Consider the list below a tip sheet to get you going on the fall TV season. Each of the six shows has something of note to offer, and some have the potential to be season (or beyond) standouts. Happy viewing, and the snacks are on you.

HBO's My Brilliant Friend Adaptation Should Have Been an Anime - via Vulture

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly how director Saverio Costanzo’s adaptation fails through the language barrier (the series is entirely in Italian and Neapolitan dialect, and it was screened with both English and Italian subtitles). But I could sense the strain of putting the weight of the drama on two first-time child actors, Elisa Del Genio and Ludovica Nasti, who certainly look their parts but don’t quite have the unguardedness suggested by Ferrante’s deeply relatable account of their childhood. Del Genio and Nasti are later replaced by older actors for subsequent episodes, which did not screen at the Venice Film Festival, but Costanzo’s direction is so ponderous and slow that I have to wonder how much of a difference it would make. There’s a mechanical quality to these early episodes, which is certainly not a word you want associated with an adaptation of Ferrante.

Im Zentrum steht Elena Greco, eine ältere Dame, deren beste Freundin Raffaella "Lila" Cerullo plötzlich spurlos verschwindet. So setzt sich Elena an ihren Computer und beginnt die Geschichte ihrer Freundschaft aufzuschreiben, die 1950 bereits in der Grundschule begann. Die Geschichte umfasst 60 Jahre und spielt im gefährlichen und reizvollen Neapel. Doch genauso vielschichtig und ambivalent wie die Metropole könnte auch Lila sein.
