It's the dry month between the end of winter programming and new summer shows. Never fear: we've got awesome clips from Reaper and Batman to get you through the week, without having to go outside.
Cars are turned into weapons Death Race/Mad Max style. In fact, one of the new episodes this week (there are two back-to-back) is focusing exclusively on cars inspired by Mad Max. The other episode pits a meat truck against an ice-cream trolly. The ultimate showdown! Check it out on the Discovery Channel at 8 and 9 PM.
A classic example of "be careful what you wish for" is the film Click. When hard-at-work father, played by Adam Sandler, is granted the gift of a remote control to his life he can now fast forward through all the boring parts, like work and fights with his hottie wife. But, uh oh — turns out it's the boring parts that make up an important part of the journey of life. It's like the time I wished for more Christopher Walken cameos in my movie life, but what I received was Walken guiding Sandler down a vomit inducing journey towards self discovery, spewing out craptastic family comes first lines, while working in the "Beyond" section of Bed Bath and Beyond. Click is on FX at 8 PM.
