Prime Picks

The Rook (Starz): New. “Chapter 5.” Starts three minutes after the hour and runs 57 minutes. Plays again later two times. Last week’s episode, “Chapter 4,” replays right before.

Pennyworth (Epix): Series Premiere. The story of the man that will be the butler to the Wayne family and thus Bruce Wayne is told as he is just out of the military and endeavoring to start his own security company. Runs 75 minutes. Plays twice and again later. Quite enjoyed tonight’s series premiere episode. Loved the slightly askew version of 1962 London as the backdrop. There is very little actual backstory for this character, so they have a lot of room to play with it without stepping on mythology that people already know. The show has the feel of a Bond movie from the Sean Connery era in look. I look forward to following more of the Pennyworth journey. Will you be checking this one out tonight?

Perpetual Grace LTD (Epix): New. Ma and Pa deal with some cartel members. James learns some new things. Runs 50 minutes. Plays twice and again later.
