Get Happy!

Happy! brings the weirdness to Syfy; Fuller House further erodes 'Merica.
The Only TV Column That Matters™ only needed to hear "from the creators of Crank" to be all-in for Happy! (series debut Wednesday, Dec. 6, Syfy).

Rated Xmas

Screw Thanksgiving—bring on the Christmas TV!
Wasn't Turkey Day grand?

Skull Candy

The Punisher brings the brutality; Marvel's Runaways delivers the teen angst.
After cutting down on episodic bloat with the eight-installment Defenders, Netflix is back in the overload business with The Punisher (series debut Friday, Nov. 17, Netflix), the latest 13-episode Marvel delivery from Hell's Kitchen.


Maria Bamford drops more 'Lady Dynamite' and 'Ill Behaviour' puts the can-do in cancer.
Still sounds good, still feels right.

Rebootie Call

S.W.A.T. is more of the same ol' CBS; Shameless and SMILF spice Sundays.
Need more proof that broadcast television is out of ideas?

Downside Up

Stranger Things and Blindspot return; try Black Sabbath and RiffTrax for Halloween.
Look, I liked the first go-round of Stranger Things just fine, like Panda Express takeout: filling, not quite dog food, coulda been worse.
