SEASON PREMIERE: The first season of this outstanding crime series, which is a moody period piece about the original formation of the FBI’s serial killer profiler unit, made my Top 10 list in 2017.

The summer of our unpredictable political climate continues – and weeks after his brief break, so does Bill Maher. He’s worth listening to, because he was one of the few on-air voices, political or comic, who predicted in 2016 that Donald Trump might actually win.

This is not a recommendation: I warned about last week’s premiere of BH90210 based on circumstantial evidence, noting that Fox was dumping the series in August, a year before its 30thanniversary, and not previewing the show for critics. As it turned out, Fox did make the initial episode available, but not until days before its on-air premiere. At any rate, I was right then – and after seeing last week’s premiere, I’m even firmer in my conviction. This is&nb
