SPRING IS HERE! After the past year of the pandemic things are still a jumbled mess for most people. With only minor pockets of the old realty popping up. However, TV seems to have finally begun to figure this whole thing out and we are getting shows more on the regular. Let’s enjoy the entertainment we have and not worry about about what was.
How did we get to April? Time is so strange lately. What have you enjoyed on TV from the past 3 months? And what are you looking forward to this in April? Shall we get into a new month with new #SetTheVCR picks?Sammy Younan

Independent Lens: Til Kingdom Come (
Nailed It: Double Trouble (Anytime / Netflix) – Ever since Candice got me into this show I have been a big fan and supporter of it. The show’s host Nicole Beyers is just so much fun and makes even these terrible bakers feel good about what they are doing each episode. It’s part of the new breed of competition shows that celebrate the attempt over the results. Plus some of these trainwreck baking are pretty impressive on just how bad they really are. (Mr. Green)

Supergirl (9pm / CW) – SERIES PREMIERE! As Supergirl returns it also marks for the last time as this is the finale season of the show. Kara and the crew are battling the usual menagerie of villains and of course still dealing with Jon Cryer’s Lex Luthor. I’m glad they get to have this final season to finish telling the story they started six years ago. hopefully, fans of the show get everything they want from this finale run of episodes. (Mr. Green)
Wednesday, March 31
Resident Alien (10pm / Syfy Channel) – The 10th Resident Alien episode concludes Season 1 tonight. Thankfully it’s been renewed for a second season in March. In comics, the debate is often, do you read/buy the monthlies or wait for the trade? What about TV shows? Do you wait for the whole season or do you watch weekly? It’s been strange to watch the Disney+ MCU TV shows weekly; even though that’s how I grew up to go back to that is strange. Not that I binge either: it’s just nice to know you have all the episodes and you can watch em at your leisure; you dictate the pace. That’s typically my strategy. (The Stand was added to Prime Video on March 19: 9 episodes and I finished it on March 27. It’s all there and not going anywhere: it’s a comforting feeling.) (Sammy)
Mr. Green’s Pick of the Week
Resident Alien (10pm / SyFy) – SEASON FINALE! It’s good to see Sammy finally get on board with the current best show on TV. The season has been a roller coaster ride of hilarity. Now the noose is tightening around Harry’s neck as the Government knows where he is and how to get to him. Plus even more of the characters are finding out more of Harry’s secrets. The only bad thing about tonight is knowing that I have to wait a year for the show to return for the already confirmed season 2. I really hope Terry O’Quinn returns his cameo appearance last episode was a lot of fun. (Mr. Green)

Sammy’s Pick of the Week
Creepshow (3 a
The Moody’s (9pm / FOX) – SEASON PREMEIRE! When The Moody’s first aired as a special a few years back I really enjoyed it. Since then I have wanted it to come back and now finally after many years I get my wish it’s an April Fool’s Day miracle! Dennis Leary & Elizabeth Perkins are the head of the family of misfits who are going through a lot in their lives as they try to get back on track and move forward, by moving back in with their parents. If this season is anything like the first one it’s going to be a solid run of hilarity each week. I can not wait. (Mr. Green)

WeWork: Or the Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn (
Concrete Cowboy (3am / Netflix) – I’ve been hearing a lot about this film since it was announced that Stranger Things star Caleb McLaughlin was going to be starring in it. Then to find out that Idris Elba was also in it and many more the energy began to rise. Then the pandemic hit and what would have been a theatre release and Oscar bait kept getting pushed around like so many other films. Now the world will get to see what the hype was about. The film looks to be a potential breakout role for Caleb and make him the one Stranger Things cast member to become a superstar over the next few years. (Mr. Green)
Saturday, April 3
2021 NCAA Basketball Tournament (
Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Anytime / Disney+) – After the first episode, I was lukewarm on this show. After episode two, I have been re-energized with Sam & Bucky, finally interacting for the running time. If this energy and style keep up, it will be the show I was expecting for the last few months before it dropped on Disney+. Plus, I’m all in for the serious Nick Miller/Tran energy going on in Bucky’s storyline. (Mr. Green)
Sunday, April 4
The Snyder Make The Cut (
Gangs of London (10pm / AMC) – SERIES PREMIERE! Finally, after a year since its BBC premiere, North America finally gets to see what the show is all about. The son of a gangster looks for his father’s killer and wages a bloody war on all in his path to the truth. Watching the trailer again it’s clear this is not the life for me but I can enjoy watching some bad-ass people do horrible things to each other in entertainment. Getting my popcorn and a cozy blanket to get ready for some of the old ultra-violence. (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!
