This weekend we find ourselves saying goodbye for another half a year or so to easily the best show on television right now. Breaking Bad has its season finale this Sunday, despite offering up two previous episodes that easily could have been a finale unto themselves. What the hell are these writers going to do to top the crazy ending from two weeks ago, or the insanely tense stand-off between Walt and Gus last week? Dunno, but I can't wait to find out!
Apart from a fairly dominating schedule of sporting events--the usual footballings, coupled with the beginning of the NHL season and the MLB playoffs--we have a number of new episodes of decent television programs, as well as a couple of TV movies guarantees to leave you slack-jawed by description alone.
What to Watch This Weekend: October 7, 2011
Friday at 9PM - FOX - Two bullies end up dead, but their rapid rate of decomposition leads the gang to think something strange is amiss. Really? On this show? Something strange? Nooooo...
Friday at 9PM - CW - The dudes hunt a demon who is eating people's brains. Finally, an episode of Supernatural that sounds like something I might watch.
Friday at 10PM - SyFy - Season Premiere. Yes, we somehow have a fourth season of this ridiculous show, despite the fact that it's kind of awful, and boasts production values that make Torchwood look like a Spielberg production. Who are you people that are watching this?
Saturday at 9PM - SyFy - A giant, mutated root system is destroying the world, or something, in this SyFy original movie. Not even kidding. A mutated root system. Killer roots. This is happening.
Sunday at 10PM - AMC - What more do I even need to say here? I already know you're watching this, so watch it!
|The Making of South Park: Six Days to Air|
Sunday at 10PM - Comedy Central - If you've ever wondered what the creative process is for an episode of South Park, this hour-long doc ought to do the trick.
Sunday at 9PM - HBO - Alcohol delivery delays! Loneliness! Politics! Depression! All this and more, on another exciting episode of Boardwalk Empire!
Sunday at 9PM - Showtime - A man of the cloth with a former criminal background is called in to help the cops on a case, but Dexter suspects he's not quite what he seems to be. That, of course, means he's a serial killer. Stupid revolving premise! Spoils it every time!
Sunday at 10PM - Showtime - Okay, so who watched this and/or liked it? Dying to know if this show is something that actually warrants a serialized format.
Sunday at 10PM - ABC - The ladies fly to Berlin, and of course have to smuggle a poor woman out of East Germany. Wait, what? What's all this now? Where are the free-wheeling sexy times I was promised?!?
|Keeping Up With the Kardashians|
Sunday at 10PM - E! - I know, I know, but I just had to include this episode description. "Kim announces she wants to be married right away, which forces her mom to move up her scheduled plastic surgery." If that description doesn't completely sum up everything about this show's inherent shittiness, I don't know what would.
|Betrayed at 17|
Sunday at 8PM - Lifetime - A young girl's life is ruined when she's caught on tape having sex with her high school boyfriend! Now mom is out for revenge! Oh Lifetime, you are just the best.
