THE CRIMSON PETAL AND THE WHITE
Encore, 8:00 p.m. ET
MINISERIES PREMIERE: Put simply, this new Encore miniseries, about a resourceful, vengeful, yet not uncaring prostitute in 1874 London, is more involving, and offers more captivating performances, than any new series on the fall TV schedule. Romola Garai is the prostitute Sugar, Gillian Anderson plays her madam and Chris O’Dowd plays the meek but well-positioned man whom Sugar targets as her way to a better life – and to seek out her revenge against all men in general. Concludes Tuesday, same time.
