Top picks

Unbelievable (Netflix, Friday, 3:01 a.m.) and Undone (Amazon, Friday, 3:01 a.m.): It’s not light viewing, by any stretch, but believe us on this: Unbelievable is well worth your time. That would probably be true of anything with Merritt Wever, Toni Collette,...

Top pick

BH90210 (Fox, 9 p.m.): Let’s get meta.

Top picks

Lodge 49 (AMC, 10:01 p.m.): Have we mentioned how much we love Lodge 49? Once or twice, maybe? Maybe the fact that Danette Chavez has given each of this season’s episodes either an A or an A- thus far gives it away?
