Tonight on the Tube: Shrek and Cop Drama Reruns

by Jason the TVaholic on September 24, 2005

in Tonight on the Tube

Saturdays are not great for a TVaholic. Commercial interrupted movies and crime time replays abound. Good thing I have a few recordings from earlier in the week yet to watch.

Prime Picks

Shrek (NBC): Two hours of the funny animated adventures of and Ogre and his ass, I mean Donkey.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (NBC): Repeat episode where Stabler and Fin look into the case of a raped and then murdered. The leading suspects are a group of teens thought to be acting out scenes from a video game.

Solid Selections

Cold Case (CBS): On tonight’s repeat, bones are discovered at a now closed down prison which was the scene of a deadly fight and murder 36 years ago.

Without a Trace (CBS): In the second hour we find a repeat episode where they begin a frantic search for a woman and her kids after the yacht they were on is found in New York Harbor with no one but the dead captain aboard.

48 Hours Mystery (CBS): Watch the mystery unfold at a trial of an accused serial killer when it is interrupted by one of the assumed victims showing up.

Other Options

Catch Me If You Can (ABC): Three commercially interrupted hours of fun watching an FBI agent played by Tom Hanks go after Frank Abagnale Jr. playerd by Leonardo DiCaprio who is a con man and forger that takes a variety of identities.

Cable Choices

The Showbiz Show with David Spade (Comedy Channel): A half-hour of David Spade skewering celebrities and such. Well 22-minutes if there were no commercials.

Path of Destruction (Sci-Fi): Some good old-fashioned B-movie science fiction with self-replicating nanotech robots that overwhelm everything in their wake.


Don’t forget about MADtv tonight for some fun lampooning of daytime talk, baseball and steroids and of course the Emmys.
