So, granted, the upcoming biopic of Dylan Thomas won’t be a family night of TV, with all manner of self-sabotage...  it’s hard to think of a reason to watch Thomas’s last destructive days – except for his incomparable poems...

Last week, the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) couldn’t exit the TARDIS, because of a shift in space-time dimensional relative reality. (You had to be there.) Tonight, he can exit his time-and-spaceship – and when he does, he returns to a familiar place, Trafalgar Square in London. But it’s in a very unfamiliar condition. As in, terribly overgrown with foliage.

Okay, this is ridiculous. I know I keep talking about how this show lands such good guests, and does such good things once it lands them. But check out tonight’s lineup: Not only Robert Duvall and Robert Downey, Jr., who are on a movie publicity tour, but Stephen Fry – and U2. With a lineup like that, and a host like Norton, I’ll be there. And U2 should be watching….

Bill Maher doesn’t need any help generating quotes that turn out to be incendiary and, on social media, long-lasting. But tonight, his roster includes two guests who are specialists of the form: Mary Matalin and Cornel West.

Many of this show’s characters have been put through the wringer of late. In tonight’s episode, however, promos suggest that Amber, played by Mae Whitman, may actually get a chance to be… happy.

SEASON PREMIERE: Lisa Kudrow and her Skype-happy therapist character, Fiona Wallace, are back for another season, with more celebrity clients than ever – and with, once again, some old Friends.

Will and Marcus continue to have some sort of a bond – so much so that each of them, in tonight’s episode, tries to find a replacement “friend” for the other before, as scheduled, the former neighbors go their separate ways.

Tonight’s episode brings to a head one of many killer confrontations roiling to a boil in this final season – and also finds room to use a recording of “Greensleeves” by series star Katey Sagal. It’s also the title of tonight’s episode, so expect the song to play at the end, over a montage of the latest wave of violence and the regret and pain of those left in its wake. One thing seems apparent: On every episode from now until the series finale, there will be

So far, so good. How long can Gotham keep up its pace and mood, much less its tension, while staying far away from any of the costumed villains, and heroes, we know from the iconic DC Comics? At this rate, for quite a while. Even Oswald Cobblepot, the future Penguin, is taking his time choosing sides and career paths – and writing his personal enemies’ list. But tonight, he does a bit more of all of that.

After last week’s well-received premiere, Gina Rodriguez and the rest of this show’s stars have reason to celebrate. And tonight they do – but in character, as Jane (Rodriguez) decides to go ahead with her very, very unplanned pregnancy.
