    New on Netflix

    This is a topical week for Netflix, with the originals "Casting JonBenet," "Dear White People," and "Rodney King" all arriving April 28.

    "Dear White People"
    YouTubers already have strong feelings about this series, even before seeing it (shocking), down-voting it just based on the trailer and premise. "Based on the acclaimed indie film, this series satirizes 'post-racial' America as students of color navigate a predominantly white Ivy League college." Click the link for the trailer.

    "Casting JonBenet"
    Two decades after the 1996 death of 6-year-old pageant princess JonBenet Ramsey, director Kitty Green returns to audition local Boulder, Colorado actors, unpacking how each remembers and relates to the ill-fated Ramsey family. This production blurs the lines between documentary and drama in its own off-putting, tragic way. It also arrives on Netflix April 28.

    "Rodney King"
    Spike Lee filmed Roger Guenveur Smith in this one-man show taking viewers back to 1991, to the beating of Rodney King, and the 1992 L.A. riots. Don't go into this expecting a movie or a documentary, it's a one-man spoken-word portrait.

    "Small Crimes" (Netflix Original)Nikolaj Coster-Waldau leaves Jaime Lannister far behind in this new Netflix crime drama about a disgraced former cop looking for redemption after serving time for the attempted murder of a District Attorney. "An embarrassment to his parents and abandoned by his ex-wife, it seems as if things can't get much worse. But then Joe finds himself trapped in the mess he left behind -- in the cross fire between a crooked sheriff, the vengeful DA, and a mafia kingpin who knows too much." It's on Netflix April 28.

    "The 101-Year-Old Man Who Skipped Out on the Bill and Disappeared" (Netflix Original)
    In lighter news, this wonderfully titled black comedy was a hit in its native Sweden, and you can stream it April 25 on Netflix. "In need of money, an eccentric ex-spy and his younger octogenarian partner embark on an international quest for a valuable Soviet soda formula."

  3. Why 'The Walking Dead' Season 7 Finale Cut a Richonne and Carl Scene 

    "The Walking Dead" showrunner is so fond of a scene that didn't air in the Season 7 finale that, in his mind, it "absolutely did happen." We just didn't get to see it on screen. Scott M. Gimple told Entertainment Weekly the scene in question will almost definitely be in the deleted scenes for Season 7, when the AMC show arrives on Blu-ray/DVD.

    Here's Gimple's breakdown of the Team Richonne scene that did not make the cut, and why it ended up being removed:

    "There is a lovely scene with Rick and Carl with Michonne and I'm hoping I put it in the deleted scenes. I'm pretty sure I did. That sets up that moment a little bit between Rick and Negan. And I don't feel we needed to set it up. But it was a lovely scene that kind of did. It was strictly about time. This was already an hour and a half episode. This was sort of a long scene and it wasn't 100 percent necessary, but I really did like it and I believe it will be included as part of the deleted scenes.

    That scene in my mind absolutely did happen in the show. You just didn't see it. And I think about that a lot. I think there are a lot of scenes that go on that we don't see. And I could have followed any one of those characters throughout the whole day. It's actually a very flummoxing sort of part of this. When you have an ensemble show and you want to have beginnings and middles and ends of each character's story, you could easily tell those. It's just a factor of time and also wanting to also keep things moving along and not overload the audience with information. Maybe in the future, we'll be doing ensemble shows where we do all 18 characters and take a deep dive. [Laughs]"

    Oh, now he's worried about keeping things moving along?

    Anyway, the Season 7 finale did give us a moment with Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Michonne (Danai Gurira), after Shiva saved Rick and Carl Grimes (Chandler Riggs), to show that Michonne was hurt, but not dead, as Rick feared.

    From here, the more Richonne the better. Their little family -- plus Judith, who was wherever she was, and Baby Gleggie -- represent the future they are fighting for in All Out War.

    "The Walking Dead" Season 8 should start filming in early May for its October premiere. If you're interested in that deleted scene, Anchor Bay usually releases TWD DVDs/Blu-rays in August.

    TV Worth Watching

    "The Leftovers" (Sunday on HBO at 9 p.m.)
    It's time to stop talking, and start chain-smoking as you dress all in white and glare at a stranger until they can't take it, because the final season of "The Leftovers" is here! The beleaguered Kevin Garvey (Justin Theroux) is back in the Season 3 premiere, "The Book of Kevin," which is set three years after Season 2 saw Miracle, Texas overrun by the Guilty Remnant. Now Kevin returns to his role as chief of police as the seventh anniversary of the Sudden Departure approaches, and many believe another apocalyptic event will happen.

    "Better Call Saul" (Monday on AMC at 10 p.m.)
    Bob Odenkirk's third season of this fantastic "Breaking Bad" prequel still sees "Saul" as Jimmy McGill, who was left in a bit of a pickle in the Season 2 finale after his brother Chuck (Michael McKean) caught him confessing on tape. Season 3 will introduce future "Breaking Bad" villain Gus Fring (Giancarlo Esposito), which is certainly something to look forward to.

    "Veep" (Sunday on HBO at 10:30 p.m.)
    The best comedy on television today -- don't argue! -- returns with Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) arguably at her lowest point. She's not even the title at this point, never mind POTUS. Instead, the Season 6 premiere, titled "Omaha," follows her one year after losing the presidency, as she attempts to secure her legacy. Meanwhile, Dan tries to ingratiate himself at his new job (shocker), and Amy's brash personality proves too much for her new co-workers.

    "Doctor Who" (Saturday on BBC America at 9 p.m.)
    Peter Capaldi's Time Lord returns for his final round in Season 10, which starts with "The Pilot." Here's the BBC's synopsis: "[B]efore he hands over the key to the Tardis to his as-yet-undecided successor, there's the matter of the girl with a star in her eye to deal with. A chance encounter brings Bill Potts into contact with the Doctor, who is conducting a secret mission on Earth. What follows is a terrifying chase across time and space, one that opens Bill's mind to the prospect of a bigger and wider universe than she'd ever imagined. Pearl Mackie makes her debut Doctor Who appearance as new companion Bill, while Matt Lucas also stars as the Doctor's old ally Nardole."

    "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" (Tuesday on FOX at 8 p.m.)
    Season 4 returns from winter break on April 11 with "The Audit." Here's FOX's synopsis: "With the crime rate lowered, Brooklyn will be shutting down one of its precincts - permanently. The Nine-Nine is confident they will be evaluated fairly, until the official auditor turns out to be Amy's ex-boyfriend, Teddy (guest star Kyle Bornheimer). The whole squad then must band together to try to save the precinct."

    TV Worth Watching

    "The Young Pope" Season 1 (Sunday on HBO at 9 p.m.)Jude Law plays controversial (and -- gasp! -- American) Pope Pius XIII in Paolo Sorrentino's 10-episode limited series. Law's Pope Pius, born Lenny Belardo, is the newly elected pontiff and former Archbishop of New York. Diane Keaton plays the American nun who raised the younger Belardo in an orphanage and is appointed his new personal secretary. James Cromwell and Scott Shepherd co-star in the series, which has already been given a second season.

    "Colony" Season 2 (Thursday on USA Network at 10 p.m.)
    USA's vastly underappreciated sci-fi drama returns January 12, set in a dystopian near-future Los Angeles which has been colonized by extraterrestrial invaders and now run by a militarized regime of collaborating humans. Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies star as the married-with-children Bowmans, who take very different approaches to surviving the occupation. It is definitely worth your time to binge the first 10 episodes before diving in to see what happens in Season 2.

    "Victoria" Season 1 (Sunday on PBS at 9 p.m.)Netflix put "The Crown" on Queen Elizabeth II, but PBS has the epic saga of Queen Victoria. Jenna Coleman and Rufus Sewell star in the ITV series, which is heading across the pond with a two-hour premiere on January 15. Here's the first episode synopsis: "The story of Queen Victoria, who ascended to the throne at age 18 in 1837, begins with the young Victoria struggling to assert control amidst plots to manipulate her. Her friendship with the prime minister, meanwhile, leads to a crisis in Parliament." ITV premiered this back in August in the U.K., and it has already been renewed for a second season, followed by a Christmas special, both to air in 2017. So PBS will probably get them around this time in 2018.

    "Homeland" Season 6 (Sunday on Showtime at 9 p.m.)
    Carrie -- and, somehow -- Quinn are back in Season 6, which is set in New York and follows its own presidential election. (Elizabeth Marvel of "House of Cards" finally managed to get elected POTUS on "Homeland.") The January 15 premiere, "Fair Game," has this synopsis from Showtime: "Carrie returns home to the US with Franny to work as an advocate for Muslim Americans. Dar and Saul brief President-elect Keane. Quinn struggles with his new circumstances."

    "Taboo" Season 1 (Tuesday on FX at 10 p.m.)
    Tom Hardy co-created and stars in this gritty, eight-episode FX drama set in 1814 London. Here's part of The Hollywood Reporter's review, "Through its first three episodes, it definitely has enough intrigue for the long haul -- thanks in large part to Hardy -- but the show isn't particularly action-oriented and is, in fact, overtly unsexy, save for Hardy's tattoo-laced body seen in various states of undress." Collider also checked out the first three episodes and wrote, "[U]nlike 'Bastard Executioner,' 'Taboo' feels like a polished BBC production (the BBC co-produced it, naturally), one with a clear sense of itself and its purpose, with a pace that may be a little slow to start for some, but where an investment seems wise."

    Alia Shawkat plays Dory, who becomes obsessed with finding out what happened to her missing college acquaintance Chantal -- even though none of her other friends care -- in this new dark comedy/mystery on TBS. According to Deadline, the entire first season is airing during Thanksgiving week, with two episodes each night from 11 p.m. to midnight. It all starts November 21 with "The Mysterious Disappearance of The Girl No One Knew" and "The Woman Who Knew Too Much."

    "Dancing With the Stars" (Tuesday on ABC at 9 p.m.)
    This is it. The Fall 2016 Season 23 is coming to a close, and James Hinchcliffe, Laurie Hernandez, or Calvin Johnson will win the coveted Mirror Ball trophy. (Jana Kramer is also still a contender, but she seems less likely to win. But we could be wrong.) After two hours of dancing from 8 to 10 on Monday, the Finale will air from 9 to 11 p.m. Tuesday, with the finalists dancing one last time, and the winner most likely revealed around 10:57 p.m. ET.

    "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" & "National Dog Show" (Thursday on NBC at 9 a.m.)
    It's time for another great Thanksgiving Day tradition: Watching all, or at least part, of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade from 9 a.m. to noon, then chasing that with purebred shenanigans from John O'Hurley, David Frei, Tara Lipinski, Johnny Weir, and the beautiful canine stars of the 15th annual National Dog Show. Here's hoping the Komondor finally wins this year.

  25. 'Game of Thrones': Arya Tells Critics to 'Just Leave' in Meta Deleted Scene
    If you think the violence, nudity, and profanity on "Game of Thrones" is "gratuitous," well, Arya Stark has a special message for you ..."Game of Thrones: The Complete Sixth Season" is now out on Blu-ray and DVD, and a video including 11 minutes of deleted scenes is making the rounds on the Internet. You may have already seen the scene with Lady Olenna Tyrell, but there's a lot more, including a waaaaaaaaay longer version of the Westeros play in Braavos.

    During the play, two Mrs. Dursley-like spectators sniff to each other in distaste, before Arya Stark tells them off.

    Spectator: "Violence and profanity. How original."

    Arya: "Why don't you just leave, then?"

    The two women later laugh during Ned Stark/King Robert scenes -- which Arya does not like, since they make her father look bad. The women do eventually leave after the Tyrion/Sansa wedding night scene, which reveals play Sansa's breasts, calling the nudity "utterly gratuitous" and "disgusting and unacceptable."

    So, yeah, GoT is calling out its own critics.

    Warning: Brief nudity in video:What's really gratuitous and unacceptable is the length of that play scene. They were right to chop it down.

    "Game of Thrones" Season 7 is now shooting for a summer 2017 premiere.
