Wednesday TV: Monsters Can’t Get Along

The pandemic won’t be around forever, and neither will major box office premieres via streaming services. But they’re still happening big time tonight, with the bow of the big screen “Godzilla vs. Kong” (HBO Max, streaming), in which moviedom’s famous creatures battle it out. Adam Wingard’s big budget film, which has already grossed $123 million worldwide, includes a human cast that includes Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry and Kyle Chandler. Music is by Junkie XL. 

The film is a sequel to both the 2019 “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” and 2017’s “Kong: Skull Island,” but Turner Classic Movies goes much further back for earlier sources for examples with the1956 “Godzilla: King of the Monsters!” (8 p.m.), the original 1933 “King Kong” (9:30 p.m.), plus the 1964 “Godzilla vs. The Thing” (11:30 p.m.), the 1933 “The Son of Kong” (1:15 a.m.), the 1974 “Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla” (2:45 a.m.) and, from 1958,  “Rodan” (4:15 a.m.). 

Vanishing species have an effect on the planet and the humans left behind, David Attenborough argues in the special “Extinction — The Facts” (PBS, 8 p.m.).

You think the paranormal only lives in North America? Another angle comes from the new series “Haunted: Latin America” (Netflix, streaming). 

Korea has become a hotbed of popular music and now it has its own series, “K-Pop Evolution” (YouTube, streaming). 

Archie is caught off guard on parent-teacher night at “Riverdale” (CW, 8 p.m.).
