Agents, Superheroes, Dinosaurs, Super cop and IT support. This is your weekend tv


It’s the weeeeekkkkkeeennndddd…

OK, sorry. I’m just going to go back to the server room. Its over here. But I’m taking the television with me.  Of course I am, else I’d miss the last ever IT Crowd.

Channel 4. 9pm. A whole hour of Roy, Jen and Ross, plus special guests. It could be awful (not possible, surely?), but then its following Agents of Shield (C4 8pm) so who knows. Basically channel four is the choice for the evening.

And when that is done, The Punisher (2004) is on Channel five at 10pm. Based on the Marvel comic of the same name, this version stars Thomas Jane, John Travolta, Will Patton, Rebecca Romijn and Roy Scheider

I’m also told I should take a look in on 5USA, and the series Person Of Interest. Its at Midnight. (12am).

Saturday I’m sticking with the 4 franchise and suggesting Film4 for your family viewing, with Eddie Murphy in Meet Dave (2008) at 5.15pm, followed by My Super Ex-Girlfriend (Luke Wilson, Uma Thurman and Eddie Izzard) at 7.05pm. 10.55pm sees the classic Alien (1979). But maybe not bedtime viewing, eh?

Sunday is when Channel 5 should rule your daytime with 3.40pm Close Encounters of the Third Kind: the directors cut (1977) at 3.40pm and Superman (1978) at 6.20pm. Alternatively you could choose another classic over on ITV2 The Lost world: Jurassic Park (1997) is on at 2.10pm instead.

To take you out of the weekend, assuming that you don’t have to get up super early on Monday, our last Channel 5 choice is the 1994 romp Time Cop. The line up includes Jean-Claude Van Damme, Ron Silver, Bruce McGill and Mia Sara. Its on at 11.25pm. Have at it, Monday!
