John Turturro stars in this new Sundance miniseries version of bestselling Umberto Eco novel – and is one of its teleplay adapters as well. So if you’re not caught up in this fresh adaptation (which premiered last Thursday), you have him to blame. Twice.

SERIES PREMIERE: Back in the 1970s, Steve Allen hosted an intriguing PBS series called Meeting of Minds, in which he hosted a dinner party populated by performers impersonating historical figures. (The opener featured Theodore Roosevelt, Cleopatra, Thomas Paine and St. Thomas Aquinas breaking bread together.) Today on Netflix, deceased talk-show guests are featured once again – but this time in a roast format, hosted by Comedy Central roastmaster general Jeff Ross. Guests of honor, each &l

MINISERIES PREMIERE: This new three-part miniseries, based on the book by Richard Preston, stars Julianna Margulies as a dedicated scientist confronted with identifying and controlling the Ebola virus when an outbreak threatened to occur in the U.S. in 1989. (Spoiler Alert: It didn’t. But Ebola is back in the headlines, so set your paranoia on Stun.) The miniseries continues tomorrow and concludes Wednesday on National Geographic, so it’s fairly well-contained.

SEASON FINALE: Season 1 of Killing Eve ended with a stunning surprise, an intimate and unexpected stabbing. Tonight is the Season 2 finale – and while Villanelle (Jodie Comer) and Eve (Sandra Oh) have been working the same case, ostensibly for the same people, I wouldn’t be surprised by another tectonic shift in their relationship before this episode is over.

SEASON PREMIERE: Between Season 1 of this series, which premiered in 2016, and Season 2, which Amazon presents in a six-pack of superb TV today, a lot has happened. For one thing, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the writer and star of both this television series and the play on which it is based, has become an internationally acclaimed success, thanks to her more recent TV creation, BBC America’s brilliant Killing Eve. This one-two punch of flawless, adventurous TV writing may well be the most audac

MINISERIES PREMIERE: This new six-part adaptation of the classic Joseph Heller WWII novel, one of my favorite books as an impressionable teen reader, takes full advantage of the miniseries form to get deeper into the book – making it darker and more meaningful as it goes on, with the missions required to fly and the body count slowly but steadily rising. The young soldiers are mostly relatively fresh faces, including Christopher Abbott as Yossarian, but watch for certain officers who are p

MINISERIES CONCLUSION: I’ve adored this 10-part mini-miniseries (each episode is only 10 minutes long), and can’t wait for tonight’s conclusion. Last night’s installment, which had Tom (Chris O’Dowd) and Louise (Rosamund Pike) actually enjoying each other’s company after spending a particularly affable evening together, laid the groundwork for what just might be a hopeful ending. Or not. Either way, it’s been an unforgettably entertaining TV voyage. Kudo

SERIES PREMIERE: Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini star in this new Netflix series about women of very different temperaments who meet at a grief therapy session. What could be a predictable odd couple bonding comedy is anything but – and series creator Liz Feldman, showing off much more creativity and artistry than in her 2 Broke Girls CBS sitcom, keeps the surprises coming. The actresses are wonderful, the twists and turns excitingly unsettling. You’ll know by the end of the
