Prime Picks

Law & Order: Criminal Intent (NBC): Repeat. This season’s premiere episode, “Amends,” replays, where Eames’ late husband’s partner is killed and to solve the case they must look into her husband’s murder as well.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (NBC): Repeat. The eighth episode, “Fight,” from this season replays, where two brothers get charged with the murder of a young girl that looks to be connected to ultimate fighting. Gaius Charles (Friday Night Lights) guest-stars.

Law & Order (NBC): Repeat. This season’s premiere episode, “Called Home,” replays, where new detective Cyrus Lupo, played by Jeremy Sisto (Kidnapped, Six Feet Under), is introduced when he returns home from abroad when his brother seemingly commits suicide.

Solid Selection

The Terminal (ABC): Released 2004. Tom Hanks plays a man stuck in an airport terminal when the U.S no longer recognizes his country. Catherine Zeta-Jones also stars. Runs three hours.

Cable Choices

Office Space (Comedy Central): Released 1999. This is one of the TVaholic’s all-time favorite movies. Ron Livingston (Standoff) plays a guy at a software company that after he stops caring about his job, starts getting noticed and ends up on the fast track. Meanwhile, he and his buddies plot to install a virus that will steal the round-off error from the company’s financial computations and deposit it in their account, as they are all designated for termination. Haven’t seen it in a while. Should probably pull out my DVD and watch it commercial free. Runs two hours.

Saturday Night Live (E!): Repeat. Host Natalie Portman with musical guest Fall Out Boy. Plays again later.

Other Options

  • Husband for Hire (Oxygen): Premiere. Nadine Velazquez (My Name Is Earl) plays a woman that must be married by 25 or forfeit her share of the family fortune, which was a condition in her late mother’s will. Cheesy romantic comedy ensues.
