Critical Condition: The Leftovers

The Leftovers (SoHo, 8.30 Monday) “The end of the world is nigh. At least that’s what people are saying — or hoping — in the final season of HBO’s The Leftovers. The Leftovers is a story about an ambiguous apocalypse. One Oct. 14, 2 percent of Earth’s population randomly vanishes in what is later dubbed the […]

Bates Motel Checks in at Last

The fifth and final season of Bates Motel will premiere on SoHo on April 26 — which will be roughly 24 hours after it ends in the US. It’s puzzling and disappointing that SoHo has delayed the last season for so long, which picks up two years after Norma’s death. Typically, it airs a show’s final season […]

Critical Condition: Feud: Bette and Joan

Feud: Bette and Joan (SoHo, 8.30 Tuesdays) “A fantastic miniseries has arrived that at last fully tells the painful history of being gay in modern America — and no, silly, it’s not ABC’s dourly dutiful When We Rise.

Critical Condition: Legion

Legion (SoHo, 8.30 Thursdays) “The first three episodes of this X-Men-styled mutant melodrama are superb, and the pilot in particular is an all-timer, but the whole thing is so aesthetically fresh that I could see myself continuing to watch it even if it suddenly became dumb as hell, just to see what new storytelling trick […]

Critical Condition: The Fall

The Fall (SoHo, 8.30 Tuesday) “The beloved BBC Two series returned with a well-welcomed chill tonight as worryingly attractive serial killer Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) continued his reign of terror. Despite losing more blood than he’s actually shed in all the episodes of the thriller put together, Spector was just as menacing when unconscious as he is dressed […]

Critical Condition: High Maintenance

High Maintenance (SoHo, 9.00 Thursday/encore 8.00 Wednesday) “Despite the consistent presence of weed, High Maintenance is not a stoner comedy. In fact — and this is a good thing — it’s a little hard to pin down exactly what the series is: Is it a comedic drama about the eccentric, pot-smoking personalities scattered throughout New York City?

HD Heads-Up: September 19

HBO showdown … Wrong vibe for Emmys? … Fall season faux season … HBO continues to reign supreme at the Emmy Awards — but only just after an unprecedented challenge by FX. It collected 22 of this year’s trophies, with more than half (12) being for Game of Thrones. FX had the next most number of wins (18), collecting half of those for The People […]
