Leprechaun Returns (Syfy /
The Case Against Adnan Syed (9pm / HBO) – I was a huge fan of the original season Serial where they delved into Adnan’s case. While that show has it’s own issues this case continues to be fascinating to many around the world. This 4-part HBO documentary series explores the case to give it their own spin on the story. If you like true crime then this is especially for you. (Mr. Green)

Black Lightning (9pm / CW) – FINALE! Season 2 comes to close as the stakes get ever higher for our heroes. This show continues to put out the typical CW fare but it continues to impress me with how much it makes me care for the characters even with some of the CW tropes that are present. No worries about it coming back next season as The CW already renewed it for next year. (Mr. Green)

Nothing! – Earlier this week I recommended a Leprechaun movie so I won’t be mean and double down by recommending Step Up: High Water: Season 2 which premieres on YouTube today. Unlike Mr. Green who confidently suggests Pretty Little Lairs. Safe to say who is your pretty little friend this week huh? (Sammy)
Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists (

March Madness (Many / Various) – NCAA college basketball is the appetizer for the NBA playoffs next month (as well as the trailer for next season’s NBA in the drafts.) The 68-team single-elimination tournament is 67 games over 19 days, hence the nickname March Madness. That link will take you to all the dates and times for the tournament. Which sadly is not to the death… do we do that anymore? (Sammy)

Highway Men (Netflix) – Old timey Triple Frontier. Netflix gives us ruckus with
The Dirt (
Saturday, March 23
Nothing – It’s Saturday night…it should be warmer so go out there and shake what ya mamma gave you. (Sammy)
The Mummy (7pm / AMC) – This movie is a ton of fun. Since there is usually nothing on Saturdays this is your best choice. Brendan Fraser before his Hollywood disappearance doing his squared-jawed best against Fleshy Imhotep! The franchise is diminishing returns as you go so watch this one and call it a night. (Mr. Green)
Well, there you go plenty of options for the week ahead. Enjoy yourself and watch responsibly.
If you’re gonna geek out, GEEK HARD!
