SPECIAL PREMIERE: This is a filmed version of Anna Deavere Smith’s one-man play about what she calls the school-to-prison pipeline, which she also wrote. I probably should write “one-woman” play, to be gender-specific – but since among the many characters she portrays here, several are men, I’m letting it slide. But Smith, like Hal Holbrook in his one-man portrayals of Mark Twain in Mark Twain Tonight!, is equally impressive in terms of performance and research. In

Tonight’s penultimate installment of Blue Planet II is “Coasts,” and it’s devoted to the places where the sea meets the land. And, as always, the photography is nothing less than stunning. To hear or read my new review on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, visit the Fresh Air website.

MIDSEASON PREMIERE: This new live-action reboot of The Tick is back with new episodes – six more, bringing the output to date to an even dozen. The humor is broad but funny – one of these new, sci-fi-flavored episodes is titled “My Dinner with Android” – and Yara Martinez from Jane the Virgin, as one of the show’s recurring villains, is a standout. Peter Serafinowicz stars as the blue-costumed superhero.

SERIES PREMIERE: Famed Momofuku celebrity chef David Chang comes to Netflix with his own series, which is focused on two things: internationally mixed flavors, and home-style cooking. He has celebrity guests in each episode, but it’s the dishes that are the real stars.

Tonight’s new episode makes room on Graham Norton’s couch for one very interesting pair of guests: From I, Tonya, it’s Margot Robbie and Allison Janney.

On tonight’s new episode, in this final season of Portlandia, Tracee Ellis Ross guest stars as a “photo booth coach.” Whatever that is.

Opposite the Olympics, Fox is repeating a recent episode of The X-Files, but it’s my favorite episode in years – so if you didn’t see “The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat” when it was broadcast recently, directed and co-written by the delightfully twisted Darin Morgan, here’s another opportunity. Don’t miss it, because this episode begins with a Twilight Zone-like black-and-white sequence featuring a mysterious alien – and from that point on, never stop

The title of this week’s new Nature installment is anything but hyperbole. Sudan, pictured here, is the very last male Northern White Rhinoceros known to exist on the planet. (There’s a mother-daughter pair, but neither can raise young.) Sudan is 43 years old, with an ancestry that goes back five million years – and teams of biologists, zoologists and other scientists are searching frantically for a way to prolong the species while caring for Sudan.

SERIES PREMIERE: It’s a premiere in the U.S., anyway. In the U.K., this period series, inspired by the classic Frankenstein tale, premiered in 2015, and presented two six-episode seasons – both of which are available, beginning today, on Netflix. Sean Bean, who played Ned Stark in HBO’s Game of Thrones, stars as John Marlott, an inspector in 19th-century London who investigates a case of children’s bodies found floating in the river, minus various body parts.

Roseanne: The Complete Series

Roseanne is scheduled to return to ABC for nine episodes in March, 20 years after it went off the air. Most of the original cast is returning, include Roseanne Barr and her television spouse Dan, played by John Goodman, whose character will be revived (along with the show) even though he died in the prior series finale. Roseanne’s chiming chord with the working middle class was the series main draw, making it the most popular sitcom for a time. Producers are betting that, along with its reunion appeal (as with the recent reboot of Will & Grace) will make a success. On sale at Amazon for $25. –Eric Gould
