MINISERIES PREMIERE: This new six-part miniseries stars Chris Pine as a washed-up newspaper reporter in 1965, who ends up reheating a cold case that winds its way all the way back to infamous Black Dahlia murder, and beyond. India Eisley, from The Secret Life of the American Teenager, stars as a teenager whose past, and lineage, are crucial to his investigation.

The television series M*A*S*H premiered on CBS in 1972, and fast established itself as one of the best and most popular series in TV history.  But before there was a sitcom, brilliantly developed by Larry Gelbart and Gene Reynolds, there was a movie, brilliantly directed two years before by Robert Altman. It had a slightly meaner tone than the TV series, but was full  of Altman’s trademark overlapping dialogue, visually frenetic staging, improvised moments, and waves of very dark

This 2018 comedy movie concerns a group of friends who have played the same unending game of tag for 30 years – and who conspire to finally tag the one player who’s never been “it.” The cast of this film is an unusual mix: Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm, Hannibal Buress, Ed Helms, Jake Johnson.

As it’s televised in the United States, tonight’s episode of Dynasties, “Chimpanzees,” is the second in the series. You might presume, like I did, it would be less bloody and brutal than last week’s opener, “Lions,” but you’d be mistaken. There’s a lot of conflict in this particular group of chimps – it’s a jungle out there.

Tonight’s guest host is James McAvoy, and the musical is rapper Meek Mill. Given the week’s news events, expect the cold open political sketch to dominate the show – at least until “Weekend Update” kicks in.
