Top TV picks for next week

Top TV picks for next week

January 10th, 2019 by East Bay Times in Features

DON'T MISS: "True Detective"—Fresh off winning a Golden Globe for his performance in "Green Book," Mahershala Ali headlines the third installment of the gritty anthology series. Ali plays retired Arkansas state police detective Wayne Hays, who seeks to solve a macabre crime that took place years ago in the heart of the Ozarks. Filmed in Arkansas, the story plays out in three separate time periods. Stephen Dorff and Carmen Ejogo also star. (8 p.m. Sunday, HBO).

Other bets:

SUNDAY: Remember Netscape? "Valley of the Boom" is a wildly offbeat, six-part miniseries that captures the high-stakes drama and madcap craziness of the 1990s dot-com bubble (and bust). Bradley Whitford, Steve Zahn and Lamorne Morris lead the cast. (8 p.m., National Geographic).

SUNDAY: Jenna Coleman returns as the title character in Season 3 of "Victoria." As the saga resumes, the queen is pregnant with her sixth child. But she has much else on her mind, mainly the Revolutions of 1848, when Europe's downtrodden begin calling for the overthrow of aristocratic rule. (8 p.m., PBS).


MONDAY: "The Passage" is a new drama series about a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous virus that could lead to the cure for all disease. But hold on, because it might also wipe out the human race. (8 p.m., Fox).


TUESDAY: TV's reboot craze continues with "Roswell, New Mexico." It recalls the 1999-2002 cult series about human-alien romance. But now Liz (Jeanine Mason) and Max (Nathan Parsons) are adults and it might not be nearly as fun. (8 p.m., The CW).

TUESDAY: Speaking of reboots, do we really need another "Temptation Island"? The reality series follows four dating couples to Maui, where 24 eligible men and women engage them in the "single life." Will the couples stick together, or go their separate ways? (9 p.m., USA).


WEDNESDAY: Set in the late 1980s, the new series "Deadly Class" follows a homeless teen (Benjamin Wadsworth) who is recruited into Kings Dominion. Uh oh. It's a brutal private academy where the world's top crime families send their next generation of assassins to be trained. (9 p.m., Syfy).


THURSDAY: It's time to take to space again. Season 2 of "Star Trek: Discovery" finds our crew joining forces with Capt. Christopher Pike on a new mission to investigate seven mysterious red signals and the appearance of an unknown being called the Red Angel (7:30 p.m., CBS All Access).

THURSDAY: Meet the manscapers of "Backyard Envy." They're three best friends and business partners who design lush backyards and amazing outdoor spaces in this new home-improvement series. (9 p.m., Bravo).


FRIDAY: The dynamic duo of Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are back for Season 5 of "Grace and Frankie." Their story picks up with the divorcees in search of a new home after ditching the retirement community. (Netflix).


SATURDAY: Prepare to be captivated. Sir David Attenborough follows up his "Blue Planet II" and "Planet Earth II" with another remarkable nature series called "Dynasties." It follows five of the world's most highly endangered species: lions, chimps, tigers, painted wolves and emperor penguins. (8 p.m., BBC America, AMC, IFC, Sundance TV).
