Season Premiere

The Revolutionary War is brewing and finding its way all the way to North Carolina as the seventh season of the cult time-tripping romantic drama begins. But first, Jamie (Sam Heughan) and Young Ian (John Bell) flee to Wilmington to rescue Claire (Caitríona Balfe) from the gallows, having been falsely charged with murdering the pregnant Malva Christie, who had lied about Jamie being the father. (It’s complicated.) As Jamie prepares for service in the Continental Army, this will likely put him in direct contact with his British buddy Lord John Grey (David Berry), who’s raising Jamie’s illegitimate son William (Charles Vandervaart), who’s also a Redcoat. Did we mention it’s complicated? Also extremely addicting.

Documentary Premiere

A pop-culture marvel to put it mildly, Marvel Comics visionary Stan Lee (1922-2018) tells his life story in his own words, befitting an iconic creator who became a public celebrity (not unlike Alfred Hitchcock) with cameos in many of the movies and TV shows derived from his popular comics. The documentary from director David Gelb traces Lee’s career from his modest roots through the evolution of the Marvel brand to the blockbuster house of hits it remains after his death at 95. There will never be another quite like him.
