What to Watch podcast: Alan Tudyk's Resident Alien returns to Earth for season 2

·2 min read

Alan Tudyk is back for a new season of Syfy's Resident Alien, but this time, instead of trying to kill Earth's inhabitants, his character Harry — who's posing as a doctor — is trying to protect humans, especially his friend Asta.

Meanwhile, on the CW's Batwoman, as if Ryan's new romantic entanglement wasn't enough, the superhero is in a race against time after Poison Ivy and Poison Mary form a new alliance and plot to drown the industrial district of Gotham City. Plus, we offer some trivia about the infamous Poison Ivy.

And on the new comedy Astrid & Lilly Save the World, two high school friends are also monster hunters who accidentally open a portal to another dimension, unleashing all kinds of creepy creatures.

Plus, entertainment headlines — including Bravo firing Real House of Salt Lake City's Jennie, a new Percy Jackson adaptation getting the green light, and Disney responding to Peter Dinklage's criticism of a live-action Snow White and the Seven Dwarves remake starring West Side Story's Rachel Zegler.
