counting the usual Christmas telemovie special, this is the last we’ll see of the first female Doctor, played by Jodie Whittaker, for a while. So enjoy…

SEASON PREMIERE: I’m not sure where, much left how, we last left J.K. Simmons in this moody dual-universe thriller. In the cliffhanger last season, Simmons’ Howard Silk had killed Stephen Rea’s Alexander Pope – an act that has consequences in both worlds, and for both Silk and his doppelgänger. For a full review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.

MIDSEASON FINALE: In tonight’s new episode, Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) finally reunites with Greg, and he’s a new man. Or, at least, played by one. The character used to be portrayed by Santino Fontana, but, beginning tonight, is played by Skylar Astin from Pitch Perfect. And unlike the switch of the two Darrins on Bewitched in the 1960s, this time the swap is noticed. Sort of.

Steve Carell, star of the upcoming (and very interesting-looking) Welcome to Marwen, is one of tonight’s guest stars, along with Dawn French, Michael B. Jordan, and Ruth Wilson.

MIDSEASON FINALE: In the most recent episode of this always surprising and evolving series, Michael’s inhuman assistant Janet saved the day – then saved everyone by whisking them into her realm. It’s a mystical place we’ve never seen, but is the place where Janet, and all her lookalike, Siri-like counterparts, were created. And tonight’s new episode, the last before a two-month hiatus, is called “Janet(s),” so I’m guessing we’re going to enco

SEASON PREMIERE: This American version of The Great British Bake-Off lasted only a few episodes into its third season when it was pulled after one of its judges, pastry chef Johnny Iuzzini, was accused of several counts of sexual misconduct. He’s gone for this holiday-themed, and holiday-timed, Season 4, which pairs returning judge Paul Hollywood with new judge Sherry Yard. And as the hosts this season, ABC is presenting Anthony Adams and former Spice Girl Emma Bunton, a.k.a. Baby Spice. I

SEASON PREMIERE: After a marvelous Season 1, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel stunned everyone at the most recent Emmy awards – winning, among other things, best supporting actress (Alex Borstein, as Midge Maisel’s dedicated manager), best actress (Rachel Brosnanan, in the title role), best comedy writing (for co-creator Amy Sherman-Palladino), and, the biggest plum of all for Amazon, Outstanding Comedy Series. Each and every Emmy was well deserved – and Tony Shalhoub, as Midge’

MIDSEASON FINALE: Everyone’s cornered, or angry, or both – and for this confrontational midseason finale, Polaris (at right) has not only a new intensity, and a new mission, but a newly fashioned (and, to her, meaningful) headband.
