In the four-part series “Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat,” our impossibly upbeat tour guide takes us around the world to celebrate the ingredients that make the difference.

Sister act

Freak out

Some horror stories, like “Get Out,” have a socially conscious message. Then there’s “Into the Dark,” a new anthology series whose only mission is to give you the chills. In the opening episode, a hit man tries disposing of his latest victim on Halloween night, leaving plenty of carnage in his wake. Those who like their slasher films served straight up, no chaser, will scream in delight.
