Series premieres slow down as the broadcast networks move into the November sweeps period, favoring new episodes over new shows for most of the month. But this is November 2018 we’re talking about, so the streaming services are still pumping fresh content into your feeds, beginning with the Amazon thriller that drops an Oscar winner into the jittery compositions of a Peak TV maverick.

Photographs of the scene show thousands of raw beef roasts loosed from their boxes and strewn about the grass. (Author’s note: This accident did occur in August, but was too late to make our August overturned trucks round-up. Plus, I figured you’d want to know about the tragic beef incident either way.) Bell peppers: A truck transporting red bell peppers spilled its cargo Sept. 7 near Santa Paula, California in an accident local news accounts incorrectly referred to as both “hot” and “spicy.” Los Angeles’ NBC-4 reports traffic was cut off near Telegraph and Briggs roads as a crane worked to right the vehicle. … [Read more...] about This month in overturned trucks: Beef roasts, cheese, dog food
