SEASON PREMIERE: Many series these days return from hiatus between seasons having jumped ahead in their narrative time lines – a year later, three years later, or, in the case of Roseanne, many, many years later. But The Handmaid’s Tale, fresh from its Emmy win as Outstanding Drama Series, returns by picking up right where it left off: With our oppressed heroine, played so powerfully by Elisabeth Moss, being escorted by force from the home where she was assigned (i.e. imprisoned) as

The summit meeting is getting closer, which means the need for inside intel, on both sides of the Soviet power struggle, is more heightened than ever. Elizabeth and Philip are working the same mission now, but for different sides. And on her side, Elizabeth, with help from her handler, Claudia (Margo Martindale), is getting daughter Paige more and more involved.

SEASON PREMIERE: Archer, as an animated secret agent spoof series, was funny enough its first seven seasons. Then, after almost killing its titular spy character in that year’s season finale, returned with Archer and company in an entirely new time and place, and most of the characters with new identities. Turns out Archer was in a coma, and dreaming an entire other world, Singing Detective-style. So Season 8 was a film noir fantasy, and Season 9, starting tonight, continues the start-from

SEASON PREMIERE: For Season 2, Hank Azaria’s on-the-skids baseball announcer Brockmire has worked his way up from the depths just enough to be faced with several new obstanles, opportunities and/or adversaries. He’s now in New Orleans, announcing games for the Atlanta Braves’ AAA team, but jockeying for attention and advancement opposite a new broadcast rival, Raj (Utkarsh Ambudkar), and dealing with an Atlanta Braves PR representative, Whitney, played by Dreama Walker from Don

Last night, this show’s Top 12 performed their own cover versions of songs that meant a lot to them personally. Tonight, one of those singers is eliminated from the competition – which means that for one of those artists, the song they chose will never again resonate quite so sweetly.

SEASON PREMIERE: When you start with Einstein, what can you possibly do for an encore? In the case of Genius, you find another astoundingly original thinker to examine in a multi-part biographical drama. And just as with this show’s examination of Albert Einstein last season, which had Johnny Flynn playing the genius as a young man and Geoffrey Rush his more mature counterpart, this new Genius divides the title role between two actors. Alex Rich plays the painter as a younger man, and the

Last week’s episode of Legion was so original, so unpredictable, so inventively visual, I did a special review of it on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross. This follow-up episode doesn’t disappoint, or let up on the drama’s mystery-laden momentum. Legion creator Noah Hawley presents an episode tonight that is a full hour of a visual and logical puzzle – a warped cross between Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Groundhog Day, in which David (Dan Stevens) keeps

In tonight’s new episode, the lawyers at Redding, Boseman and Lockhart take on an incendiary case, one in which an African-American undercover cop was shot, and crippled, by another Chicago officer. Representing the other officer is legendary lawyer Solomon Waltzer, played by the real-life legendary Alan Alda.

Episode 3 of this playful and perverse new series – TV’s most twisted take on a serial murderer since Dexter – starts with the latest target of hit woman Villanelle (Jodie Comer) indulging in some kinky fun during a business trip checking himself into a “medical facility” staffed by a dominatrix. Unfortunately for him, the establishment’s usual purveyor of pain and pleasure has been replaced for the day – with Villanelle, wearing a black wig and flashing

Last week’s season premiere was almost breathtaking, because it was virtually breathless: John Heilemann, Mark McKinnon and new Circus correspondent Alex Wagner (replacing the disgraced Mark Halperin) covered three countries in the half-hour premiere: Russia (talking with both an official state media executive and an undercover worker at one of Russia’s fake-news rumor mills), England (getting reaction to the poisoning of two Russians on British soil), and the U.S., where President T

The Handmaid's Tale: Season One

This 2017 Hulu series adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian tale garnered multiple awards including eight Emmys, which also set it apart as the first streaming series to win Outstanding Drama Series. Starring Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) as an unwilling captive forced into child-bearing servitude, the series is an acclaimed cautionary tale of theocracy and militarism coming to political power. Handmaid’s Tale second season is scheduled for this summer. The DVD box set is available here for $25 and available here for Prime Video streaming. –Eric Gould
