Taking flight

“Marlon” would be a utterly forgettable family sitcom if it weren’t for the frenzied energy of its star, Marlon Wayans. It’s worth sitting through the Season 2 premiere, which offers yet another twist on daddy-knows-worst, to watch the comic actor re-create scenes from a half-dozen flight-disaster movies. The “Scary Movie” veteran may not be as famous as some of his older brothers, but it’s not for lack of trying.

Roughing it

Seems as if the Twin Cities’ own Larry Roberts is craving more “Alone” time. The 46-year-old electrician, who was runner-up on Season 2 of the reality-survival series, returns in an all-star edition set in Mongolia. Roberts will compete against nine other veterans in this extreme version of “Survivor,” relying on only a few carefully chosen items, including a fishing rod, trapping wire and a saw.

Weird science

CBS All Access, the streaming service that offers “The Good Fight” and “Star Trek: Discovery,” has added an original drama, “Strange Angel,” based on the life of Jack Parsons, a pioneer in rocketry who also dabbled in the occult. Jack Reynor (“Transformers: Age of Extinction”) plays the controversial scientist, who died at 37 in a mysterious explosion at home.
