1) “Killjoys” season-opener, 10 p.m., Syfy. For four seasons, this Canadian series has delivered a dandy mix – smart dialog, great visuals, an appealing star (Hannah John-Kamen, shown here) … and, at times, neatly offbeat plots. Now the final season starts with one of those odd ones: On a moon, everyone is under a collective delusion.
2) “Agents of SHIELD,” 8 p.m., ABC. After tonight, “SHIELD” — already renewed for next season – will have only two more Fridays (one with a two-hour finale) this season. Tonight, ABC says, team members must trust each other while facing impending doom.
3) “Hawaii Five-0,” 9 p.m., CBS. In real life, the late Jackie Collins was a famous romance novelist. In this rerun, however, it’s her sister (Joan Collins, 86) who plays Danny’s former mother-in-law, a famous romance novelist. Also, Tani and Junior go undercover in a gym, tracking deadly steroids.
4) “Mr.” movies (1939), 8 and 10:15 p.m. ET, Turner Classic Movies. It’s “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” and “Goodbye Mr. Chips,” two reasons a documentary at 6:45 p.m. ET is titled “1939: Hollywood’s Greatest Year.” Both had Oscar nods for best picture, but Gone With the Wind” won. “Mr. Smith” had 11 nominations, winning for its script; “Mr. Chips” had seven, winning for its star, Robert Donal.
5) “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” and “Queer Eye” new seasons, Netflix. Two streaming shows reflect past broadcast success. “Comedians” has Jerry Seinfeld chatting with various people, some famous (Eddie Murphy, Ricky Gervais) and some relatively new (Melissa Villasenor, the first Latina regular on “Saturday Night Live”). “Queer Eye” is the reboot of a show that had 106 cable episodes.
