MINISERIES FINALE: Tonight’s episode, the miniseries’ final installment, takes us, and Fox News and Roger Ailes, to 2018, and to the presidential campaign of Donald Trump. Russia, are you watching?

Last week, with almost no time to prep, John Oliver hosted a powerful show suggesting a link between political rhetoric and last weekend’s mass shootings. After a week of reactions to those deaths, and a day of reaction to the apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, how will John Oliver structure and focus this week’s show? I have no clue. But I’ll be watching…

SEASON PREMIERE: GLOW, an acronym for the once-actual 80s TV phenomenon known as the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, has come to its current season with several old conflicts resolved, and many compelling new ones introduced. Marc Maron, as the group’s director, is finding an unexpected, and for him unusual, equilibrium, with his job as well as his recently discovered daughter. The performers in the ring are bonding in various ways out of it – and this season introduces a new

SEASON FINALE: The season of Jett began with the title character, played by Carla Gugino, being forced by one bad guy to secretly work for her while continuing to pretend she was still loyal to another bad guy. In tonight’s season finale, Jett finally learns why her new mob handler, Miljan Bestic (Greg Bryk), is so feverishly resentful of her former one, Charlie (Giancarlo Esposito). And because it’s not a case of meet the new boss, same as the old boss, Jett has made some

SEASON FINALE: When I was in high school, I wrote term papers for money – not much money, and I was learning by researching and writing, so I have little residual guilt from my formative writing experiences. Anyway, the way I taught my children my old tricks, back in the days when libraries and books remained plentiful, was to use an assignment in Modern European History as an example. Go to the stacks in the library where that general topic is housed, pull out a book, and go straight to t

SEASON PREMIERE: By this time, this AMC series is preaching mainly to the converted. But if you’ve recently watched Amazon’s The Boys, and wanted to see another TV series based on a comic book from the same creator, that’s an additional reason to tune in for what is the Season 4 premiere of this potentially apocalyptic battle between good and evil. Sometimes it’s easy to tell who’s on which side. Other times, not so much.

Jack Bannon plays young Alfred Pennyworth, before he became the butler to young Bruce Wayne, in this prequel to both Gotham and Batman. But there are villains here also, and the plum role in these opening episodes goes to Paloma Faith as Bet Sykes. British pop singer Faith, in real life, is a lot more glamorous and flashy than her character is bring portrayed thus far – but it’s reasonable to presume that her character’s appearance, as well as her aggressive

SEASON FINALE: This is the episode that ended Season 1 of this spinoff of The Good Wife, back when it was on CBS All Access. Now the regular CBS audience gets to see it – most of it, anyway. Except for scenes cut for length, or edited for language, and so on.

SEASON FINALE: This year’s adventures on S.H.I.E.L.D. have been all over the place – and all over space and time as well. For this season finale, the world once again hangs in the balance, but this time the world in question is Earth – and the villain is a body-borrowing intergalactic villainess named Izel, played by Karolina Wydra (pictured), who plans to absorb and destroy the planet’s energy as part of an even greater and more menacing plan. But whatever happ
