Well, last week Alicia (Julianna Margulies) and Peter (Chris Noth) survived the family party and the clash of their respective mothers, and the unexpected unveiling of the secret that Alicia had demanded a divorce. And now Peter heads to court – not to get divorced, but, in the show’s penultimate episode, to defend himself, once again, against charges of ethics violations and criminal wrongdoing.

Watch the women. That’s all I’m saying this season, because last week’s season premiere seemed to be all about the women playing this Game, and beginning to restore their own powers, alliances and forces. When this chess board eventually stages another war, there could be nothing left but queens.

The boys are back at their old company, which isn’t their old company any more, because the board installed a new CEO (Stephen Tobolowsky) – who may actually know what he’s doing. But at what price?

SEASON PREMIERE: This show is one of the more underrated shows on TV, especially in the horror genre. The new season begins with our heroic group of monster fighters spread far and wide, and under attack not only on various continents, but within themselves. Eva Green stars – and Patti LuPone returns, this season as a regular.

Selina (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) finds herself in a statistical tie in the electoral college, and the only way to claim the presidency may be to demand a recount in one hotly contested, very close state. It’s a good plan – but only if she wins. For a full review, see Ed Bark’s Uncle Barky’s Bytes.

Tonight’s documentary installment is about the early 1980s development, and subsequent impact, of MTV. The title alone suggests you’ll be able to see, and hear, at least a portion of the first video ever played on MTV when it launched in 1981: “Video Killed the Radio Star,” by a British band called The Buggles.

Last week, we found out something horrifying about another of the infamous biological experiments being carried out on unwilling patients, including at least one of our favorite clones. And tonight’s episode sees the return of another of those clones: Tatiana Maslany (of course) as Rachel.

HUMANS: Season One

There’s no precise date for the Season 2 return of AMC’s sci-fi import HUMANS yet, but we eagerly await. One of the legitimate worth-watching hits of 2015, HUMANS is science fiction in premise only. While it envisions the day-to-day dilemmas of humanoid servants among us, the series is in every other way an engaging drama of freedom and morality. Some of the “Synthetics,” as the robots are called, may have been secretly programmed to gain actual human consciousness. HUMANS squarely confronts the idea of drones spawned as neo-slave labor, and as their masters, our arrogance, guilt — and new idleness. On sale at Amazon. —Eric Gould
