Wednesday on TV: 'Broadchurch' ends brilliantly; Colton goes crazy on 'Survivor'
Season 1 of Broadchurch (8 p.m., BBC America) comes to an end and Danny's killer is revealed - but that's not the end of the story.
If this was an American drama, solving the crime would be the end of the story. But this is a British drama, so the revelation comes rather early in the episode and then the narrative deals with the aftermath.
It's shattering stuff. A great show that will stick in your mind long after it's over.
Over on Survivor (7 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2) - where Utahns Tyson Apostol and Rachel Foulger are competing - all those crocodile tears Colton shed last week are proven to be just that as he returns to his nasty, mean-spirited, manipulative ways.<
