Wild, wild west
If your head has finally stopped reeling from all the twists, turns and time jumps in Season 1 of “Westworld,” you might just be ready for new episodes. They’re far less confusing but equally grim, with the “hosts” running amok on an even bloodier, more violent battlefield. Oh, and Shogun World is open for business. Enter at your own peril.

Watching paint dry
“Genius: Picasso” seems like an appropriate follow-up to last year’s miniseries about Albert Einstein, but based on the first four episodes, the producers and their star, Antonio Banderas, seem more enthralled with Pablo Picasso’s way with women than his talent with a paintbrush. If romancing young women is a sign of genius, will next year’s target be Hugh Hefner? To fully appreciate the artist, skip this Harlequin romance and log some time at a museum.

Literary snobs may revolt at “The Handmaid’s Tale” continuing beyond Margaret Atwood’s classic 1985 novel, but Elisabeth Moss and company will keep the rest of us riveted during 13 new episodes, which pick up seconds after last year’s Emmy-winning batch. Anyone fantasizing Moss’ June would head straight to Canada will be scared straight by the opener, which uses Kate Bush’s “This Woman’s Work” as the score for a scene as haunting as anything from Season 1.
