Thursday, April 1

On TV, FlashForward and The Vampire Diaries have new eps.  Fringe finally returns, and The Mentalist has a new episode. 

Friday, April 2

On TV, General Zod appears in a new episode of Smallville (Tivo link).  Batman teams up with the Big Red Cheese (Captain Marvel) on the Brave and the Bold.  You get a new Ghost Whisperer, a new Medium, a new episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and the return of Stargate: Universe.  There’s also Merlin, Spartacus, and Most Haunted!  You’ll have a lot of DVR to watch…because, you know you may be going to the movies instead.

One of the most anticipated movies of the year opens: the remake of Clash of the Titans!  Wait a minute!  Seriously?  The Ray Harryhausen movie with that mechanical owl?  That can’t be right…checking…checking.  Yow!  ;) 

If CotT is sold out, you could see Furry Vengeance, with Brendan Fraser and Brooke Shields…you could so!

Both Woodlands, Texas and Seattle, Washington have Anime cons this weekend…clearly, it’s some kind of giant-eyed red panda school girl conspiracy.  (Sakura-Con in Seattle, Anime Matsuri in Woodlands).  They start on Friday, run through Sunday.

Saturday, April 3

Sunday, April 4

On TV, the Discovery Channel has two new eps of Life (Birds and Creatures of the Deep).

Adding the Tivo links is new for me: let me know if you think it’s worthwhile.
