Collider Weekly TV Guide: BROADCHURCH, AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D., DIG, and More

     March 2, 2015


The Collider Weekly TV Guide is a rundown of notable episodes, premieres, returns, finales, and opportunities to catch up on great shows (or cast an eye to the occasional TV train wreck). Here are the picks for the week beginning Monday, March 2nd:

Monday 3/2:

The Following Season 3 premiere (9 p.m, Fox) — Kevin Bacon returns in the latest season of Fox’s crazy serial killer show, which finds his nemesis Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) on death row. Viewers will note, however, that it’s really Bacon’s character who ends up being the reason so many around him perish.

Better Call Saul, “Alpine Shepherd Boy” (10 p.m., AMC) — Last week, Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) received a monetary windfall for his business, and the effects (and possible blowback) from it will start in this new episode, as he begins to build his empire. (Check Collider for weekly recaps after each episode airs)

Tuesday 3/3:

Billy & Billie series premiere (8 p.m., DirecTV) — Neil LaBute‘s drama series about step-siblings who fall in love (errrrr …), starring Adam Brody and Lisa Joyce.

weekly-tv-guide-agents-of-shieldHells Kitchen (8 p.m., Fox) — The premiere of the 14th season of chef Gordon Ramsay‘s long-running series has contestants presenting signature dishes for a chance to win a night out with William Shatner.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., “Aftershocks” (9 p.m., ABC) — S.H.I.E.L.D. returns from h.i.a.t.u.s. with a Hydra-focused return that may betray a traitor within S.H.I.E.L.D.’s ranks (I’m not exactly caught up but, again?) Keep an eye to Collider for recaps following each episode.

Wednesday 3/4:

Broadchurch Season 2 premiere (10 p.m., BBC America) — David Tennant and Olivia Coleman return for the second season of the beloved U.K. crime show. (Review forthcoming)

Empire, “Unto the Breach” (9 p.m., Fox) — Cookie (the unmatched Taraji P. Henson) and Anika (Grace Gealey) go to war in the latest episode of Fox’s meteoric hip-hop mogul drama, which defies ratings expectations week after week.
