Silicon Valley (Anyti
Batwoman (8pm / CW) – Crisis on Infinite Earths Part Two giving us a followup to the previous nights Supergirl episode which was the first of the Crisis Event Series. The group of heroes uses Ray’s invention to track new recruits to help save the universe; Iris, Clark and Lois search for a mysterious Kryptonian; Kate and Kara search for Bruce Wayne; Lex Luthor returns. It’s going to be a jam-packed series. Getting to see some of the cameos by previous DC superheroes is going to be so much fun. As Sammy likes to say there is going to be a lot of “Ruckus!” with this event. (Mr. Green)
Drake’s Plan (Anyti
The Flash (8pm / CW) – Crisis on Infinite Earths Part Three Pariah enlists Black Lightning to help stop the Anti-Monitor; Flash-90 shares what he learned from his battle in Elseworlds; with the help of Black Lightning, Barry, Cisco and Killer Frost come up with a plan that could save them all. Now comes the really sad part. This is the last episode of the event series until the New Year with Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow episodes not airing until then. So keep those spirits bright as you forge through the rest of the holidays knowing in just a few short weeks the conclusion will happen. (Mr. Green)
Belichick & Saban: The Art of Coaching (Anyti
“We’re scared for different reasons.
I’m scared of what I won’t become
& you’re scared of what I could become.
I won’t let myself end where I started,
I won’t let myself finish where I began.”
That’s exactly what these 2 men, these 2 coaches have done. That Jordan commercial’s tagline has Become Legendary. Indeed. (Sammy)
The Goldbergs (8pm / ABC) – In typical Beverly fashion, the holidays are a giant competition between her and the Kremps. Previously she reinvented Hanunkah to resemble Christmas, so knowing this time out it’s going to be the a battle of holiday cards I have high hopes. She only has one speed and it is Mach 3 in these situations. ’80s Christmas fun is going to be had. (Mr. Green)
Toy Story That Time Forgot (8:30pm / ABC) – This was a great addition to the Christmas Special rotation with the original cast coming to do the voices for it. Much shenanigans are to be had as the gang has to reeducate some new Christmas gift toys that still think they are really their characters. This is a fun special and I highly recommend it. (Mr. Green)
6 Underground (3 am / Netflix) – Sweet Josh Groban!! 6 Underground is part of a complete ruckus meal with witness the fitness chicks, a sports car chase, guns, death-defying leaps, waterfall crashing penthouses and it’s right before Christmas on Netflix yo!! And YES! How did we get so lucky on Friday the 13th? More balls to the wall ruckus from Michael Bay; we all know the routine by now. (Like why did Netflix release Marriage Story but not this one?!) (Sammy)
The Mandalorian (3am / Disney+) – Why are you not watching this?! It’s so good every week. Regardless if you are a Star Wars fan or not. Get on it. Plus now we are in the home stretch for the series as there are only a few episodes left to drop. Plus we have this new mystery figure from the last episode that might be hunting The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda. Like I said, soooo good! (Mr. Green)
Frosty the Snowman (9pm / CBS) – The animated adaptation of Romeo Muller’s story narrated by Jimmy Durante. It has always been and will be a Christmas Special staple in my rotation to watch each year. Like all classic Christmas Specials, it can be a little hokey at times but it still if great to watch especially with the kids. (Mr. Green)
Mel Brooks: Unwrapped (Anyti
Watchmen (9pm / HBO) – Season Finale! Everything ends for real this time. Is what they are saying about this final episode of the season. The reaction has been so positive that HBO is looking toward another season so don’t worry. They need something to replace Game of Thrones. The show continues to be great each week and is really hitting on some interesting and important ideas about heroes, history, race and responsibilities. Also, I’m still very happy that this ties directly into the comics and not Snyder’s lacklustre movie. (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!
