Winter is coming – and, for some characters in tonight’s episode, so is “The Gift” – which is Throne-ish for death, because life is so awful, death is received with gratitude.

Dr. Prince (Tony Shalhoub) conducts an intervention of sorts, trying to broker peace between Jackie (Edie Falco) and Gloria (Anna Deavere Smith). And that’s not the only way he has a lasting impact on what happens to the hospital staff as we near the end of this final season.

There’s some crucial information required by the clone club, and Felix thinks he knows how to get it – by visiting the icy, lethal, and now isolated and one-eyed Rachel.

SERIES PREMIERE: Former Nickelodeon star Jennette McCurdy, from iCarly and Sam & Cat, stars in this new Canadian series, imported by Netflix on a weekly basis, as a pregnant teen who lives in Pretty Lake. It’s an isolated town that becomes even more isolated after a mysterious virus wipes out everyone over 21. The quarantined town has to fend for itself and work as its own new society, as in Lord of the Flies or, in a movie that had anyone over 30 rounded up and forcibly ingested LSD,

On this week’s show, Amy plays a contestant in a child beauty pageant in a takeoff of Toddlers & Tiaras (which, arguably, already is a spoof of itself, since it’s so horrid in every way). Schumer’s version is “Babies & Bustiers,” and she plays a contestant with abnormal growth spurts, named Amy Merryweather Sherman (the contestant, not the spurts). And her stage mom, because there has to be one? She’s played by Jennifer Coolidge… so watch out. A

Weeds: The Complete Collection (Blu-ray + UltraViolet)

Showtime's Weeds (2005-2012) took a different spin on the 21st century TV antihero with a widowed soccer
mom who turned pot dealer to make ends meet. Mary-Louise Parker starred as Nancy Botwin, who found the drug trade darker, and with more consequences, than the easy little side business she envisioned. The black comedy probably went on for a few too many seasons, but the tale of the suburban outlaw was always smart and outlandish. (With all previous bonus material and special Day-Glo green acrylic case). On sale at Amazon at 60% off.Eric Gould
