Super Bowl is Sunday, in case you weren’t paying attention. Heroes will have an early finale. NBC decided to have it wrap up before the Olympics instead of continuing again in March. On DirecTV, Friday Night Lights finishes up its third season. I believe it’ll be airing on NBC spring or summer. This Friday, the Winter Olympics start. There are two shows that start this week with “survivor” in the title. One is another version of the CBS reality competition show and the other is a BBC America drama. Don’t confuse them!
Pick of the Week
Channel: BBC America
Starring: Julie Graham, Paterson Joseph, Freema Agyeman, Max Beesley, Phillip Rhys, Zoe Tapper, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Shaun Dingwall, Chahak Patel
Premieres: Saturday, February 13
Synopsis: A virus has killed most of the world’s population. A group of survivors must figure out how to live with one another and start over again.
My Take: It has a lot going on with some interesting characters. I like the actors since I have seen a good portion of them in other BBC shows.
