What To Watch This Week on TV: 'Walking Dead' Returns, 'Looking' Picks Up - VIDEO


Check out our weekly guide to make sure you're catching the big premieres, crucial episodes and the stuff you won't admit you watch when no one's looking.

— It's a big week for superhero fans this week. On Tuesday at 8 p.m., Marvel legend Stan Lee makes his inevitable cameo on ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Then, if you're more of a DC Comics fan, Katrina Law (Spartacus) makes her debut on Arrow as a member of the League of Assassins Wednesday at 8 p.m. on the CW.

More picks and clips, including Hannah's latest humiliation on Girls and what's to come on LookingAFTER THE JUMP...


— Internet nerds, rejoice! Everyone's favorite cat, Lil BUB, is joined by Amy Sedaris and Andrew W.K. in the slumber party-themed Lil BUB's Special Special. Sure, it's not the most cerebral entertainment, but not everything can be The Wire, or whatever. Kick back with BUB Saturday at 9 p.m. Eastern on Animal Planet.



— When we last left the survivors on The Walking Dead, their numbers were thinned by an all-out assault on their prison hideout. We pick up Sunday at 9 p.m. Eastern on AMC with Carl (Chandler Riggs) and Rick (Andrew Lincoln) navigating their new (somehow even more bleak) reality.



— Fellow "mediaists" may find Hannah's story hit too close to home Sunday at 10 p.m. on HBO. With her book deal all but dead, she takes a job writing advertorial at a major magazine. It doesn't take long for her to find more than a few ways to humiliate herself starting on day one.



— If you've been waiting for HBO's Looking to pick up steam, this week's fourth installment may (finally) pique your interest. Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez) engages in a new project with a sex worker, while Patrick (Jonathan Groff) is forced into close quarters with his boss (Russell Tovey) pulling an all-day working session. Plus, more Scott Bakula! Tune in for the latest developments Sunday at 10:30 p.m. Eastern on HBO.

  1. Arrow has no reason to be as good a show as it is.

  2. looking is such trash, if the show was supposed to be in the 70s or 80s maybe it would make sense. but the characters are so anachronistic. and the content is also 30 years out dated.

    I think you're correct; but it's kind of why I'm starting to like it. It reminds me sweetly of "Tales of the City".

  4. Agree with MIKEY. On paper, Arrow should be mediocre at best. However, it's one of the most tightly written and produced shows with probably THE best looking overall cast on any show currently on TV if not in the history of TV.

    I knew Buzz was gonna end up being a sugar daddy! Hope we get to see Dom and Buzz go at it at least once.

  5. The third episode of Looking was a little better. I am starting to almost like two of the characters now but Jonathan Groff is truly UNBEARABLE ! He is so smug and is the WORST actor I have seen for a while. AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL. He overacts and why do we have to have his character shoving food in his mouth numerous times per episode ? He eats like a pig and it is disgusting - then he starts his overacting dialogue with his mouth full of food. I don't care that he is supposed to be the big name in this show - he needs to go. I cannot sit through much more of his awfulness.

    I loved the asian guy & Scott Bakula's character in this third episode. I hope they develop Scott's character as a regular and make him a realistic, intelligent, down to earth gay man & not just a trick for the guy with the pathetic and outdated mustache.

    If anyone who has anything to do with the show is reading any of these blogs to view the feedback - PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get rid of Jonathan Groff !
