Just when we thought we were out, Narcos pulls us back in

Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Friday, September 1 and Saturday, September 2. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Narcos (Netflix, Friday at 3:01 a.m.): Pablo Escobar’s time came to an end last season, and Boyd Holbrook’s Steve Murphy has moved on, which means this is now the Pedro Pascal show (you won’t hear any objections from us). DEA agent Javier Peña’s (Pascal) profile is higher than ever in season three, but he’s not the only one trying to level up—the Cali cartels are trying to make the move into legitimate business. If you’ve seen The Godfather, you might know where this is going, but if not, Dennis Perkins will be on hand with daily reviews.


Regular coverage

BoJack Horseman (TV Club Classic, Friday and Saturday at 3 p.m.)
The Tick (Amazon, Saturday)

Wild card

Room 104 (HBO, Friday at 11:30 p.m.): It’s time to check in once more with the Duplass brothers’ anthology series, because “Voyeurs” is the best of what this format offers. Dayna Hanson directs this gorgeous, strange interlude that’s all heartache and choreography.
