What’s On TV? – Sunday (11/24/2019) – ‘Watchmen’ Takes a Trip Down Memory Lane

0

No matter your tastes, this Sunday’s lineup has got you covered. Superheroes and conspiracy theories? Check. Ex-con dramedy? Check. Doppelganger horror? Check. Christmas shenanigans? Of course! Tonight should have something for even the pickiest viewer.

PICK OF THE DAY:

“Watchmen” (HBO) at 9:00 PM EST

“Watchmen” has been steadily gaining momentum over the first half of the season, and building up a tremendously loyal fanbase week by week. But now that it’s heading into the back half, it’s making a bold and intriguing move by interrupting the show’s narrative arc for what appears to be a standalone episode. After taking Nostalgia, an illegal and dangerous drug that allows the user to access stored memories, Angela (Regina King) is about to get a firsthand glimpse into Will Reeves’ past.

WHAT’S ENDING?:

“Back to Life” (Showtime) at 10:30 PM EST

“Back to Life” feels like it’s only been on the air for a split second, and it’s already ending way too fast. That’s because Showtime made the decision to air two episodes each Sunday, burning through the entire series in just three weeks. Still, even though “Back to Life” has been in our lives for just a short time, we’ll miss the scrappy little show about hard-fought second chances. And there is a silver lining: earlier this week, Showtime announced that they would be renewing “Back to Life” for a second season.

MOVIES ON TV:

“Home Alone” Double Feature (Freeform) at 6:45 PM EST

Thanksgiving is basically just a prelude to Christmas, right? A bit of a dress rehearsal, so that you can practice interacting with your relations before the big show. Despite the fact that it’s not quite December yet, it’s time to get into the holiday spirit by watching two of the greatest Christmas films in cinematic history. Watch Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) overcome the burdens of a shockingly neglectful family, fight off menacing yet woefully incompetent burglars, and befriend both elderly neighbors and homeless bird ladies.

“Us” (HBO) at 6:55 PM EST

Perhaps getting the opportunity to re-watch (or watch for the first time, if you missed it in theaters) Jordan Peele’s sophomore effort “Us” will convince audiences that Lupita Nyong’o deserves a second Oscar nomination. Her work here is remarkably physical, a terrifying ballet of rage and pain. Peele presents an exploration of social status and privilege driven to their logical extremes, with a literal subclass of doppelgangers lurking in the shadows, watching and waiting.
