SEASON PREMIERE: Last season, this series based on an independent movie ended with Sam (Logan Browning) leading a student protest at her predominantly white college. Season 2 picks up in the aftermath of that protest, which has many of the characters, and student groups, divided among some sensitive lines – racial and otherwise.

What a show – and on this week’s new episode, what a guest list. It includes Benedict Cumberbatch, about to star in Patrick Melrose on Showtime; Matt LeBlanc, who recently wrapped up his wildly entertaining (and self-deprecating) Episodes series, also on Showtime; and Mary Berry, famous in England (and here in the States) for what there was called The Great British Baking Show. Sounds like a recipe for a great hour of conversation…

There are big doings for both the old and young Picassos in tonight’s Chapter 3 of the Genius: Picasso series. The elder Picasso (Antonio Banderas) meets his later-in-life muse Francoise Gilot (Clemence Posey) – and the younger Picasso (Alex Rich), in an earlier timeline, embarks upon his Blue Period.

In Dallas, TX, there’s an investigative firm of private eyes fronted by three men who, between them, have 60 years of experience – not as detectives, but as former Texas prison inmates, wrongly imprisoned for decades for crimes they did not commit. Their Texas detective agency was established to give them a just cause, a specialty operation in which they investigate the convictions of other unfairly incarcerated prisoners. Check local listings.

This is being touted as a landmark episode of The Simpsons, and with very good reason. It’s episode number 636 since this animated Fox series began as a full-length prime-time show in 1989, expanding from interstitial slots on The Tracey Ullman Show to launch with a Christmas special, “Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire.” And that means The Simpsons, with tonight’s episode, finally passes CBS’s landmark Western Gunsmoke as the scripted TV series with the most episode

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

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

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
