Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Monday, December 3. All times are Eastern.


Top pick

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow (The CW, 9 p.m.): Legends Of Tomorrow’s evolution into one of TV’s most consistently entertaining shows has been a joy to watch, and our appreciation of its many delights is well-documented. This week’s episode sees—OH FUCK, CREEPY DOLLS.

This is the part of the article where we say more about the episode in question, but creepy dolls. We might also say something about Caity Lotz’s performance as Sara Lance, but creepy dolls. Here we’d probably also acknowledge that the title of this episode is “Hell No, Dolly!” and that’s fun, and then we’d note that Legends has a real knack for episode titles, but Creepy. Fuckin’. Dolls.

Allison Shoemaker plans to write her usual recap, so keep her in your thoughts.

Regular coverage

My Brilliant Friend (HBO, 9 p.m.)

Wild card

Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland (HBO, 10 p.m.): Filmmakers Kate Davis and David Heilbroner followed Sandra Bland’s family as they searched for answers in the days, weeks, months, and years following her death. This is the film that resulted. Made for HBO, the film received a theatrical release ahead of its bow on the network tonight; the Boston Globe’s Ty Burr wrote in his review that it “navigates a steady path between haters on one side and conspiracy nuts on the other; it’s an angry movie that uses its inside voice.” It should go without saying that this is a story that deserves your attention.
