Sammy’s Pick of the Week
TSN Doc Collection (
Cannonball (10pm / NBC) – WWE Superstar Mike “The Miz” Mizanin hosts a competition featuring people from across America. They face off for the chance to win a $10,000 cash prize. This looks dumb, ridiculous and many other adjectives about what you will see. Still, sometimes we just gotta have fun, even the dumb kind. Besides, there aren’t a plethora of options these days so take what you can get while you can. (Mr. Green)
Tuesday, June 30
George Lopez: We’ll Do It For Half (
DC’s Stargirl (8pm / CW) – After last week’s disastrous run-in with Gamemaster and Tigress the newly reformed JSA needs some training after they were taught a valuable lesson regarding their abilities and how little they actually know about how to use them in a tactical combat setting. Pat tries to teach Courtney, Yolanda, Beth and Rick the importance of teamwork; as the school prepares for homecoming. It took 6 episodes to get here hopefully it speeds a little up now. (Mr. Green)
Wednesday, July 1
Unsolved Mysteries (
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (10pm / Channel) – After blowing its cover and damaging the Zephyr in the process, the team must scramble to rescue Mack’s parents, save S.H.I.E.L.D. from a chronicom infestation and fix the ship. Enjoying the last season of the show a wild ride that has upped its game for twists and turns. (Mr. Green)
Thursday, July 2
Warrior Nun (
Mr. Green’s Pick of the Week
Warrior Nun (3am / Netflix) – I will be talking about this on this week’s episode of Geek Hard on Friday in more detail. However, this show looks to be a ton of fun and it drops on the day after I have off when I could have just sat back and enjoyed it for an entire binge session. Still looking forward to checking it out as it ticks a lot of my boxes when it comes to TV shows that will entertain me. Demon-hunting warrior nuns?! COME ON! This should be a blast! (Mr. Green)
Friday, July 3
Ford v Ferrari (
Desperados (3am / Netflix) – Starring Nasim Pedrad and Lamorne Morris who were great together on New Girl in its final seasons are back together in this comedy about romance going so wrong after a first date. Nasim’s character leaves the world’s worst needy/angry voicemail for her date who was in an accident and hasn’t checked his phone yet. So, like any rational person, she jumps on a plane to try and erase the message before he hears it. Yup, totally normal. It should be funny if it’s anything close to what this duo was able to do on New Girl. (Mr. Green)
Saturday, July 4
Independence Day (Anytime / Crave) – It’s July 4th, of course, I’m recommending this movie. And if you don’t have access to Crave you can always rent it from Apple or Google if you don’t have a copy of the DVD or Blu-ray. It’s quite fitting on this day but also it actually feels kinda quaint that this was 1997’s worst-case scenario for the world. Well 1997, you better sit down with 2020 learn what a disaster really looks like. (Mr. Green)
Sunday, July 5
Snowpiercer (9pm / TNT) – Revolution has finally come. The “Tailies” are looking for control and will fight the bloody fight they need to secure the train for all passengers aboard the Snowpiercer, 1001 cars long. I got to see the season just before it aired for my review of it back when it started. Now as we move toward the season 1 finale you are seeing what I have been talking about. A show that takes the original concept and expands it some really interesting ways that the movie couldn’t. While deviating from the comic source as well but it still manages to capture its heart. It’s a really great show to watch. (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!
