What’s On Tonight: Kurt Sutter’s ‘The Bastard Executioner’ Debuts On FX

The Bastard Executioner (FX, 10 p.m.) — Kurt Sutter’s period drama gets its time in the spotlight tonight. The series premiere sees Wilkin Brattle, a former knight for King Edward I, try his hand at farming — and find he misses killing people too much to ever be happy plowing potatoes. Since this is Sutter, expect lots of blood, violence and death — you know, all of the things we cherish most in truly great TV shows. “The Obvious Choice”

Things probably don’t work out for the homo sapien side.
