SERIES PREMIERE: If you’re a fan of nature documentaries, you’ve probably already seen footage of the animals of Singapore – not the ones in the unpopulated areas, but the monkeys and other creatures who have found a way to not only survive, but thrive, in the dense city landscape. Now there’s a whole series devoted to that city, and topic – and it gives entertaining new meaning to the term “urban jungle.”

Tomorrow night, this CNN documentary series on the cinema will premiere an installment devoted to “The Seventies,” one of my favorite decades of film. But tonight, as an out-of-sequence appetizer, CNN is repeating the three episodes of The Movies it has aired thus far, covering the 1980s to the present. It’s a great way to catch up, and get set for what’s still to come.

SERIES PREMIERE: Gordon Ramsay seems to be all over the Fox schedule – but for this new National Geographic series, he sets out to conquer the world. Or, at least, to visit it, one remote community at a time. The setting for the premiere is Peru’s Sacred Valley, and Ramsay tours the area, climbs trees, samples food, and even cooks his own variations on local recipes. The program’s eagerness to go to distant places and try unusual things is a nod to, if not a petty theft of, the

SERIES PREMIERE: When Garth Ennis’ graphic novel The Boys came out in 2006, the idea of a superhero supergroup approached as a global conglomerate – with missions, costumes, team-ups and other decisions based on corporate research and profit margins – was a bit unusual, even seditious. But now, in a world where DC Comics and Marvel characters are rolled out in ever-expanding universes on both TV and in the cinema, that cold-blooded ruthlessness and calculated greed se

SEASON PREMIERE: Orange Is the New Black is one of the shows that established Netflix as a programming service to be taken seriously. Today, Netflix presents the seventh and final season of Orange, giving all of its surviving characters a well-deserved prison break.

Last week’s episode of S.H.I.E.L.D., which had to do with an alien antagonist moving among the bodies of the team and temporarily taking over their consciousness, may have been the most clever and entertaining installment of the series in a couple years. If you were thinking of giving up on this show as just one more tired entry in Marvel’s TV universe, don’t jump the ship just yet. Not while that ship is pirated and piloted by that very same malevolent entity, now he

With Toy Story 4 now in theaters, and toys from Toy Story 4 filling toy shelves (go look – it’s scary), now’s the time to revisit how all this began. And Freeform is presenting a double-header tonight of the first two computer-animated entries in this fabulous franchise: 1995’s Toy Story, followed by 1999’s Toy Story 2.
