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 […]


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 […]

Getting On

dvr this HBO, Sunday, Nov. 23, 10:30 p.m. For some reason, Getting On, the genius half-hour comedy about an enormously dysfunctional geriatric unit of a Long Beach hospital, is barely on anyone’s radar. Put it on yours. Nurse Dawn (Alex Borstein) is meek, desperately lonely, and competent; Nurse Didi (Reno 911’s Niecy Nash) is loud-mouthed […]

Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B

dvr this Lifetime, Saturday, Nov. 15, 8 p.m. I always hope that Lifetime’s celebrity biopics will be good or so bad they’re good, but they usually fall between the two. This week’s entry is two hours about the short life of ‘90s R&B star Aaliyah, who sold a few million records before dying in a […]

Saturday Night Live

dvr this NBC, Saturday, Nov. 1, 11:30 a.m. – 1 a.m. Chris Rock hosts and Prince is the musical guest. Rock can be a comic genius, and his presence will hopefully inspire the erratic SNL writers to give us one of those now rare great shows. Prince is on a roll, putting out two critically […]

American Horror Story: Freak Show

Jessica Lange in American Horror Story

dvr this FX, Wednesdays, 10 p.m. Ryan Murphy’s ridiculous anthology series is back, this time with his stars working at a side show in 1950s rural Florida. There are little people, a guy with lobster hands, a chanteuse and Siamese twins. There’s also a murderous clown. It’s violent, disgusting, campy and occasionally sublime. Jessica Lange […]
