NBC gets into the TV binge-watching game on Thursday with its new David Duchovny series “Aquarius.” The 13-episode miniseries is set in 1967 and has Duchovny as an LAPD detective tracking a runaway teenager who has gotten herself tangled up with the Charles Manson cult. After the show’s 2-hour premiere at 9 p.m., all 13 episodes will be available on NBC.com, the NBC smartphone app and Video on Demand for four weeks. Meanwhile, episodes will continue to air on NBC each Thursday night for those happy to watch week to week.

▪ NBC also debuts a new “man vs. nature” reality series on Monday – and when they say “man,” that’s exactly what they mean. On “The Island” (10 p.m.), 14 men are put on a deserted island without even the most basic tools of their normal lives. The show hopes to distinguish itself from all the others by skipping the competitions, games and eliminations (and the women!), and focusing on which Real Man Who Has Something To Prove can survive. Hosted by Bear Grylls.
