    Critic’s corner: What’s on TV Monday night

    BBC America

    Dangerman: The Incredible Mr. Goodwin  10 p.m., BBC America

    This scary, fascinating, and sometimes emotional new series about daredevil Jonathan Goodwin and the risks he takes — from knife-throwing tricks to dangling from a helicopter to holding a live scorpion in his mouth while someone slaps him — definitely makes it clear that these are “don’t try this at home” propositions. Part Evel Knievel, part P.T. Barnum, part David Copperfield, “Dangerman” shows both the lengthy preparation and precise execution of each stunt. Admirably, it does not edit out when Goodwin fails to achieve his goal. Including footage of his family — his wife and mother of his baby daughter — heightens the drama.

    POV: Neurotypical 10 p.m., WGBH


    This documentary explores the world of the autism spectrum and how wide it can be from the point of view of people with autism, including a 4-year-old girl, a teenage boy, and an adult woman. Along with parents and loved ones, the film’s subjects discuss the variety of their experiences, their self-perceptions and the way the world at large sees them.
