The Flash

dvr this The CW, Tuesdays, 9 p.m. After the success of Arrow, the CW and DC Comics created a spin-off focused on the red-suited speedster superhero called the Flash, whose real name is Barry Allen. Played by the appealing and sweet Grant Gustin, this version of the Flash is a forensic investigator who is struck [...]

Broad City

dvr this Comedy Central, Wednesdays, 10:30 p.m. Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson play Ilana and Abbi on the absurdly, filthily funny Broad City, a series about two young women in New York trying to have fun, have sex, get high, fall in love and be as cool as young Brooklynites are supposed to be. The [...]

Glee

dvr this FOX, Fridays, 9 p.m. I never gave up on Glee, though I understand why so many people did after the second season, when things started getting so absurd, inconsistent and repetitive that it was hard even to call it camp. Last season was disastrously bad, with half of the action taking place in [...]

Better Call Saul

dvr this AMC, Sunday, Feb. 8, 10 p.m. Before Breaking Bad finished its much (and perhaps overly) praised run, AMC announced that they would be a producing a prequel series about meth dealer Walter White’s lawyer Saul Goodman. Saul is one of the few characters from Breaking Bad who was always funny, though there was [...]

Looking

dvr this HBO, Sundays, 10 p.m. The second season of HBO’s divisive series about a group of gay men in San Francisco has arrived. The first season began with screeching fights on social media about the show and its narcissistic, somewhat unbelievable characters, but as the episodes piled up, those of us who kept watching [...]

Empire

dvr this Fox, Wednesdays, 9 p.m. Lee Daniels has called his hip-hop soap opera “the black Dynasty” and that’s all I needed to want to record it, but having Terrence Howard as a music mogul, Taraji P. Henson as his criminal wife and Courtney Love wandering around being insane has made me desperate to watch. [...]

Black Mirror

dvr this DirecTV, Christmas, 9:30-11 p.m. Also on Netflix Instant This British import is a contemporary Twilight Zone, mostly focused on the dark, dark possibilities of over-reliance on technology. Each episode is creepy and perfectly plotted and a little unnerving and stars someone pretty great. The first has Rory Kinnear as the British prime minister [...]

The Affair

dvr this Showtime, Sunday, Dec. 21, 10 p.m. The season finale of the much-buzzed about Showtime soap opera will probably not answer the key question of the show: Will Noah (Dominic West) and Alison (Ruth Wilson) end up together, dump their spouses (Maura Tierney and Joshua Jackson, respectively), and live unhappily ever after? If it’s [...]

Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer

dvr this Toon Disney, Saturday, Dec. 13, 5 p.m. Of all of the very strange novelty songs and of all the weird Christmas tunes, Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer is possibly the pinnacle. As song by Elmo and Patsy, it’s a crass, tasteless, and very funny yarn about what happens when Santa Claus [...]

Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever

dvr this Lifetime, Saturday, Nov. 29, 8 p.m. The “Internet sensation” known as Grumpy Cat – named so because it’s a cat that always looks grumpy – has been monetized into a Lifetime Christmas movie. This sounds awful and absurd, but it’s also potentially rather funny, since the cat is voiced by the hilariously deadpan [...]
