After the queen’s death, her children Balem (Eddie Redmayne), Titus (Douglas Booth), […]



dvr this HBO, Sundays, 10:30 p.m. It’s distressing that the insane political antics in Veep only seem slightly exaggerated in comparison to the horror that is the 2016 presidential campaign. But the jokes in Veep are much better. Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays Selena Meyer, who became president after being vice president for the first several seasons […]

Game of Thrones

Emilia Clarke in Game of Thrones

dvr this HBO, Sunday, 9pm Last year’s season finale of the sword and sorcery epic series Game of Thrones ended with the seeming death of one of the show’s three main characters. People drop dead left and right on that show, but fans all assumed that at least noble warrior Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), Machiavellian-with-a-heart […]

The Family


dvr this ABC, Sundays, 9 p.m. In some ways, Joan Allen is playing a very similar character in The Family to the one she played in last fall’s Room. Both had teenage children kidnapped by sexual predators who returned years later. But her character in Room is doting, kind and selfless. In the new TV […]

The Americans

dvr this FX, Wednesdays, 10 p.m. One of the best acted, written and directed shows on TV, The Americans is still under-watched. You should rectify this in its fourth season. Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys star as Elizabeth and Philip Jennings, who appear to be mild-mannered travel agents in early 1980s Washington, D.C. but who […]

You, Me and the Apocalypse


dvr this NBC, Thursday, 8 p.m. A co-production of NBC and Britain’s Sky TV, You, Me and the Apocalypse mines comedy from the last four weeks before a comet strikes the Earth and kills all life. That it works is rather impressive, and it’s all in Iain Hollands’s writing. The plotting is full of insane […]



dvr this HBO, Sundays, 9 p.m. HBO’s latest newest prestige drama was created by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese and it focuses on the 1970s music business in New York. With that pedigree, it shouldn’t be surprising that the show is full of drugs, sex, violence, raw rock and roll and sublime R&B. Bobby Cannavale […]

dvr this FX, Tuesdays, 10 p.m. Ryan Murphy’s second anthology series, after American Horry Story, is focused on one major crime story a year, and he has started with OJ Simpson being accused and tried for the murder of his ex-wife and her friend.

The Magicians


Syfy, Monday, Jan. 25, 9 p.m. Lev Grossman’s series of novels that begins with The Magicians is not terribly original; he clearly combined Harry Potter with The Chronicles of Narnia. At an invisible school in Upstate New York, college students study magic and a few of them discover that the beloved novels about the mythical […]

The Expanse


Syfy, Monday, Dec. 14, 10 p.m. Possibly the best show since Syfy’s beloved Battlestar Galactica,The Expanse is another space opera, this time about the conflicts caused by humanity’s colonization of the solar system 200 years into the future. Earth is run by a ruthless United Nations, Mars is an independent military power, and the asteroid […]
