MINISERIES PREMIERE: This new three-hour version of the Louisa May Alcott classic is presented over two Sundays: the first hour tonight, and the concluding two hours next week. Maya Hawke stars as Jo, but the biggest names, in this new TV adaptation of the tale of close-knit Massachusetts siblings during the Civil War, are not the actresses playing the March sisters, but the elder generation of parents and neighbors. They’re played by Emily Watson, Angela Lansbury, and Singing Detective st

Last week’s episode was an exciting and unpredictable one, with hit woman Villanelle (Jodie Comer) breaking into the home of Eve (Sandra Oh), the British intelligent agent hot on her trail – and asking for some dinner. These characters are written so well, and so quirkily, that you never know quite what they’ll do or so, which is half the fun. Last week, for example, when a man about to be killed by Eve begged for his life by saying he had children, Eve replied by asking what s

In some respects, this past week arguably has been President Donald Trump’s most embraced and impressive. In other respects, there’s the loose cannon that is Rudy Giuliani, and the heat-seeking, newsmaking missile that is Michael Avenatti. Presumably, today The Circus covers both ends of the spectrum.

SEASON FINALE: Barry has grown stronger and more impressive each episode – and last week, allowed both Barry and the actor playing him, Bill Hader, to do some intense, involving acting. And tonight, Barry tries to take control of his life, which might well mean taking the life of one or two others. Or maybe more…

What The Circus does Sunday nights on Showtime, this program does the same night on HBO. Except with this one, the laughs are more intentional than rueful. And no, John Oliver didn’t self-cancel his show last week, celebrating a career-high victory after getting an Australian koala chlamydia ward named after him by Russell Crowe. The rest is true – but not the part about Oliver quitting. He’s still here, I’m very, very pleased to report… with a new installment of L

MINISERIES PREMIERE:  This new Showtime miniseries stars Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role, playing a British aristocrat with a serious drug addiction – and a childhood past more than dark enough to explain it. Based on the semi-autobiographical novels by Edward St. Aubyn, this five -part drama is darkly comic in spots, and just plain dark in others. But because of the performances, you won’t want to miss it. That goes for Cumberbatch, most certainly, who makes you feel bot

SERIES PREMIERE: The original “Rocky & Bullwinkle” cartoon series from the late 1950s and early 1960s, Rocky & His Friends and The Bullwinkle Show, may have been my first personal examples of Must-See TV. So the idea that Amazon Prime is reviving the show after all these years is good news, but also news that’s laced with a bit of apprehension – especially since Amazon didn’t make any episodes available for preview. After watching the first few episodes of t

SEASON PREMIERE: This is Season 3 for this confidently entertaining and informative showcase for Bill Nye, and it begins with an episode about death – a bold and typically intriguing way to dive into the intersection of science and… everything else. Tyler the Creator guest stars in the opener, which taught me a cool new vocabulary word: apoptosis. As they say, you can look it up…

Only two episodes left this season – and the powers that be, in Gotham, are beginning to reveal their true natures – and true identities. Jeremiah, not Jerome, is now the maniacal joker-faced villain ruling the city. And Lee and the Riddler are a power couple vying for equal attention, as, tonight, Jim Gordon gets in all of their way. And pays some consequences…

SEASON FINALE: “Crabs in a Barrel” is the title of tonight’s Season 2 finale – and the tone and content of last year’s Season 1 finale was so attention-getting, and so it impressive, this year’s edition surely is one to make special effort to catch.

The Handmaid's Tale: Season One

This 2017 Hulu series adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian tale garnered multiple awards including eight Emmys, which also set it apart as the first streaming series to win Outstanding Drama Series. Starring Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) as an unwilling captive forced into child-bearing servitude, the series is an acclaimed cautionary tale of theocracy and militarism coming to political power. Handmaid’s Tale second season is scheduled for this summer. The DVD box set is available here for $25 and available here for Prime Video streaming. –Eric Gould
