SERIES PREMIERE: Damon Lindelof has taken Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ landmark comic series and basically pulled a Fargo. But not quite: He’s continuing and expanding the original story, but by dealing with different eras and characters.

Yesterday, when I recorded and distributed the Best TV Tomorrow video for Saturday (now today: how time flies), and said there basically was nothing so compelling on TV that it qualified as “best,” I encouraged you to turn off the TV and go live your lives. (See my non-recommendation here.) But that was before the New York Yankees beat the Houston Astros 4-1 in last night’s Game 5.
