Collider Weekly TV Guide: PARKS AND REC, SEX BOX, HOUSE OF CARDS, and More

     February 23, 2015


The Collider Weekly TV Guide is a rundown of notable episodes, premieres, returns, finales, and opportunities to catch up on great shows (or cast an eye to the occasional TV train wreck). Here are the picks for the week beginning Monday, February 23rd:

Monday 2/23: 

Sleepy Hollow Season 2 Finale, “Tempus Fugit” (Fox, 9 p.m.) — Big things have been teased for this finale that might actually include there being real stakes when it comes to death and its finality (!) Then again …

The Voice Season 8 Premiere (NBC, 8 p.m.) — The latest season will feature Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Christina Aguilera, and Pharrell Williams as coaches for another crop of would-be crooners and chanteuses.

Tuesday 2/24: 

Parks and Recreation Series Finale, “One Last Ride” (NBC, 10 p.m.) — The one-hour finale will air at a special time following The Voice. We’ll be posting a retrospective on the series, as well as a recap of the finale this week, so stay tuned.

Wednesday 2/25:

arrow-image-stephen-amell-weekly-tv-guideArrow, “Nanda Parbat” (CW, 8 p.m.) — The return of Ra’s al Ghul, plus the premiere of the Atom suit!

Thursday 2/26:

How to Get Away with Murder Season 1 Finale, “The Night Lila Died / It’s All My Fault” (ABC, 9 p.m.) — In the two-part, two-hour finale, the truth about Lila’s murder is revealed, but it doesn’t change the fact that the students have already killed someone … (note the special time, as Scandal is off this week).

Friday 2/27:

House of Cards Season 3 Premiere (Netflix, 12:01 a.m.) — The Underwoods are back, and more powerful than ever. Their biggest challenge now, though, may be clashing with one another.

Sex Box (WE, 10 p.m.) — Listings on the Collider TV Guide are not necessarily endorsements! Sex Box features couples who are facing intimacy issues, so (naturally), the show makes them have sex in a box on stage (no, you can’t see or hear anything). The couples then emerge in their robes to talk to a panel of experts — all in front of a studio audience — about their problems. Best of luck with those issues.

Saturday 2/28:

Kobe Bryant’s Muse (Showtime, 9 p.m.) —  A new documentary featuring the polarizing athlete. NBA fans may find the behind-the-scenes approach interesting, but the highly-curated series doesn’t appear to truly illuminate much about its subject (at least, any more than he is willing to share).

Sunday 3/1:

will-forte-the-last-man-on-earthBattle Creek at (CBS, 10 p.m) — Two very different law enforcement officers (Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters) team up to clean up the beleaguered town of Battle Creek, Michigan. (Review forthcoming).

The Last Man on Earth (Fox, 9 p.m.) — A risky and intriguing premise: Will Forte is the show’s lone actor, with his character left to himself in the year 2022. The series premiere will run for one hour; subsequent episodes will air Sundays at 9:30. (Review forthcoming).

Secrets and Lies (ABC, 9 p.m.) Ryan Phillippe and Juliette Lewis star in this 10-episode mystery series, based on an Australian show. The premiere will run for 2 hours. (Review forthcoming).
