Tuesday TV: Uncovering More U.S. Nazis

Frontline NazisI sometimes worry about the reporter A.C. Thompson whose fearless work for ProPublica and “Frontline” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings) takes him to the heart of violent hate groups where he has uncovered names and faces involved in them. Tonight, in the wake of the synagogue bombing in Pittsburgh he connects the dots to look into the neo-Nazi group Atomwafen, which actively recruits inside the U.S. military, in a report called “Documenting Hate: New American Nazis.” His previous report from August, which led to multiple arrests, “Documenting Hate: Charlottesville,” follows at 10.

The new horror film “Sabrina” (Netflix, streaming), from Indonesian director Rocky Soraya,  is about a demonized doll who goes after a toymaker and his family. Not to be confused with the services recently launched “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” (Netflix, streaming).
