Here’s what we’ve been watching on television.
Bates Motel: Nice Town You Picked, Norma
Doctor Who: The Bells of Saint John
- Excerpt: Rather than being the ‘epic’ so often promised by showrunner/head writer Steven Moffat, The Bells of Saint John goes to his old bag of tricks, turning the Doctor almost literally into an organ grinder’s monkey.
Elementary: Deja Vu All Over Again
Family Ties: The Sixth Season
- Excerpt: You can tell that “Family Ties” has begun its descent by its sixth season, but the show still holds up as an appealing family sitcom with worthwhile stories it still tells sharply.
Golden Boy: Role Models
Golden Boy: Vicious Cycle
Move Over “Girls” — Time for Cable TV’s Real Women
