If this installment is presented as scheduled, with new documentary footage covering the week in politics, I’m not sure how they’ll do it. Or what it will show. But when this series selected its subtitle, it had no idea how amazingly prescient it was being.

Zoey had a musical moment with Simon in her apartment in last week’s episode, in which he flirted with flirting with her as his internal singing voice belted out “Should I Stay Or Should I Go?” And now, with that romantic tension unresolved, Simon and Jessica hold their wedding. Expect lots of music, and not just from the wedding singer.

The assault on Hilltop went all-out last week, with our characters caught, at the cliffhanger climax, between a rock and a hard place. Except, in this instance, the rock was a wall of flame keeping them from retreating, and the hard place was a horde of still-advancing zombies.

SEASON PREMIERE: The Season 3 premiere of this big-budget HBO series is set in the “real world” of this somewhat dystopian, completely economically divided future, with Evan Rachel Wood’s vengeful robot Dolores, most prominently, infiltrating the glossy reality of her wealthy creators. Eventually, we’ll get back to the theme parks, and spend more time with Jeffrey Wright as Bernard, while introducing a new character, Caleb, played by Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad

What is it this season about TV series predicting real-life events with their story lines? This year, Homeland has been dealing with a possible presidential negotiation to end the long-running war with Afghanistan, and to reach a cease fire with the Taliban. But in last week’s episode, things seemed really, really bad for some of the characters, presidential and otherwise. And Saul and Carrie, at this point, could do nothing but watch helplessly as dire reports came back from the

Tonight’s episode has Larry David shopping for a new car, and revealing his concerns, preferences and dislikes – such as not caring about the color, because once he’s inside the car, he never sees it. There are only two episodes left this season, so enjoy them. I plan to.

On Friday, Bill Maher announced on his Real Time with Bill Maher show on HBO, which he performed with one guest appearing by satellite (the others showed up in person) and with his staffers serving as the only studio audience, that it would be his last show for a while, until the coronavirus concerns subsided a bit. And even before tonight’s Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is taped or televised, John Oliver has let it be known that tonight’s program will be a &

Tonight’s repeat of a classic Comedy Hour episode features Jefferson Airplane. It’s another rarity from Season 1, which has never been released on video, and also features Jonathan Winters and Nancy Wilson. But it’s the Airplane’s rendition of “Somebody to Love,” with Grace Slick and her bandmates performing in front of a psychedelic backdrop, that was a groundbreaking part of that 1967 program. And another part of that program, censored and not show

PREMIERE: Sarah Phelps, who recently adapted Agatha Christie’s Ordeal by Innocence very successfully as a multi-part TV mystery drama, does it again with another Christie mystery. This one, presented in two parts and televised in the U.K. last month, stars Rufus Sewell as man with very personal reasons for solving a series of mysteries. For a full review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.

SERIES PREMIERE: This new Netflix series originates from another country: Norway, to be specific, where it’s known under the title of Blodtur. It’s a horror anthology series in which a half-dozen passengers board a mysterious bus, each telling a different eerie story before disembarking. Six twisted tales, as the promo announces. And six subtitled stories. If you’ve seen any TV series or movies from Norway, you know just the type of bleakness and weirdness to expect.
