With so much to watch on TV, it can be difficult to plan ahead. But we’re here to help! Here are the five shows you won’t want to miss this week.
The Flash: Tuesday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m. on the CW
C’mon… you really thought Captain Cold was gone for good? Wentworth Miller resurrects his chilly rogue, who was previously seen perishing in the line of duty during Legends of Tomorrow’s first season, and tangles with both the Scarlet Speedster and a new villain, Mirror Master.
Designated Survivor: Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 10 p.m. on ABC
Real life and reel life collide when President Kirkman orders a risky Navy SEAL attack on foreign soil, much like President Obama’s top-secret 2011 mission that resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden. For the sake of Kirkman’s tenuous grip on power, let’s hope this has an equally positive outcome.
Good Girls Revolt: Friday, Oct. 28, on Amazon
Are you still missing Mad Men? Amazon’s ’60s era series might help fill the void, focusing on the emerging feminist movement through the eyes of female journalists — including a young Nora Ephron (played by Grace Gummer) — fighting for equal recognition and equal access to great stories in their male-dominated workplace.
The Fall: Saturday, Oct. 29, on Netflix
Due respect to The X-Files, but we’re more excited to see Gillian Anderson return as Stella Gibson than Dana Scully as the addictive cop drama The Fall premieres its third season.
Elementary: Sunday, Oct. 30, at 10 p.m. on CBS
Sorry Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, but the “other” Sherlock & Watson have handily lapped you for number of cases solved. Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu’s modern-day detectives celebrate their 100th episode by investigating the mysterious death of a financial expert.
