Just in case you’re awake early and haven’t seen this series yet: Early this morning, the Smithsonian Channel is presenting all three parts of Sir David Attenborough’s newest documentary series, which covers everything from pterosaurs and dragonflies to bats and geese. Like everything Attenborough hosts on camera, it’s inspirational, educational, and sometimes that much overused description of awesome. The entire series is shown from 6-9 a.m. ET, and if you watch or recor

MINISERIES REPEAT: Today is the day on which the National Park Service celebrates its 100th anniversary – and to note that anniversary, PBS this week repeats this excellent, often breathtaking Ken Burns-Dayton Duncan six-part documentary series from 2009. Have a pad and pen nearby, to write down each place you’d like to visit after seeing it on this series – and by the end of the series, it’ll be quite a list. Check local listings.

SEASON PREMIERE: I stopped watching this series early on, but have been encouraged to give it another try, so I will. I don’t want to be accused of being a traitor to the concept of quality TV – which reminds me, Benedict Arnold is central to tonight’s season-opening plot. For a full review, see David Hinckley’s All Along the Watchtower.

We’re into the final episodes of The Good Wife, so it makes sense that Alicia (Julianna Margulies) wants to throw a party – except a party is the last thing on her mind, given that her mother-in-law (Mary Beth Piel, pictured) is getting remarried just as Alicia herself has demanded a divorce from her own husband, the increasingly disgraced Peter (Chris Noth).

SEASON PREMIERE: It’s the series return many, many people are waiting for, and HBO has pumped up the suspense by keeping the season premiere under wraps. But it is an HBO “free preview” weekend, so you can watch this and all other recommended HBO shows tonight free of charge. The charge will come afterward: As with many crack dealers, the first taste is free.

SEASON PREMIERE: When the writers of Veep planned out last season’s cliffhanger, and the possibility that the presidential race would result in a deadlocked and brokered political convention, it was supposed to be satirical fantasy. So much of the real 2016 race appears to be just that, I guess, so why not? For a full review, see Ed Bark's Uncle Barky's Bytes.

In Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Eliza Dushku played another vampire slayer, Faith, who had the swagger, the moves, and the charisma to be a badass version of Buffy. Starting tonight, Dushku begins a recurring role on Banshee, and the word is that her character on this series will be even tougher. Though that’s difficult to believe, so until we tune in tonight, I guess we’ll have to take it on Faith.

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
