TV Picks: 'Jane the Virgin,' 'Justified,' 'The Returned' and more
This week's picks include the American remake of French zombie show, final episodes of "Justified" and more.
* JANE THE VIRGIN. 9 tonight, CW57.
TV pregnancies are getting more complicated, though given that "Jane" (Gina Rodriguez) is a virgin who was mistakenly inseminated during a routine doctor's visit, I suppose this one was never going to be uncomplicated. Concern about possible problems with the baby have Jane and Rafael (Justin Baldoni) rethinking some plans.
* THE RETURNED. 10 tonight, A&E.
This isn't just eerily similar to the splendid French series about dead people coming back that Sundance TV aired in fall 2013. It's essentially the same show, remade in English. I could be a snob about it, but Carlton Cuse ("Lost"), whose "Bates Motel" has its season premiere at 9, has lost none of the beauty (or the horror) of the original in translation. Cast includes Michelle Forbes, Jeremy Sisto and Mark Pellegrino, of "Lost."
* DR. SANJAY GUPTA REPORTS, MILES O'BRIEN: A LIFE LOST AND FOUND. 9 p.m. Tuesday, CNN.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta reports on the freak accident in the Philippines a year ago that cost CNN contributor Miles O'Brien, a longtime science journalist, his left arm. His recovery has included learning to ride a bicycle again well enough to complete in a 300-mile charity ride, and a
return to flying a plane.
* JUSTIFIED. 10 p.m. Tuesday, FX.
If you swooned when Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) held his baby daughter last week, wait till you see him bantering with his old frenemy Boyd (Walton Goggins). "I gotta admit a small part of me is going to miss this when it's over," says Raylan. With the April 14 series finale looming, I'm feeling more than a little sad already.
* THE BIG BANG THEORY. 8 p.m. Thursday, 6ABC.
Things get tense between Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) when a magazine accidentally credits only one for a joint project.
