4 TV Shows to Watch in 2016
from The Week
We’re deep into the era of “peak TV,” and even the most dedicated viewer can have a hard time keeping track of the shows on in a single evening — let alone a single year. With old favorites returning for another run, promising new shows arriving all the time, and entire seasons arriving on a variety of streaming services, how can you keep up? Here are some coming up this month:
- 1. The Walking Dead (AMC, February 14) AMC’s unstoppable zombie juggernaut continues to chug along with no end in sight. The zombie drama tested critics’ patience by pretending to kill off a major character, but ratings have remained sky-high. And fans of the original Walking Dead comic-book series based have an extra reason to tune in for the back half of season six: the long-awaited introduction of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), the TV show’s most notorious villain.
- 2. Vinyl (HBO, February 14) Boardwalk Empire may be over, but Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter’s creative collaboration continues to bear fruit. Their latest TV series follows an ambitious record executive (Bobby Cannavale) navigating the New York City music scene in the 1970s. Vinyl’s extensive supporting cast also includes Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, and Juno Temple.
- 3. 11.22.63 (Hulu, February 15)Hulu’s newest and biggest original series is clearly designed for maximum buzz: A historical sci-fi thriller based on Stephen King’s bestselling novel of the same name, produced by J.J. Abrams and starring James Franco. The series follows a time traveler (Franco) attempting to prevent Lee Harvey Oswald from assassinating President Kennedy. It’s a hoary premise, but Stephen King worked wonders with it, giving the TV show a promising blueprint to make 11.22.63 shine.
- 4. Better Call Saul (AMC, February 15)Last year, AMC’s Breaking Bad prequel/spin-off Better Call Saul overcame some very understandable skepticism to emerge as a top-notch drama in its own right. The second season promises to take Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) further down the road to corruption that eventually sees him remake himself as Saul Goodman, the sketchy-but-savvy lawyer who becomes one of Walt and Jesse’s key allies in Breaking Bad.
