If it’s true that trouble comes in threes, poor Jane (Hannah Vandenbygaart) had better watch her back in this 2019 melodrama. She’s recently gone through two devastating experiences, the trauma of seeing her parents’ long marriage collapse, followed by her own near-fatal car accident. Now, as she recovers from her injuries, Jane starts to fret that Mom’s new boyfriend seems a little too charming to be real. Jessalyn Gilsig and Jon Cor also star.
The fifth and final season of this sci-fi action dramedy, which has been delivering the thrills at a breakneck pace lately, hits its penultimate episode tonight with the new episode “Terraformance Anxiety.” It finds the Lady’s nefarious scheme — to alter the atmosphere of Westerly to accommodate her new master race — becoming a reality. That means that moon will be totally uninhabitable for humans, sending Dutch, John and D’avin (Hannah John-Kamen, Aaron Ashmore, Luke Macfarlane) scrambling to stop her.
From the fertile imaginations of sibling writer-directors Mark and Jay Duplass, this quirky anthology series — in which each episode revolves around characters who pass through the same room at a generic American chain motel — opens Season 3 with a premiere called “The Plot.” Luke Wilson and Christine Woods (“Brockmire”) star as an estranged brother and sister who reconnect at the site of their future joint investment. Macon Blair wrote and directed this episode.
Host Guy Fieri goes searching high and low for taste-bud ticklers from across the spectrum in the new episode “Far-Flung Flavor,” which starts at a Middle Eastern eatery offering juicy shawarma and salmon souvlaki in Santa Fe, N.M. Kansas City, Mo., is home to a funky spot that serves up some outrageously tasty Scandinavian specialties, while a family-run tortilla factory in El Paso, Texas, specializes in first-rate tamales and tostados.
