The Cold Lands (NR)
When his fiercely self-reliant mother dies unexpectedly, eleven-year-old Atticus is wary of the authorities and flees deep into the forests of his Catskills home. His sheltered, off-the-grid childhood is over, and a new life on the move has begun. As Atticus wanders the woods in a daze, relying on whatever food and shelter he can find, the line between reality and fantasy begins to blur. 

Mr. Selfridge (NR)
The story of American entrepreneur Harry Gordon Selfridge, the colorful and visionary founder of Selfridge's, London's lavish department store. Pioneering and reckless, Selfridge created a theater of retail for early 1900s Londoners where any topic or trend that was new, exciting, entertaining--or sometimes just eccentric--was showcased. 

Mr. Selfridge : Season Two (NR)
Five years after Selfridge's first opens its doors, Europe is on the brink of war and London is enjoying one last defiant period of decadence. Having rocked the retail world with his pioneering new store, Harry Selfridge now has his sights set on rebuilding his family life. His desperate attempts to win back estranged wife Rose are hindered by her friendship with Delphine Day, the extravagant owner of a fashionable nightclub. 

The Normal Heart (TV-MA)
An unflinching look at the nation's sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fight to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial at the onset of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s.

Rosemary's Baby (NR)
A young married couple moves to Paris with hopes of leaving their past behind. After a series of unfortunate events, Rosemary and Guy Woodhouse are presented with an offer they can't refuse--an apartment at the most prestigious address in the city. They soon realize it comes with a haunted past, and an immeasurable price.

The Walking Dead : The Complete Fourth Season (NR)
Rick and the group of survivors foster a thriving community in the safe haven of the prison. This is short-lived as the group loses everything, their home, family, and friends to the threat of the walkers, outside threats and the hidden dangers brewing inside the fences. The group of survivors are broken apart and sent on divergent paths, unsure of everyone else's fate as they are exposed to new dangers, new enemies, and heartbreaking choices.
