Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 28

“The Long Way Around” (Bravo 8 p.m.) Actor Ewan McGregor (we prefer to think of him as Renton rather than Obi-Wan Kenobi) and his best mate hop on their motorcycles and embark on an epic ride from England to the easternmost tip of Asia in this new documentary series.

Friday 29

“A Scooby-Doo Halloween” (KWBQ-19 7:30 p.m.) Ghosts interrupt a small town's festival celebration (don't they always?) and it's up to the Mysteries Inc. gang to solve the problem. On the plus side, KISS guest stars.
