Next Week in TV 9/17: Emmy Awards and the return to Gotham

By DRWHO42, Alyssa, & Mario Wario

Tonight kicks off with the celebration of excellence in television with the 69th the fall award season with the Primetime Emmy Awards. There will be a lot to cheer for with a number of us hoping for awards bestowed to Benedict Cumberbatch, Bob Odenkirk, Elizabeth Moss, Millie Bobby Brown, David Harbour, Thandie Newton, The Duffer Brothers, Stranger Things, Westworld, Sherlock, along with the nominees from This is Us. 

Gotham, The Good Place, Transparent, El Chapo, and Channel Zero top our list of season premieres this week. One part of the ‘we’ is highly anticipating the premiere of the series, Vietnam by Ken Burns.

Lastly, The Strain will wrap up its run this week. We will also say to The Sinner, Zoo, Salvation, and Midnight, Texas. No word yet on whether Midnight returns and the online campaign has begun a few weeks back so if you are a fan of the series make your voice heard.

Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s ten-part, 18-hour documentary series, THE VIETNAM WAR, tells the epic story of one of the most consequential, divisive, and controversial events in American history as it has never before been told on film. Visceral and immersive, the series explores the human dimensions of the war through revelatory testimony of nearly 80 witnesses from all sides—Americans who fought in the war and others who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam. Ten years in the making, the series includes rarely seen and digitally re-mastered archival footage from sources around the globe, photographs taken by some of the most celebrated photojournalists of the 20th Century, historic television broadcasts, evocative home movies, and secret audio recordings from inside the Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon administrations. THE VIETNAM WAR features more than 100 iconic musical recordings from greatest artists of the era and haunting original music from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross as well as the Silk Road Ensemble featuring Yo-Yo Ma.
