MOVIE PREMIERE: This 2018 movie is a sedate, quiet sci-fi film with a powerful wave of emotion behind it. On its surface, it covers the same ground as AMC’s HUMANS or HBO’s Westworld: the evolution of artificial intelligence and human synthetics so convincing they can pass for the real thing. In Zoe, Ewan McGregor plays Cole, the head of a scientific division developing such creations, with the goal being to offer life partners – computer-designed and programmed soul mates of s

SEASON PREMIERE: There have to be some major changes in store for Suits this year, because after last season, one of this show’s regulars, acting like a real princess, walked off the show. No, wait – technically, she walked off the show to become a real princess. And when Meghan Markle married Prince Harry this summer, the audience for that TV show was even bigger than last spring’s season finale of Suits. So what happens this year, and who are the new faces? Well, one of them

This new biographical documentary about Robin Williams includes some rough-language ad libs, showing comedian Robin Williams at his most unstructured and unfettered, that make this a perfect presentation for uncensored HBO. But for me, the biggest treasures are Williams himself (in old interviews) and such comic peers as Steve Martin and Billy Crystal (in new ones), dropping the laugh track to speak seriously – very seriously – about comedy, and specifically about Williams. For my fu

Last week’s boardroom showdown turned out to be a bloodbath, and many members of Logan’s immediate family were among the victims. But Logan (Brian Cox), for now, remains not only standing… but powerful. And, needless to say, vengeful.

SEASON PREMIERE: The first two episodes of Season 2 of Harlots are available now, offering a new series regular who joins Samantha Morton and company. It’s Liv Tyler (pictured), who plays a wealthy socialite who’s drawn into the world of the 18th-century London brothel trade. As Season 2 begins, it’s still a pitched battle between rival madams Margaret Wells (Morton) and her ruthless upscale counterpart, Lydia Quigley (Leslie Manville) – but almost instantly, Lydia is car

SERIES PREMIERE: Comedian Goldthwait’s name is in the title not because he’s on screen in this new anthology series (he’s not), but because he’s the creator, and has generated this string of stand-alone stories that mix suspense and fantasy tales with something comically twisted. So the werewolf, for example, isn’t running from an angry mob: it’s running for high political office. And in tonight’s opener, “Bubba the Bear,” an actor (played by

SERIES PREMIERE: This new summer CW fantasy series – imagine Game of Thrones without money to spend – stars relative newcomer Jessica Green, playing a warrior with nascent supernatural powers who is the only survivor of a brutal attack on her family and townspeople. At least it’s not a rerun, or a reality show, so I mention it here. Once.

SEASON PREMIERE: The first season of Anne with an E, a new extended examination of the Anne of Green Gables series of novels, was a delight – in no small part because of the effervescent yet touching quality of its young leading lady, Amybeth McNulty. Amybeth is back for Season 2 – picking up exactly where last season left off.

SEASON PREMIERE: A whole new batch of episodes are dropped today by Netflix – but rush right to the final one in this new series, because it’s a tiny little treasure. Host Jerry Seinfeld goes to Las Vegas and visits, drives around and eats breakfast with Jerry Lewis, in that other iconic comedian’s final screen appearance before he died. Lewis is frail, and less than verbose, but it’s sweet as well as somewhat funny to watch Seinfeld try, try and keep trying to pull stori

SEASON PREMIERE: There are two TV shows right now that make me feel really good, and a little calmer and happier, after watching them, and they’re both on TV tonight. One is The Great British Baking Show on PBS, and the other is this travel and food show, hosted by Everybody Loves Raymond creator Phil Rosenthal. The opener to this new season of visits to wonderful places and restaurants is “Italy” (pictured), where Rosenthal spends the first half in Venice, and most of the seco
