I’ve been dealing with some personal issues so I apologize for literally being two days late on this. Yes, Monday and Tuesday picks? Totally useless. Sorry!

But you still have five days left to peruse including the returns of FX’s “Better Things” and Netflix’s “Ugly Delicious” and the season finales of HBO’s “The Outsider” and Showtime’s “Kidding.”

There is also a documentary of Hillary Clinton on Hulu and a Netflix film starring Mark Wahlberg "Spenser Confidential." And Apple TV+'s is launching "Amazing Stories" with Steven Spielberg's imprimatur.

Oh, and Nick Wallenda will walk over a volcano on ABC.

Plus, BET has a new hot show called "Twenties" based on the life of Lena Waithe.
