The beast in me
“Legacies” may be a spinoff of “The Vampire Diaries,” but it seems to get as much inspiration from the “Harry Potter” and “X-Men” franchises. Setting the action in the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted is a brilliant move, forcing both new and familiar characters to strike a balance between dating, homework and the urge to transform into a werewolf.

Better never than late
For a while it seemed the TV version of “Heathers” would never see the light of day. Originally created for Comedy Central, the show moved over to the Paramount Network, where it sat on the shelf in the wake of a school shooting in Parkland, Fla. Now it’s hitting the air as a five-part miniseries with major edits. Was it worth the wait? The answer is a decisive no. A show that hinges on bullying

In a gentler world, “Super Cats” would take you behind the scenes of that cute kitty playing piano on YouTube. Instead, this “Nature” miniseries is the latest documentary to use high-tech cameras to capture predators tracking down their prey in the wild. F. Murray Abraham, who won an Oscar for playing Mozart’s tormentor in “Amadeus,” seems a little too delighted to narrate the action.

Going to the dogs
If you’re more of a dog person, check out “The American Humane Hero Dog Awards,” hosted by Beth Stern and James Denton, the Chanhassen resident who probably still gets recognized for his role in “Desperate Housewives.” Human presenters include Danielle Fishel, Carrie Ann Inaba, Naomi Judd and Denise Richards.

I don’t know how this one slipped past me: Durham’s Crystal Mangum was the subject of a “Snapped” episode on the Oxygen network earlier this month.
Mangum, of course, was the dancer at the center of the Duke Lacrosse scandal from 2006. But “Snapped” is primarily concerned with her 2013 conviction for the murder of her roommate and boyfriend Reginald Daye, who Mangum stabbed in 2011.
The episode features news footage and interviews with Durham Police Department crime scene specialist Al Brown, WRAL crime reporter Amanda Lamb, Raleigh attorney Joseph Cheshire V, friends and family members of Mangum and Daye, and others.
The episode aired on Oct. 7 and has been in reruns, so you can still catch it on TV. But if you can’t wait for the rerun to roll back around, you can watch online at Oxygen. It looks like it will be available online
