Plenty of new shows this week! The Doctor gives us a pirate battle with the Sea Devils. Russian Doll drops a new season (no word on if it involves anything Ukrainian,) as does Better Call Saul, but only the first two episodes. Riverdale turns Archie into a folk hero. The Good Doctor gets mechanical and meta. The Blacklist finally acknowledges that Red is actually in charge. We also get new Moon Knight, Young Justice, Picard, and Halo, but no advanced descriptions.

Anyone catch Outer Range?
No, but you’re the second person to ask about it, so I added it to the BBTT. It looks like Cowboys with Sci-Fi from the very, very, very cursory glance I gave it. What do you think of it?
I have not watched it yet and was looking for another opinion. One description I hear that it was Yellowstone meets Twin Peaks.
