 You're contractually obligated to mention Scary Movie but not to mention any of the cartoon series that are airing right now?  Where are Avengers:  Earth's Mightiest Heroes (burning off the remainder of their episodes), Green Lantern, Ultimate Spider-Man, Young Justice (in reruns, though), Tron?  And what about Saving Hope (which I haven't watched yet)?  It's got Michael Shanks as a disembodied spirit wandering a hospital.  How does that not fall under your contract to give us a list of genre shows to watch?

The only things on tv that matters aside from any new clips or news from comicon are

1-Breaking Bad baby, it's back Sunday

2-Black Dynamite's cartoon on adultswim, also Sunday

 That Eurkea synopsis is last week's episode.

Also, I think Rpince Caspian was the weakest of the 3 Narnia movies. The first was fantastic and the third was still fun despite the lackluster Prince Caspian.

 I love the description of The Shining.  Just sayin'.

I've tried to watch Cujo twice.  A sick dog isn't scary, no matter how viscious.  I'm too busy cursing out the pet owners who can't be bothered to get their dog a rabies shot (as is required by law) to become invested in the movie.

Saving Hope, while it includes ghosts and disembodied spirits is more about the social lives of the doctors in the hospital.  I saw the first three episodes and despite Michael Shanks (who isn't ageing well) being in it I dropped it.  First, it's relentlessly mediocre.  Secondly, after three surgeries and rounds of chemotherapy I just don't find hospital shows appealing.  Go figure.

The biggest TV news of the week for me is that season 4 of White Collar is debuting on Tuesday (9pm on USA).  It's not genre but it is VERY entertaining.

 Not sure why you chose to single out Evans when you mention the Fantastic Four, since his Torch was the best thing about both of those movies.

Going to join lusiphur in wondering why there's no mention of the cartoons, especially with the professed love of Tron: Legacy.  I'm enjoying Tron: Uprising even if Elijah Wood does sound bored half the time.

 I don't understand, why would anyone have to apologize for loving Tron Legacy? The best movie based on an old franchise since, well, ever.
