It's a busy TV week, but one event rises above them all: The end of MythBusters after years of nerdy fun. Plus Agent Carter's season finale, the return of Gotham, and more!

Check out the week in TV below. What's on your watchlist?


Gotham (FOX) Monday, 8 p.m. - "Rise of the Villains: Mr Freeze"

Though the relationship between Gotham's version of Bruce Wayne and the rest of its characters is often a matter of debate, it's still fun to see the show introduce villain after villain into the mix, and this week we hit another level with Mr. Freeze. In the beginning, this show was a gritty crime drama that relied less on comic-book tropes and more on what would be believabe. Now it's getting more ambitious, and that's exciting. Check out a preview below.

Agent Carter (ABC) Tuesday, 9 p.m. - "Hollywood Ending"

Season finale! - it's been more than two weeks since we heard that Agent Carter star Hayley Atwell was booked for a new pilot at ABC, and we still don't know what that means for Agent Carter. Naturally, stars can juggle TV series, and they have before, but Atwell carries this series, it's one of Marvel's most interesting projects, and we still don't know if it will be around for Season 3. This week's finale, which also sets up more Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the broadcast schedule, might help us find out.

 A Year In Space (PBS) Wednesday, 8 p.m.

Documentary Special! - If you're  more interested in the scientific part of science fiction this week, check out this miniseries starring astronaut Scott Kelly and his twin brother Mark. Scott's about to fall back to Earth after a full year on the International Space Station, and this documentary series will examine just how that extreme length of time in orbit affected him and his family. It's a fascinating case study in human spaceflight and could very well set the stage for how we view our first Mars mission.

MythBusters (Discovery) Saturday, 8 p.m. - "The Grand Finale" and "The Reunion"

Series finale! - Well, this is it! We talked about the penultimate episode of MythBusters last week, but this week is the Real Deal. This is the official end of the one of the nerdiest shows ever to be on television, and it's all capped off with two hours of programming, complete with a reunion special that will feature former co-stars returning to the fold. So, let's all get ready to cry on Saturday.

Once Upon a Time (ABC) Sunday, 8 p.m. - "Souls of the Departed"

100 Episodes! - Though we're still wondering just how much ABC's fairy-tale series owes to the comic-book phenomenon Fables, the TV show has nonetheless become a phenomenon of its own. This week we hit 100 episodes, and the series just keeps trying new things as many of the principal characters are set to enter the Underworld. Get ready for more Disney fun.
