Last week, Nina (Annet Mahendru) passed the polygraph administered at the request of her FBI handler and lover Stan (Noah Emmerich) – which makes her the perfect triple agent for KGB operative Oleg (Costa Ronin) to use against him.

SERIES PREMIERE: When HBO’s True Detective ended, you may well have asked yourself, “Well, when is the next great TV series going to show up?” It didn’t take long – because here it is. It’s not a retelling of the 1996 Coen Brothers film, or a sequel, but it’s a spiritual sibling, and it’s equally enjoyable. For a full review, listen to my report today on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross, or visit the Fresh Air website. Martin Freeman, Billy B

Whatever’s going to happen on The Good Wife tonight, I’ll be there, watching live – partly because the show has been so good this year, and partly because I’m afraid of sports overruns, this time CBS’s coverage of the Masters golf tournament, wreaking havoc with the start time for The Good Wife.

Look, I don’t think I have to say anything about tonight’s episode, to get fans excited about tuning in, other than to say it features another royal wedding. And without revealing anything, let me just say that it gives Peter Dinklage, as Tyrion Lannister, some of his best scenes in the entire series to date.

SEASON PREMIERE: This Edie Falco showcase begins Season 6 with the charcter, and the series, continuing to relapse: Falco’s Jackie is back on drugs, and, as before, is juggling her work, home and love lives as best she can, but always dropping a ball somewhere. This time it’s with her rebellious teen daughter (forgive the redundancy), but Falco, as always, gives the character such depth that even when Jackie seems to attain what she wants most – scoring in a dance-hall bathroom

SEASON PREMIERE: Jon Hamm’s Don Draper and company – most of them, anyway – are back for the start of Season 7, the final lap for this excellent AMC series. Series creator Matthew Weiner has asked us to withhold many, many details, but what facts and opinions I can reveal can be found in my review for NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross.

Quite a show: Not only is former Real Time correspondent Matt Taibbi one of the guests, along with Rob Lowe, but so are Masha Alekkina, Nadya Tolokonnikova (pictured) and Petya Verzilov – much, much better known as the Russian activist group known as Pussy Riot.

It’s especially emotional tonight, as Ryan (Matt Lauria) returns to the show, and into the life of Amber (Mae Whitman) – but only in the aftermath of a devastating accident.

'Barney Miller': The Complete Series

The 1975-1982 sitcom Barney Miller was notable for its one-act feel since virtually all of the series was set in the same dreary New York City detectives’ squad room. Led by the wise and harried Captain Miller (Hal Linden), typical episodes would see offbeat detectives attending to local complainants or suspects stowed in the squad room’s lock-up. Included in the ensemble cast of workaday detectives was the cross-cultural mix of Abe Vigoda, Ron Glass, Jack Soo and Steve Landesberg. The ABC comedy was a frequent Emmy nominee and ran roughly during the same years as the network’s other hit sitcom, Taxi. The two shows thrived on the same humanistic notes of struggling characters finding humor and meaning in the thankless grind. 25 discs here with many extras, including a commemorative booklet, new cast interviews and the first season of Vigoda’s spin-off series, Fish. 60% off at Amazon for $66. –Eric Gould
