A Channel You've Never Heard of Has a Series Based on a Movie You've Mostly Forgotten
Inside Windsor Castle on Smithsonian Channel at 8:00pm ET. This is a series about the history of Windsor castle specifically, which is currently the oldest and largest continually inhabited castle in the world.
Claws on TNT at 9:00pm ET. First season finale.
Game of Thrones on HBO at 9:00pm ET. Only three episodes left in the season, including tonight. There’s a lot of ground to cover, so definitely be ready for more plot-backed episodes that seem a little shaky on logistics and character consistency.
Get Shorty on Epix at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. I guess when that Be Cool movie that was supposed to be the sequel to the original Get Shorty film failed 12 years ago, it really got the wheels turning that maybe they just needed to wait LONGER and find a way to tell the exact same story of scummy criminals becoming scummy entertainment executives in a series format! Good news, though, they changed the name of the main character from Chili Palmer to Miles Daly. That’ll make all the difference. At least it will if anyone figures out what channel “Epix” is.
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO at 11:00pm ET.
