Judgment day

Ron Perlman’s arsenal of morally ambiguous protagonists just got heftier with “Hand of God,” the latest offering from Amazon. Perlman, best known for straddling the ethics line in “Hellboy” and “Sons of Anarchy,” plays a corrupt judge who reacts to his son’s attempted suicide by becoming a born-again Christian — with a set of questionable commandments that include ordering the assassination of a seemingly innocent suspect. The drama, created by “Burn Notice” vet Ben Watkins, offers nothing new in the twists-and-turns department — how will Hizzoner hide the body and still make it in time for family counseling? — but you’re unlikely to see a show anywhere else that tackles religious hypocrisy so powerfully, including the edgiest cable outlets. In other words, don’t count on a free screening at Sunday school. Now streaming on Amazonoriginals.com

Not so elementary

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle channels the spirit, but not the skills, of his most famous creation, Sherlock Holmes, in “Arthur & George,” a three-part miniseries that could just as easily have been called “The Case of the Overblown Ego.” Martin Clunes plays the renowned author, who reacts to his wife’s death by getting involved in a mystery devoid of convenient clues. 7 p.m. Sunday, TPT, Ch. 2

A house divided

A restored version of “The Civil War,” the TV event that made Ken Burns America’s most popular history teacher, airs over five nights, reminding us of the punch simple narration and stark photographs can deliver when presented by a master. The documentary coincides with the original broadcast’s 25th anniversary. 8 p.m. Mon.-Fri., TPT, Ch. 2

A ‘Key’ loss

A lot of performers talk about going out on top, but “Key & Peele” are actually doing it. Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele are retiring their influential sketch-comedy show after just five short seasons, a serious loss at a time when the country desperately needs cutting, thought-provoking comedy about race relations. My hope is that the pair will still be around long after this final hour of the series. 9 p.m. Wed., Comedy Central
