Last week’s episode contained the most chilling TV husband-and-wife argument since the final season of The Sopranos, when Tony threw Carmela against a wall. There was no violence this time – though there was later, when Philip practice sparred with daughter Paige to demonstrate she wasn’t as adept a close-combat fighter as she thought she was – but the emotions, on both sides, were seething. And tonight, though Elizabeth has made it clear she has little use for Philip rig

Last week, in a segment called “Greatest Feminists in Feminism Herstory,” Samantha Bee honed in on Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The segment was headlined “Part 1,” suggesting there was more to come. That’s good news – but there’s been so much other news this week already, I don’t expect an immediate reprise.

The last two episodes of Legion, giving us extended head trips into the complex minds of Syd and Lenny, respectively, have been so inventive and exciting and unpredictable, I could hardly watch them without leaning fully forward. And tonight, in an episode I haven’t previewed, we accompany David (Dan Stevens) as he’s taken on a tour, and takes us on one, through a series of alternate realities – including one in which he’s long-haired, bearded and homeless (pictured).

In tonight’s episode, the elder Picasso (Antonio Banderas) sets out to introduce his lover Francoise to his other current lover, Dora. “I have no rules,” he announces. And then he finds out if they do…

MINISERIES PREMIERE: When this eight-part drama series premiered in the U.K., a reviewer for The Guardian called it “Big Little Lies relocated to rural Wales.” Overseas, two versions of the drama were filmed twice simultaneously: one with the cast speaking Welsh, the other with them speaking English. (The same idyllic and charming Welsh setting, however, figures in both.) Eve Myles, familiar from both Broadchurch and Torchwood, plays Faith Howells, a wife and mother whose husband and

Episode 2 of James Cameron’s very personal look at science fiction is devoted to the topic of “Space.” And once again, the best elements are not always the clips from TV shows and movies, which don’t always seem weighed and selected with the proper historical perspective. Instead, the most fascination bits are when Cameron sits and talks, one on one, with some of his fellow filmmakers and genre visionaries. Steven Spielberg was great last week, for example, and tonight th

The women of Westworld continue to marshal forces and pursue their agendas, in ways that put themselves in danger – but everyone who either sides with or opposes them, as well. Tonight, Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) keeps moving, while Maeve (Thandie Newton, pictured) keeps gathering forces. And in their wake, both women leave a trail of blood, and bodies. Mostly repairable host bodies, but still…

The investigation of the Ice Juice scandal has both Axe and Chuck maneuvering to cover their respective tracks and eliminate their vulnerabilities – which pulls two of the show’s most powerful supporting characters, Asia Kate Dillon as Taylor and Maggie Siff as Wendy, directly into the fray.

Tonight’s guest host is Donald Glover, star of Atlanta and, before that, co-star of Community. And tonight’s musical guest is Grammy-winning rap artist Childish Gambino. Any resemblance to Glover is strictly unavoidable: Donald Glover and Childish Gambino are the same person. As they say on certain social media websites: It’s complicated….

Once a month, David Letterman returns with a new installment of his Netflix talk show, and with a new guest. Tonight, it’s someone who’s conquered late-night TV as Letterman has, but, unlike Letterman, also has tasted major success in prime time, the movies, and, more recently, on Broadway: Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, and cinema and the stage’s Mean Girls creator, Tina Fey.

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
