As we recover from Thanksgiving and Black Friday we are gearing up for an epic week of TV starting off with the Arrow-verse crossover event Crisis on Earth-X. This four-part crossover, touching on each of the CW’s hero series, will be the marquee event of the fall TV season for The CW.
For those looking for a fun kickoff to the holiday season tune into Comedy Central for its Drunk History Christmas Special. Over on the History channel favorite Vikings on Wednesday for its 5th season with a two hour premiere. Be sure to tune in to the History channel one hour prior to the premiere for the recap special.
Friday night will feature the triumphant return of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as it returns for its 5th season. The first 20 minutes was screened at New York Comic Con and from what we saw this season will be the best yet. The reaction from the crowd was electric.
The streaming platforms will have plenty to offer this week. Netflix will not disappoint with the the second season premieres of the Australian series Glitch, The Dark, and Easy. Also, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, a series set in the 1950’s which centers on a housewife who decides to become a standup comedian, makes its debut on Amazon. Lastly, Hulu’s Chance, starring Hugh Laurie, wraps up its season season.
Other highlights this week will be Designated Survivor, which will see President Kirkman embark on a secret mission to Afghanistan. This second season has been great so far and this week looks build on that. Also, if you are not watching Blindspot you certainly missing out on a great action-packed third season. Likewise, this weeks episode of Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comics will cover “New York City’s connection to the comic industry and how the tragedies of 9/11 affected the artists and their work. It’s a look into how art, especially in comics, imitates life.”
