In tonight’s new Episode 4 of this modern vampire drama, the little girl gets loose whose blood and lineage may be central to a “cure” for medically induced psychic vampirism – loose in the woods with the man determined to protect her. The episode title suggests at some violence ahead: It’s called “Whose Blood Is That?”

TNT premiered this new mystery miniseries after the Golden Globes, repeating its opener in its regularly scheduled Monday time slot a day later. Now, one week after that, finally comes Episode 2, with the teenager Fauna traveling to Los Angeles in 1965 to seek out her mysterious grandparents – the start of the unraveling of a series of hidden secrets going all the way back to the Black Dahlia murder from decades before. Chris Pine, India Eisley star.

The episode presented tonight, in this new Dynasties nature series from abroad, is all about tigers. We’ve already had an episode devoted to lions. So what, you ask, is likely to follow lions and tigers? That’s easy: In order, it’s got to be: Lions, and Tigers, and Bears, oh my.

MINISERIES PREMIERE: Today Amazon Prime Video presents the latest labor of Hercule – Hercule Poirot, the observant detective famous from a series of mystery novels written by genre grande dame Agatha Christie. David Suchet commandeered the role of Poirot by playing him, over a long stretch of years, in a PBS series covering every Poirot story in the canon. The last of those, though, was five years ago, and now it’s time for a new Poirot, played – and played very well – by

MINISERIES PREMIERE: Actress Natasha Lyonne and comedian Amy Poehler teamed with Sleeping with Other People writer Leslye Headland to create this new limited series, a sort of slightly darker spin on Groundhog Day. Lyonne, familiar as Nicky in Orange Is the New Black (and, long before that, as Opal in Pee-Wee’s Playhouse), plays Nadia, a young New York single woman – who could have been a girl from Girls – who wakes to the sound of Nilsson’s “Gotta Get Up” and

In last week’s episode of Gotham, Selina had come back from the almost dead to exact revenge on Jeremiah, stabbing him several times in the chest in what certainly looked like a series of mortal wounds. Promos for tonight’s new episode show a funeral, with Jeremiah in a casket – which is puzzling, because Jeremiah was presumed to be the character who evolved, or devolved, into the Joker. And who best can solve this puzzle? My vote would go to Ed Nygma, who’s fast turning

SERIES RETURN: Will & Grace is back from its winter break, which is good news for the show’s fans – but bad news for fans of The Good Place, because its time slot is the one Will & Grace will be occupying. But The Good Place has been renewed for next season already, so I guess it’s all good news after all.

SEASON PREMIERE: This Showtime instant-documentary political analysis series returns just in time, covering the week in which President Trump, on Friday, signed a bill to reopen the government for three weeks, even though it contained no provisions for funding his infamous wall, which is why he called for the government shutdown in the first place. Maybe he just got tired of winning…

SERIES FINALE: The last batch of episodes for the final season of The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt shows up today, wrapping up the series on an optimistic note – and on lots of notes, period, as music takes a playfully prominent role in many of these final stories. Watch them in order, but pay attention, in particular, to the “Sliding Van Doors” episode, in which Kimmy’s reality follows an alternate, and very, very different time line, allowing all the regular players (Carol
