Monday, April 18



Chuck (NBC) 8 p.m. - "Chuck Versus the Wedding Planner"

When Chuck and Sarah are swindled out of their wedding money, they turn to the best con artist Sarah knows—her father (Gary Cole). Meanwhile, Morgan and Alex decide it's time for Casey to tell Alex's mother he's alive. Awkward!

Here's a preview:


Doctor Who (BBC America) 9 p.m. - "The Impossible Astronaut"

Season-six premieres! Doctor Who's back! Yay! In the first part of the two-part premiere, the Doctor, Amy and Rory hit America for an adventure that takes them to the Utah desert and the Oval Office in 1969.

Here's a look:


Roadkill (Syfy) 9 p.m.

In this Syfy film, a group of friends traveling across Ireland accidentally cause the death of an old gypsy woman, and they get cursed with a violent death via a flying beast. Don't you just hate when that happens? The flick stars Stephen Rea and Eliza Bennett.

Here's a sneak peek:




Sunday, April 24



Game of Thrones (HBO) 9 p.m. - "The Kingsroad"

You've got to admit, this series had an awesome start. In the second episode, Ned heads south with his daughters with plans to take his place in the King's court. Elsewhere, Catelyn stays home, hoping that Bran will recover. Meanwhile, Daenerys tries to figure out how to please her new husband and gets some advice on the subject, and Jon Snow goes north in an attempt to join the Night Watch.
