The Collider Weekly TV Guide is a rundown of notable episodes, premieres, returns, finales, and opportunities to catch up on great shows (or cast an eye to the occasional TV train wreck). Check out our picks for the week of Monday, November 30th:
Gotham, “Rise of the Villains: Worse Than a Game” (Fox, 8 p.m.) – Season 2 of this eclectic bit of DC nonsense hits its fall finale with little Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) getting kidnapped and Gordon (Ben McKenzie) taking up partnerships with a number of unlikely figures to track down the young not-Batman.
Minority Report, “Everyone Runs” (Fox, 9 p.m.) – This initially promising series hits the dirt alongside a number of Fall 2015 pilot series with the precogs and Vega (Meagan Good) trying to thwart a terrorist attack from Memento Mori.
Fargo, “Loplop” (FX, 10 p.m.) – One of the best seasons of 2015 television continues on as Dodd (Jeffrey Donovan) finds himself on unsteady terrain, following his recent aggressive moments, and Hanzzee (Zahn McClarnon) tries to find the Blumquists (Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst).
The Flash, “Legends of Today” (CW, 8 p.m.) – The time is now! the Arrow–The Flash crossover episode begins here with Casper Crump’s Vandal Savage attacking Barry (Grant Gustin), Cisco (Carlos Valdes), and Kendra (Ciara Renee), causing the fast one to ask for some help from his friend Oliver (Stephen Amell). But then Hawkman shows up and…oh, just watch the damn episode.
Arrow, “Legends of Yesterday” (CW, 8 p.m.) – The second part of the Arrow–The Flash crossover episode sees Oliver (Amell), Barry (Gustin), and Savage (Crump) meeting with one another to stop all the chaos that started with Savage’s attack on The Flash and his close friends. Prepare for high-voltage nerding out.
Emperor, “Et tu, Brute?” (Fox, 9 p.m.) – Mirroring the current bidding war over the best streaming music service, Season 2 of this giddily lunatic melodrama sees Lucious (Terrence Howard) trying to secure and launch his own streaming service, while Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) planning a concert at her former jail.
The Wiz Live! (NBC, 8 p.m.) – Newcomer Shanice Wallace, Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, David Alan Grier, Ne-Yo, Common, and Elijah Kelley top-line this assumedly wretched (considering NBC’s track record with these efforts) live remake of the original Michael Jackson-starring sequel to The Wizard of Oz. Watch sober at your own risk.
The Knick, “Not Well at All” (Cinemax, 10 p.m.) – Thackery (Clive Owen) takes his latest medical miracle cure to the inebriation ward and Bertie (the great Michael Angarano) finds his relationship with Jewish writer Genevieve (Arielle Goldman) going off into unexpected terrain in the latest episode of television’s best drama.
Ash vs. Evil Dead, “The Killer of Killers” (Starz, 9 p.m.) – Starz’s best show to date continues it’s staggeringly good first season with Ash (Bruce Campbell) making a revelation about his place as the hero against the deadites, while his cohorts make their own ominous findings.
Homeland, “New Normal” (Showtime, 9 p.m.) – A new threat, which was obviously needed in the world of Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), reveals itself in the latest episode of Homeland’s thrilling, thoughtful fifth season, cementing its place as Showtime’s finest program to date.
The Leftovers, “I Live Here Now” (HBO, 9 p.m.) – The Season 2 finale of this hugely fascinating but flawed HBO series, John (Kevin Carroll) isn’t particularly convinced by the revelation by Kevin (Justin Theroux) about Evie’s disappearance. Meanwhile, the fourth anniversary of the Departure brings a whole bunch of trouble to Miracle.
