Court of appeal
“The Good Wife” was one of the sharpest network dramas of the past decade, which means high expectations for its sequel, “The Good Fight.” Great news: The series is terrific, with Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) taking center stage, and veteran actors relishing the opportunity to snack on mature, smart dialogue. The bad news: After Sunday’s premiere, episodes will be available only on CBS’ new digital All Access channel, which means ponying up a few bucks. Bite the bullet; it’s worth it.

Big Cat Week, which has corralled new nature documentaries for the seventh year in a row, roars into action with “Battle for the Pride,” which tracks lions in Botswana as they try to prepare their cubs for the real world. Think “The Lion King” but without the Elton John-Tim Rice ditties. Later films this week focus on the life of a jaguar and the relationship between domesticated kitties and their wilder cousins.

An American master
She may be best known as President Bill Clinton’s go-to poet, but “Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise” presents an American icon whose contributions to pop music, theater and the civil rights movement are underappreciated.

By the end of the two-hour film, you’ll know why the caged bird sings — and why it’s so vital we continue to hear her tune.
