Monday is Memorial Day. That means a few things, most importantly that you should take the opportunity to thank the veterans in your life for their service. (NOTE: Matt and the SB Nation gang made a great video that you should check out.) It also means that things could be a little light around here. Expect a “Game of Thrones” recap and maybe a What’s On Tonight, but unless something huge happens (“NBC SHOOTS DAN HARMON AND 20 BABY KITTENS TO THE MOON”), we’re taking the day off, too. I recommend checking out Entertainment Weekly’s helpful list of all the marathons this weekend. Cinemax is running all of the Naked Gun, Robocop, and Major League movies back-to-back. This is an incredibly direct route to my heart.
Mad Men (AMC, Sunday) – Just once I want there to be an entire episode of the show where all the guys in the office chase Joan around in fast-forward while the Benny Hill theme plays. I don’t ask much.
Game of Thrones (HBO, Sunday) – From TV Guide: “The Lannisters’ control of King’s Landing is in peril when Stannis’ fleet launches an all-out assault.” YO. YES. Every show should have the phrase “all-out assault” in their episode description. Hmm, maybe I do kinda ask a lot.
Veep (HBO, Sunday) – I don’t know if you all realize this, but “Veep” is awesome. A three-day weekend would be a great time to get caught up if you’re behind.
The Firm (NBC, Saturday) – NBC is airing two brand new episodes of this show the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. This is not a vote of confidence. No, it is not.
Take us home, Ray.
