Last week we listed the must watches for the week. This week we are doing the same.
Let´s see what are the must watch shows for Week of March 28 through April 2
1- The Secret Life of the American Teenager – Season Premiere on ABC Family
In the season opener, “Who Do You Trust,” summer vacation is over and everyone is back at school and dealing with relationships that are becoming increasingly complicated. Amy has decided she would like to take her relationship to the next level with Ricky. Ricky, meanwhile, returns to his apartment after an anxious day at the clinic to find his birth mom out of prison and looking for a place to stay. And Adrian and Ben are excited and anxious to find out if they’re having a boy or a girl. Beverley Mitchell (“7th Heaven”) guest stars as the new guidance counselor, Katelyn O’Malley, and one of her first visits is from Ashley, who decides she wants to be home schooled.
2- Castle S03E19 – Law & Murder on ABC
Before a three week hiatus until next original episode of Castle, we get to see te episode named Law & Murder, where during the high-profile trial of a murdered socialite, a juror suddenly tumbles out of the jury box — dead! When Castle & Beckett learn the juror was poisoned, their investigation soon uncovers that this seemingly innocent juror may not have been so innocent after all.
After all I named Stana Katic second in my Top TV leading ladies ranking, how can I not recommend this episode!
3- Nurse Jackie Season 3 Premiere on Showtime
Nurse Jackie is back this monday, that makes a must watch moment. Jackie’s marriage is strained, as is her relationship with O’Hara after the intervention; Akalitus warns the staff that nearby hospitals have closed down, straining the staff and resources; Zoey publicly confesses her affair with Lenny.
Also, Edie Falco is fifth in our Top 20 Leading ladies ranking.
4- United States of Tara Season 3 Premiere
Showtime will definitely be on tonight. In the start of a new season, Tara wants to earn her college degree; Kate tries to plan the next phase of her life.
5- The Good Wife S02E18 on CBS
Another one of our Top Ten leading ladies is Julianna Margulies. This week on The Good Wife the firm sues a convicted murderer who is making money from a song he wrote about his crime.
6- Mr Sunshine S01E08 on ABC
This one is not on anyone´s must watch list, I´m sure, but the show is gaining each week on me and in this episode, when Roman becomes Alice’s assistant, he surpasses her expectations; Alonzo makes a confession.
It will be interesting to see a capable Roman.
7- American Idol Top Eleven once again
In this week the finalists will sing songs from Elton John, and I get another shot at proving my theory about Twitter predicting American Idol results.
8- Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel on HBO
A round-table discussion on the state of college sports in America. Winner of 21 Sports Emmys in 15 years, HBO’s real sports with Bryant Gumbel departs from its traditional format to present a special hour-long edition dedicated to the state of college sports in America. Presented three days before the men’s NCAA Final Four tip off in Houston, the show will present an entertaining and substantive dialogue on the current state of big-time athletics in college sports, addressing hot-button issues and offering practical solutions to current problems.
I also did a special coverage and sneak peeks of Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.
9- The Big Bang Theory S04E19 – The Zarnecki Incursion
The Big Bang Theory is back with a new original, where the guys try to figure out who hacked Sheldon’s online-game account.
10- Shark Tank – Friday 8PM on ABC
The best reality TV Show these days in terms of educational content. You watch, you learn, and also you take things for your entrepreneur self to use in your life and business. In this episode, children seek an investor for their idea; the sharks fight for a piece of a furniture business.
11- Breakout Kings S01E05 Queen of Hearts
Breakout Kings is the best new show so far in 2011 (Ok, so Borgias and Camelot and The Killing are yet to premiere). So by this week, it´s the best new show on TV and you need to start watching it.
In this episode a woman convicted of stabbing her husband 48 times escapes on a school bus.
And by the way… the other shows I mentioned haven´t premiered yet and still have to deliver according to expectations. Breakout Kings did it and even surpassed them by a lot.
12- Camelot Premiere – Friday April 1 10 PM on Starz
Ok, I said Breakout Kings is the best new show, right? Well here´s one coming to challenge it for that title, and it certainly has what it takes.
I had the chance to watch the premiere of Camelot and did some spoilery review. STARZ will present the original series premiere of “Camelot” on Friday, April 1st with two hour-long episodes airing back to back beginning at 10PM ET/PT; the one-hour, 10-part series will then air weekly on Fridays at 10pm et/pt. Featuring a talented ensemble cast including Joseph Fiennes reimagining the iconic role of Merlin, Jamie Campbell Bower as the young and reckless Arthur, and Eva Green in her television debut as the darkly powerful Morgan, the character-driven series also features Tamsin Egerton (Guinevere), Claire Forlani (Igraine) and Peter Mooney (Kay).
13- Borgias Premiere on Showtime Sunday 9PM
One of the other much anticipated premieres. Showtime will air the premiere of The Borgias starring Jeremy Irons. As if that was not enough Emmanuelle Chriqui to play a guest star role, a little later the show announced Colm Feore will play Cardinal Della Rovere. Joanne Whalley is cast as Vanozza Dei Cattanei in The Borgias and Holliday Grainger joins as Lucrezia Borgia and Lotte Verbeek as Guilia Farnese.
Tune in to the 2-hour premiere of THE BORGIAS on SHOWTIME, Sunday, April 3rd at 9PM ET/PT. Following the premiere, new episodes will air on Sundays at 10 PM ET/PT.
