Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Monday, February 4. All times are Eastern.


Top pick

Arrow (The CW, 8 p.m.): Tonight’s episode of the recently renewed Arrow is the show’s 150th (sidebar: Holy shit, that’s a lot of feeling conflicted about justice and vengeance and death and family and stuff). Naturally, the powers that be have chosen to celebrate that occasion by bringing in Frasier Crane to narrate an in-universe documentary about the exploits of Oliver Queen, Felicity Smoak, Dinah Drake, John Diggle, Not-Laurel Lance, and the rest of Arrow’s once-masked merrymakers.

We have questions. Perhaps, after this thing airs, Allison Shoemaker will have answers.

Regular coverage

I Am The Night (TNT, 9 p.m.)

Wild card

Elvis Goes There (Epix, 10 p.m.): Listen up, film nerds. This docuseries from journalist Elvis Mitchell sees Mitchell travel with filmmakers and actors to places around the world that have inspired or influenced them. The roster of people slated to appear includes Sofia Coppola, Ryan Coogler, and Guillermo del Toro, but things kick off with good old Paul Feig and his very nice suits. We’re into it.
