Burden of Truth (Universal, Thursday 7 February, 9pm) and Grey’s Anatomy spinoff Station 19 (Sky Witness, tonight, 10pm) are both back for their second seasons this week, while Grey’s itself returns for the second half of its fifteenth season (Sky Witness, tonight, 9pm).
Meantime, NBC’s medical drama New Amsterdam gets under way on Amazon Prime on Friday 8 February. Tom Keen from The Blacklist stars as Dr Max Goodwin, who is hired as the new chief of medicine at New Amsterdam hospital. Critics were lukewarm, but it’s done well enough in the American ratings to be renewed for a second season.
Finally, season 2 of American Crime Story – The Assassination of Gianni Versace – has turned up on Netflix in the UK. When it was first shown here I didn’t watch it, on the basis of a couple of less-than-encouraging reviews from US critics whose opinions I generally trust. I then had to sit on the sidelines as it was lavished with praise and awards. So here’s my chance. No matter how good it is, though, I’m still not expecting it to match up to season 1, The People v. O.J. Simpson, which I continue to regard as a landmark show. Nor will I be watching it until I’ve finished Russian Doll, also on Netflix, which on the basis of the episodes I’ve seen so far is flat-out amazing.
