Why You Should Watch: Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush shares the role of Albert Einstein with Johnny Flynn in this limited series — executive-produced by Ron Howard — that reviews the life and career of the brilliant physicist, starting in his teen years. This international production, which was filmed primarily in Prague, also stars Emily Watson as Einstein’s wife, Elsa, and T.R. Knight (“Grey’s Anatomy”) as J. Edgar Hoover, who becomes an adversary to Einstein as Adolph Hitler comes to power.
