What’s on TV: ‘The Walking Dead: A New Frontier,’ ‘Sense8’

by John_A

The third season of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead series is here, with the first two epsidoes available on PC, Xbox One and PS4. While most TV shows drop off for a holiday break, we’ll enjoy bowl games including the mighty Ohio Bobcats vs. Troy in the Dollar General Bowl. If that’s not your speed, then just open up Netflix. It’s new miniseries The OA is perfect binge material for a long weekend, plus this weekend it’s dropping a Sense8 holiday special, and a new time travel series, Travelers. On TV, BBC America airs a Doctor Who Christmas special episode Sunday night. Look after the break to check out each day’s highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
