Prime Picks

CSI: NY (CBS): Repeat. In “My Name Is Mac Taylor” from season five, the team searches for a killer after two victims named Mac Taylor are found dead.

Robin Hood (BBC America): New. Rufus takes Alan and Kate captive, so Robin takes his son and sets out to find his hiding place. Plays again later. Last week’s episode replays right before.

Law & Order: Special Victims (NBC): Repeat. This past Wednesday’s episode, “Sugar,” replays.

Solid Selections

Mercy (NBC): Repeat. This past Wednesday’s episode, “I Believe You Conrad,” replays, which highlights how weak the TV options are on a Saturday night. I gave this show a second shot by watching this episode, but it looks like it’ll be my last.

Trauma (NBC): Repeat. This past Monday’s series premiere episode, “Pilot,” replays. This on the other hand, is actually pretty good.

48 Hours Mystery (CBS): New. The story of a woman and her child that were forced to rob a bank by having dynamite strapped to them.
