April 13 TV Picks: ‘Turn’ on AMC
TV picks for April 13, 2014, include “Turn” on AMC, “The Amazing Race” on CBS and “Revenge” on ABC.
The network’s zombies are on hiatus until October, so it might be time to dive into the world of Revolutionary War spies in this new series. It’s based on Alexander Rose’s book “Washington’s Spies” and stars Jamie Bell (“Billy Elliott”) as a Long Island farmer who joins the Culper Ring. Last week’s premiere was complex, involving and looked gorgeous (the cinematography and design elements are first-rate). Bring on some more. 9 p.m. Sunday, April 13, on AMC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
