Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Play Youtube Video

Thursday 29

“Naked Science” (National Geographic 6 p.m.) “Naked Science” gets all timely to investigate the ins and outs (mostly outs, I guess) of the Icelandic volcano eruption.

Friday 30

“Two Kenyan Guys” (National Geographic 8 p.m.) Is NatGeo’s new travel/culture series exploitative or awesome? Mostly the latter. Young Maasai warriors Lemarti and Boniface head down to Texas in tonight’s episode. Check out the strip clubs, boys. You won’t be disappointed.

Incubus (TCM 12:15 a.m.) So ... bear with me on this. William Shatner stars in this slow, atmospheric, incredibly oddball 1965 film about a dude who falls in love with a demon. Did I mention all the dialogue in the film is spoken in Esperanto? It is. Honest.

Saturday 1

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls (IFC 9:45 p.m.) Russ Meyer’s ne plus ultra (and that’s saying something) is undoubtedly this psychedelic 1970 mixture of sex, drugs and rock ’n’ roll. Dolly Read, Cynthia Myers and Marcia McBroom provide the gigantic boobs. The Strawberry Alarm Clock provides the tunes. John LaZar provides the classic drug-fuelled freakout.

Sunday 2

“Anxious” (Discovery Health 7 p.m.) Well, maybe a little.

“Enraged” (Discovery Health 8 p.m.) Now that you mention it.

“Family Guy” (KASA-2 8 p.m.) For it’s 150th episode, “Family Guy” gives us a bunch of random clips, flashbacks and musical numbers wrapped around some thin excuse for a story. ... Although, come to think of it, that’s pretty much what “Family Guy” does every week.

Monday 3

“Ultimate Chili Challenge” (TLC 8 p.m.) Cooking, not eating. In case you were wondering.

Tuesday 4

“Deadliest Warrior” (Spike 8 p.m.) Spike TV’s “What if?” ultimate smackdown goes from the broad (Vikings vs. ninjas) to the personal (Jesse James vs. Al Capone). Who would have come out on top in this historical battle royale? Hmmm. Does Al get to bring his machine gun?

Wednesday 5

“My Strange Addiction” (Discovery Health 7 p.m.) Tanning? Yeah, well, that’s slightly strange. Eating chalk? OK, pretty damn strange.

“Worst Case Scenario” (Discovery 8 p.m.) “Man vs. Wild” host Bear Grylls teaches you how to survive assorted life-threatening situations—like plunging elevators, car crashes, frozen lakes, shark attacks, that kinda stuff. I suppose Bear outta know. He’s awfully manly. And his name is Bear.
