The Honorable Woman (10pm, Sundance ) - This new 8-episode miniseries features Maggie Gyllenhaal as the Anglo-Israeli daughter of an assassinated Zionist arms dealer who seeks to legitimize their business. The first episode involves the murder of a Palestinian businessman who was closely connected to the family enterprise. It’s a bit of a chore to get through, but if you can tough it out for a few episodes, you’ll get into it. And Gyllenhaal is really good (but no surprises there).
