Lego Star Wars (Cartoon Network, Friday) — Ummm, is it wrong that I think this looks kinda good? I’ve put a preview for it at the bottom of the post — it’s like a more serious version of the “Robot Chicken” spoofs, but with LEGO characters. Shut up, I played with LEGO a lot growing up.
Torchwood: Miracle Day (Starz, Friday) — Yes, I’m deliberately tailoring this weekend preview to win the approval of geeks. Acknowledge my pandering!
Attack of the Show (G4, Friday) — This is the one time of year where “AotS” is actually relevant: when it reports from Comic-Con in San Diego.
Breaking Bad (AMC, Sunday) — *breathes into paper bag*
NTSF:SD:SUV:: (Adult Swim, Sunday) — I neglected to mention that the series premiere of this crime procedural spoof — and logical companion to “Children’s Hospital” — aired last night, so I’m putting this here with the hope that I remember to DVR one of the two replays on Sunday night.
Same Name (CBS, Sunday) — Series premiere. Celebrities meet people who have the same (or almost same) name. In the premiere, David Hasselhoff meets Texas landscaper David Haseloff.
The Hooters 2011 International Swimsuit Pageant (Spike, Friday) — Important.
Top Gear (History, Sunday) — Series premiere. This is the American version, with those guys. You know, whatstheirfaces.
Entourage (HBO, Sunday) — Season premiere. My, but it feels good to bury this at the bottom of the post. ICYMI: the ten douchiest moments in “Entourage” history. I also enjoyed Videogum’s excellent response to the B.S. blind item about the “Entourage” cast saving a girl from being raped.
