We’ve sorted through our DVR to bring you the five best episode of television that you may have missed this week. The Simpson Trial returns to TV, The Muppets are back with a new showrunner, Black Sails weathers a storm, and more!
Shades Of Blue explores the cause and effect of crime and punishment in Equal and Opposite, Newton’s third law of motion. In TV drama, a cause must have a powerfully unequal response. Dramatic laws are much closer to life; completely unfair.
Well this series is definitely blurring the lines of who to root for. Obviously the “Visitors” aka alien invaders are the big baddies, but they have yet to be revealed on the show. So we’re left watching our fellow humans running around, scrambling to get the upperhand.
The NAACP Image Awards celebrate the accomplishments of people of color in film, TV, music, and literature. Leading the nominees are Ryan Coogler’s Creed with six nods and Fox’s Empire, which landed 12 nominations.

It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia has never been nominated for an Emmy, nor have any of its cast. But after last night’s episode, they must consider Glenn Howerton for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy for his role as Dennis.
Here’s a problem with the otherwise delightful American Crime series: how do you go about establishing motif over the course of hours upon hours of television, without it coming of as gimmick?
Two Soviet intelligence agents pose as a married couple to spy on the American government.
When I first heard of FX’s latest, American Crime Story, and that it was to be focusing on the infamous O.J. Simpson trial, I was skeptical. I’m pretty excited to report that they pretty much nailed it.
The Muppets are back from their winter hiatus or as they best referred to it, a much needed vacation. Feeling refreshed and repurposed the team is anxious to get the first show back underway.
It’s great to have the Huang’s back. There’s plenty of fantastic dark drama on the schedule but you have to dig the family that solves their problems with creative effort and loving cooperation.
It’s official! In an episode of Supergirl set to air March 28 on CBS, the speedster heads to National City to join forces with the “Girl of Steel.”
On Tuesday, the Visual Effects Society announced the winners of the 14th annual VES Awards. This year’s winners had a heavy hand in creating some of the biggest commercial successes of the year–including blockbuster titles like Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Revenant.
Agent Carter goes for backstory in “Smoke & Mirrors” to give context to all that espionage. It’s a solid episode with the usual balance between action and intrigue with the added bonus of a little patriarchy smashing.
It had to come at some point. As the saying goes, “All good streaks must come to an end.” OK, that might not technically be the way the saying goes, but the sentiment stands: The Grinder had a mediocre-to-bad episode.
We gave 8 comedians each their own episode of a series. No rules. No limits. No one else would do this. Seriously.
Paula’s back…and I like it! She was adulting too much, responsibility and sensibility doesn’t really suit her. Instigating and pushing psychotic ideas into Rebecca’s head is more like it.
Last week’s episode of Supergirl served up a strong episode but left a lot of strings hanging. Last night in “Bizarro,” this same pattern holds true. These episodes are so fun but it’s only a matter of time before the love triangles, mentors, and secret identities come to a head at the end of the season and who knows how that will fair.
Superstore continues to shape the characters, their relationships with each other, and our connection to them, but this episode isn’t exactly the strongest of their freshman season — but that doesn’t mean it isn’t enjoyable.
Lucifer returns to the streets of Los Angeles, populated by deceptive people in Lucifer Stay, Good Devil. Fox’s Prince of darkness is driven by mystery and desire; otherwise, he’s a demon of his word. A great element of the show’s fun is watching him explore and audit the naughty realm of human desire.
Well, so far two-thirds of The X-Files reboot is phenomenal. Two out of three episodes have been self-aware without being self-conscious. “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster” is the perfect blend of in-jokes, existentialism, and monsters.
Based on the IDW comic, Wyatt Earp’s great granddaughter Wynonna battles demons and other creatures, relying on her unique abilities and a posse of dysfunctional allies.
Amazon has signed a multi-year and multimillion dollar deal with Mattel’s American Girl to adapt specials from the popular dolls and books for Amazon Prime. They also have the option to produce full-fledged series of the stories as well.
