1) American Film Institute tribute, 8 and 11:45 p.m. ET, Turner Classic Movies. Sure, Julie Andrews is known for “The Sound of Music.” This tribute includes five of her kids in the film, plus Cynthia Erivo singing “Edelweiss.” But TCM shows us Andrews’ range, in a pair of films with James Garner. At 9:15 p.m., it has “Victor/Victoria” (shown here, 1983), one of seven comedies she did with her husband, Blake Edwards; at 1 a.m. is “The Americanization of Emily” (1964), a smart, black-and-white drama.
2) “SWAT,” 8 p.m., CBS. Starting next week, this slot goes to a reality show, “Secret Celebrity Renovation.” But “SWAT” will return to Fridays this fall … and for now, it’s at 10 p.m. Wednesdays. This week, that’s where it reran the season-opener, with Hondo retreating to a small Mexican town. That continues tonight, when he links with a local cop, to try a dangerous rescue.
3) “Warehouse 13,” 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Syfy; rerunning 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. Here’s the first season of an above-average series that mixed drama with a tad of whimsy. In a hidden bunker, we’re told, the government holds the artifacts – some supernatural – from the past. In the two-part opener, a duo is put in charge of finding and protecting them. There will be more next Friday.
4) “Forever Summer: Hamptons,” any time, Amazon Prime. There really are people – a few, anyway – whose summers match the beach movies. Here are some who grew up in Westhampton, plus one summer arrival. Most are very attractive; all are financially comfortable and ready to party. Despite a few sour moments – a territorial male, a drunken comment (soon rebuked) that’s sort of homophobic – these are mildly pleasant people to hang with.
5) More streaming. Amazon Prime has “Don’t Make Me Go,” with John Cho as a dad on a pivotal road trip with his teen daughter. Netflix debuts “Persuasion,” based on Jane Austen’s novel; Dakota Johnson stars. On Thursday, Netflix launched a series based on the “Resident Evil” horror films; also, two non-fiction shows started: HBO Max has a dating show, “FBOY Island”; Hulu has a three-part look at scandals that felled the CEO of Victoria’s Secret.
