I’m so conflicted about this show’s seventh season. Yes, the season opener – with Negan and his baseball bat – was one of the most brutal things I have ever seen on television, but I keep coming back for the characters and their humanity. The gruesome zombies and zombie attacks are almost beside the point. I want to see Rick Grimes, Michonne & Co. survive (and prevail) in this crazy, mixed-up world. The second half of season seven premieres Sunday, Feb. 12, at 9 p.m. on AMC.

Also: The Grammy Awards air live at 5 p.m. on CBS (hosted by James Corden), “The Missing” is back for season two on Starz, “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” and “Girls” return to HBO, and for those who can’t wait for the Oscar ceremony (Feb. 26 on ABC), check out The British Academy of Film Awards at 8 p.m. on BBC America.

tmTatiana Maslany – Maslany finally got a long-deserved nomination for playing multiple roles in the clone drama “Orphan Black” on BBC America. Give this woman an Emmy already.

 

 

jtJeffrey Tambor – Character actor Tambor (known for “The Larry Sanders Show” and “Arrested Development”) was a revelation as transgender woman Maura Pfefferman in “Transparent,” a comedy series from Amazon.

 

‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ – Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) emerged from an underground bunker with a delightful burst of quirky humor in this Netflix fish-out-of-water comedy series, due in no small part to both Kemper and writer/producer Tina Fey.uks

broadchurch-season-2-bbc-americaLet’s not mince words here. One of the best British television dramas in recent memory returns for a second season (and let’s not even discuss the unfortunate American remake, “Gracepoint”). If you haven’t seen Season 1, do yourself a favor. Find it. Watch it. The second season finds Detective Sergeant Ellie Miller (the astounding Olivia Colman) and the citizens of Broadchurch dealing with the discoveries from the end of Season 1.10 p.m. Wednesday, March 4, on BBC America.

OB2_EP201_D5_00475In case you missed last Saturday’s season premiere, or worse yet, haven’t ever seen this clever, clone drama, you can jump in tonight with a repeat of the season two premiere. All the conspiracy stuff can get very complicated, but is worth watching for the amazing lead performance(s) of Tatiana Maslany in multiple roles. Seriously, this actress is amazing. 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 23, on BBC America.
