Marley Saturday at 9 p.m., VH1
This documentary, which won enthusiastic reviews, was made in cooperation with Bob Marley’s family. It tracks the king of reggae from his 1945 birth, the son of an 18-year-old Jamaican woman and a 60-year-old white captain in the British Royal Marines, to his death from cancer in 1981. In between, director Kevin Macdonald looks at his rise to global prominence, his music, and his political fearlessness. The movie features archival footage and new interviews, not only with the Marleys but with his school teacher, a studio janitor, and the nurse at his death bed.
Breaking Bad Sunday at 10 p.m., AMC
I admire the imagination Vince Gilligan is bringing to the plot developments this season. The magnet in the premiere and Walt’s idea last week to cook meth in homes that are being exterminated — both were funny, clever twists. Of course they push the bounds of realism; the premise of the entire show does. Those who’ve complained about believability this season need to remember that. “Breaking Bad” remains suspense and family drama of the highest order. On Sunday, Walt (Bryan Cranston, above) marks a year since his diagnosis.
