TV Worth Watching
"Greenleaf" (Tuesday and Wednesday on OWN at 10 p.m.)OWN
The Fall 2018-2019 TV season starts up in early-to-mid September, but this is a pretty quiet week on the new TV front. There's plenty to stream (see above on Netflix, Amazon, CBS All Access) and continuing greatness in "Castle Rock" and "Safe Harbour" on Hulu, "The Sinner" on USA, summer guilty pleasures in "Big Brother 20" and "Bachelor in Paradise," and the always great HBO Sunday night comedy block.
But in terms of new stuff on basic TV, beyond some reality shows, the best might be the launch of "Greenleaf" Season 3 in a two-episode special airing August 28 and August 29.
The Season 3 premiere, called "Strange Currents," has this synopsis:
"The Bishop and Lady Mae's crumbling marriage threatens to destroy the Greenleaf family, then a two-million dollar IRS tax bill arrives at Calvary, putting the church in danger."
Episode 2, airing the next night, is called "The Space Between":
"Grace takes Rochelle up on her offer to help start a legal defense fund; Bishop and Lady Mae ask if parishioner Clara Jackson's Powerball winnings can assist with their IRS bill."
