How Much Watching Time Do You Have This Weekend?


‘Couples Therapy’
When to look at: Friday at 8 p.m., on Showtime.

Oh, hallelujah, “Couples Therapy” is back for its third season, with nine episodes following 4 couples in states of crisis, each in search of the assistance of Dr. Orna Guralnik, queen of the sonorous “mmhm.” This season includes much more of Guralnik’s advising processes, including group discussions with other therapists who offer other perspectives and suggestions. Many unscripted shows, even high-end ones, solid for a similar types again and again, so I used to be surprised by how distinct this season’s patients are, with their very own spins on trust, authentic self-expression and gendered conflict. Two episodes air each week on Showtime, but all nine episodes can be found starting Friday on demand and the Showtime website.

‘Jailhouse Redemption’
When to look at: Now, on Discovery+.

This four-part documentary series follows the staff and inmates of a jail in Chesterfield, Va., who’re a part of HARP, a heroin-addition recovery program. The show is harrowing and its subjects’ candor sometimes breathtaking. “Jailhouse Redemption” presents a potent critique of carceral responses to medical and psychological problems; perhaps it isn’t only those coping with addiction who need “redemption” but additionally a society that’s at best casual about affirming human dignity.

‘The Essex Serpent’
When to look at: Arrives Friday, on Apple TV+.

Claire Danes and Tom Hiddleston star on this gorgeous, moody six-part adaptation of the 2017 novel by Sarah Perry. It’s 1893, and a few residents of London are feeling choked by industrialization while some residents of Essex think there’s a sea monster of their midst. You’ll be able to’t win! Like most shows of the moment, “Essex” is on the slower side, however the performances have a liveliness that’s often absent from period pieces — silly grimaces, glances which are more open than furtive, a humorousness. In case your soul craves the knitwear of “All Creatures Great and Small,” for those who just like the old-timey medical yuck factor of “The Knick,” or especially for those who want something freaky-deaky, watch this.
