Westworld

212_5828_8880.jpg

dvr this HBO, Sundays, 10 p.m. HBO’s latest expensive, sexy, violent, high-brow drama is based on Michael Crichton’s pulpy 1973 sci-fi western about a Wild West theme park inhabited by malfunctioning androids.

dvr this On Netflix The third of Marvel’s Netflix series stars Mike Colton as the bullet proof, super-strong reluctant hero of Harlem.

The Little Prince

207_5742_8699.jpg

dvr this On Netflix A week before the new animated version of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s novella The Little Prince was about to be released in theaters, Paramount bizarrely decided against distributing it. Netflix scooped it up and it’s now streaming. This new film is only vaguely related to the book; that the aviator is in […]

The Get Down

205_5718_8655.jpg

On Netflix Baz Luhrmann’s long-gestating period musical series about a rag tag group of kids in the Bronx coming of age during the late 1970s birth of Hip-Hop showcases the best of Luhrmann and the problems of extending his aesthetic across the many hours of a TV series. The musical scenes, featuring ecstatic dancing and […]

The Night Of

205_5696_8616.jpg

dvr this HBO, Sundays, 9 p.m. HBO’s latest water-cooler hit is a miniseries about a Pakistani-American college student named Nasir (Riz Ahmed, in a career making performance) who wakes up after a one-night stand to find the woman he’s slept with brutally stabbed to death. He panics, runs and then he’s caught and charged with […]

Animal Kingdom

203_5659_8556.jpg

dvr this TNT, Tuesdays, 8 p.m. Animal Kingdom is loosely based on the Oscar-nominated 2010 Australian film of the same name; it keeps the basic premise, a family of career criminals headed by a steely mom, and ramps up the sex and sociopathology. Instead of Jacki Weaver as the mother nicknamed Smurf, we have professional […]

UnREAL

202_5632_8514.jpg

dvr this Lifetime, Mondays at 10 p.m. UnREAL is a deeply cynical, sometimes funny, and very entertaining drama about the making of a show just like The Bachelor. Shiri Appleby plays Rachel Goldberg, a feminist who has found herself producing a paean to misogyny, which contributes to the disappearance of her ethics and a nervous […]

Preacher

200_5609_8477.jpg

dvr this AMC, Sundays, 9 p.m. Based on a cult graphic novel, Preacher is the story of a dejected minister in small town Texas who is given mysterious supernatural abilities for unclear reasons. It’s a mix of horror, fantasy and superheroics, and it’s wildly fun and very weird. Produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, […]

Jupiter Ascending

Veep

199_5566_8410.jpg

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 […]
