SEASON PREMIERE: The narrative structure of this series, aimed at young teens but with potential appeal to a wider audience, caught well-deserved attention when it premiered last year. It’s about a young, modern, aimless Bonnie and Clyde of sorts, played by Jessica Barden as Alyssa and Alex Lawther as James, who end up on the run and starting a murder spree. One wrinkle: he planned to kill her as well, until he fell in love with her along the way. Season 1 probed their relationship, and th

SERIES REPEAT: Friends, Romans, countrypeople, lend me your ears: One of TV’s most hidden gems, and most sparkling, is this Canadian comedy-drama series about a struggling Shakespearean acting troupe. And beginning today, the Acorn TV streaming service is repeating it in its entirety. Season 1, which launched in 2003, is showcased tonight, with the episodes of Season 2 following on November 25, and Season 3 after that in mid-December.Slings & Arrows stars Paul Gross, star of anoth

SERIES FINALE: Last week, a sudden turn of events threatened to claim the life of Maura Tierney’s Helen. It was a snakebite, suffered while hiking on a mountain trail – but she was with Noah (Dominic West), who got her to the hospital on time. In other words, the former snake Noah, who propelled this entire series with his illicit affair with Ruth Wilson’s alluring waitress Alison, is back at the bedside of the wife he betrayed. It’s just in time for tonight’s serie

SPECIAL PREVIEW: In 2020, BBC America will present Sir David Attenborough’s new nature series, Seven Worlds, One Planet, with even more of the astounding visuals and soothing narrative voices we’ve come to expect. But tonight, the network provides a special sneak preview… easily the night’s very best bet.

SERIES PREMIERE: The entire Apple TV+ streaming service launches today. All the programming is brand new, but much of it, at the outset, is decidedly average. Of the initial offerings, the best is this new series from Battlestar Galactica reimaginer Ronald D. Moore. Once again, he’s reimagining things. This time, in a drama starring Joel Kinnaman as a 1960s U.S. astronaut, For All Mankind presents an alternate world history in which the Soviets won the space race by lan

Perhaps this is the week, after weeks of teasing, when we finally learn the cause, or at least the full effect, of the explosion of an unknown satellite above the land where our heroes, and the villains, currently are nestled. That’s what a zombie show needs to enliven itself… some UFOs.

SEASON PREMIERE: Mike Judge’s razor-sharp, forward-thinking satire of Silicon Valley returns for a new season. And the way Judge has made fun of things before they happen in real  life, he’s turned this series into a kind of small-scale, small-screen version of Paddy Chayefsky’s Network.

SEASON PREMIERE: This is the sixth and final season of this improbably entertaining animated series, about the everyday misadventures and problems of a former talking-horse TV star. Will Arnett provides the voice of this equine has-been, and believe it or not, it’s one of Arnett’s best roles. This final go-round is divided into two half-season chunks (the first eight episodes arriving today, and the final eight dropping next January). Bojack – the horse, not the series –

Le Bron James has turned his casual HBO talk show into one of TV’s best, and most frank, places for conversation, about race and role models as well as sports and athleticism. Tonight, a new installment – and among the guests stopping by The Shop is a familiar face from another HBO series: Bill Hader of Barry.

Last week, Mr. Robot returned to television almost as a stealth mission – barely noticed or promoted. Yet written and directed by Sam Esmail, it was another strong outing, and a welcome return for the series which won Rami Malek an Emmy before his big-screen portrayal of Freddie Mercury won him an Oscar. In last week’s premiere, it took 20 minutes before Malek showed up… but so much happened to other characters, it was worth the wait.
