It might just be genre-adjacent, but one of the best shows on television returns this week, and it’s definitely worth mentioning. FX’s The Americans is back for its fifth season, and the 1980s-set, parallel history thriller is fantastic. So check it out.
The highlight of this week is certainly the launch of the FX series Legion, from acclaimed producer Noah Hawley (Fargo). It's riding a mountain of positive buzz and could be one of the most interesting genre shows of the year.
It’s the week of New Year’s, and for TV fans, that means we’ve hit the dead zone while we wait for the midseason premieres to start cranking up in a couple of weeks. But, that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to watch. You just have to dig deep.
We’ve officially hit the December doldrums, which means there’s not a whole lot of new stuff this week. But, with a lot of your favorites (probably) on hiatus, it’s the perfect time to check out a few shows you might’ve missed.
