The first two installments of this multi-installment AMC documentary series have been shown by the network after midnight on Sundays. This was, in part, to piggyback on the large genre audience already assembled by the network for that night’s new editions of The Walking Dead and Talking Dead (to make that linkage unavoidably clear, the inaugural episode of Eli Roth’s History of Horror, televised the same night as the season premiere of The Walking Dead, was devoted to, and titled, &

At a time when the supernatural on television tends to turn graphically violent, the BBC and PBS deliver something closer to intrigue bordering on elegance in the classic quasi-ghost story The Woman in White...

Yes, The Simpsons has been churning out these annual, anything-goes Treehouse of Horror fantasy anthologies for XXIX years now. That’s astounding. And these installments always are among the show’s most inventive, because there are no rules, and most segments include the death of at least one familiar character along the way. Tonight’s show includes a segment spoofing Jurassic Park, in which at least one of the prize specimens is Jurassic, or at least geriatric, in her own righ

This week’s show covers three key Senate races in the 2018 midterms – and covers them by sending correspondents there to test political temperatures at ground level. John Heilemann goes to North Dakota to interview Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (pictured); Alex Wagner interviews another Democrat, Nevada Representative Jacky Rosen, who’s running for the Senate opposite Republican incumbent Dean Heller; and Mark McKinnon travels to Arizona to cover both sides of one of the most

Jodie Whittaker, as the newest Doctor, has established both her presence and her personality, as well as a handy little alien self-defense move that’s even cooler than Spock’s Vulcan nerve pinch. Tonight, the Doctor takes the TARDIS, and the new companions, on a road trip through time, and to the planet Earth. The date: 1955. The place: Montgomery, AL. The person encountered there, whose historic contributions may be in danger of being altered by others: Rosa Parks (Vinette Robinson,

The bridge needs to be rebuilt – infrastructure is key, even after the apocalypse – and the different communities team up to accomplish that mission. But not without a lot of conflict, which has Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Carol (Melissa McBride) holding off a mutiny, and Daryl and Maggie (Lauren Cohan) taking off on their own (pictured). Maintaining the peace is tricky... but I guess they'll cross that bridge when they come to it...

Both bartender Vincent (James Franco) and aspiring filmmaker Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) are tasting success at the moment, which means change, and conflict, for both of them. Vincent may want to chuck it all, and give up life on the Deuce for a more mainstream existence in the suburbs, happily nested with Abby (Margarita Levieva). Candy, meanwhile, is wrapping up her “Red Hot” X-rated film version of the Little Red Riding Hood story – a project that has begun to attract both att

MINISERIES PREMIERE: This new five-part miniseries import from Great Britain takes a novel published in 1859, Wilkie Collins’ The Woman in White, and adapts it anew, staying very close to the gothic novels’ plot, setting and characters, yet structuring the conflicts in such a way that it becomes a grippingly relevant drama about women’s rights and oppressions. Filmed in northern Ireland, this version stars Jessie Buckley as Marian Halcombe, who argues in court to protect the ri

First let’s get this out of the way -- and quickly. Those who have accused HBO and Peter Dinklage of “whitewashing” the role of Hervé Villechaize are at best uninformed idiots...

MOVIE PREMIERE: The basic description of this new HBO telemovie makes it sound like a comic tossaway: a journalist interviews the former Fantasy Island co-star, Herve Villechaize, about a decade after the actor had been dismissed from that show for demanding a pay raise for playing Tattoo (“De plane! De plane!”). But My Dinner with Herve is neither comic nor a tossaway. Based on actual interviews conducted by reporter Sacha Gervasi in 1993, this drama stars Jamie Dornan of Fifty Shad
