We’ll do it our way

For those who believe the Fonz was coolamundo and spent sleepless nights wondering why Joanie loved Chachi, Laverne and Shirley were heroic figures, if only because they refused to be bullied by folks who didn’t appreciate the exotic taste of milk and Pepsi. There is no talk of relaunching the groundbreaking sitcom — and there’s no need to, not as long as the dynamic duo of Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer keep their residency in “Broad City,” which returns for its third season. To them, New York City is their playground, where being embarrassed is a far worse sin than rooting for the Red Sox. Nothing — not urinating in one’s shorts, fighting for hand-me-downs at a pop-up clothing sale or openly mooning over Vanessa Williams — will get them down. This is TV’s most brazen, and hilarious, form of feminism: If the boys can be sex-driven, lazy and vulgar, why can’t women? I’ll drink to that — even if it means choking down a milk and Pepsi. 9 p.m. Wednesday, Comedy Central

St. Valentine’s massacre

Anyone who thought Rick and company would be able to trick the zombies by dressing up in dirty laundry hasn’t been paying close attention to “The Walking Dead,” which returns after graciously allowing viewers a few months to catch their breath. The carnage level is higher than usual, so be prepared to warn your family members ahead of time that the screams coming from the living room do not indicate that actual zombies have infiltrated the household. 8 p.m. Sunday, AMC

Revolution road

“The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution” sets viewers up for a fist-pumping tribute to the often misrepresented civil rights group, but director Stanley Nelson is too savvy and ambitious to simply deliver a love letter. The film, airing under the “Independent Lens” banner, exposes the group’s shortcomings and how J. Edgar Hoover used infighting (as well as FBI informants) to destroy the group from within. The soundtrack is top-notch. 8 p.m. Tuesday, TPT, Ch. 2

Picture pages

The streaming series “The New Yorker Presents” does its best to bring the pages of the renowned magazine to life. Some walks on the lighter side are a kick, most notably Paul Giamatti imagining a typical morning for the coffee-addicted Balzac. Attempts to condense long, exploratory features fall short in more ways than one, but if the goal is to steer viewers back to the written word, I did just that for a piece on rodeo kids did just that. New episodes available every Tuesday on Amazon.com
