This is a mid-season premiere of the zombie apocalypse prequel show. Season 3 has brought us to Mexico as Madison, Travis, and the rest of the wasteland nomads try to find ways to live amid the end of the world.

In the second season of Top of the Lake, Elizabeth Moss investigates a human trafficking ring, even as she is still haunted by the events in the first season.

Season 4 takes its inspiration from stories in the comic book series Batman: The Long Halloween and Batman: Year One. It opens with Penguin solidifying his control over Gotham City and organizing criminals from his mayor’s office (he was elected mayor of Gotham in season 3). This season introduces Scarecrow to the supervillain mix, and the show takes a turn toward outright horror.
Big Bang Theory
Monday 9/25 at 8pm on CBS
Some say that the universe expands and condenses, expands and condenses in a series of big bangs and big crunches, over and over. When it comes to TV’s Big Bang Theory, we’re on our 11th journey from existence to non-existence and back. In the season 10 finale, Sheldon proposed marriage to Amy 😮. Don’t wait for the next version of the universe to see her answer.
