Amazon premieres the third season of its Emmy winner Transparent tomorrow. It remains a marvelous show, full of great performances and imagery, though the different threads of season 3 don't tie together at the end quite as effective as the first two years did.

4 things to know about Fox's new baseball drama 'Pitch'

Does the drama about the first woman in MLB win right out of the gate?

Fox PR promised to make the second and third episodes of Pitch available to critics in advance of tonight's premiere, but something fell through and they're not coming until next week. Since I prefer having more material to judge before writing a review when possible, I'm going to hold off on a more elaborate piece on the show, and instead tell you four things about the pilot of a show about the first woman (Kylie Bunbury) to play Major League Baseball:
