What to Watch 8/3-8/4

Another light weekend as we are in the doldrums of summer sports and quality tv wise.

Lawrence of Arabia (TCM, 8:00 PM, Saturday)

This is one of my favorite movies.  It requires a lot of patience but if you have time and nothing else to do tonight, it is worthwhile in the long run and the cinematography is stunning if nothing else.

John-Cena-Vs-The-Rock-HD-wallpaper

Wrestlemania 29 (NBC, 9:00 PM, Saturday)

Because we all need more Rock vs. John Cena in our lives.

UFC 163 Aldo vs. Korean Zombie (PPV, 10:00 PM, Saturday)

Not the most attractive card in the world, but hopefully the Korean Zombie can get Aldo out of his “grinding opponents into a decision shell.”

Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Boston Red Sox (TBS, 1:30 PM, Sunday)

This is a neat little interleague matchup you are unfamiliar with.  Both teams are good as a bonus.

Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies (ESPN, 8:00 PM, Sunday)

Speaking of good, my beloved Braves are the hottest team in baseball right now having huge innings of offense.

The-Killing-Seventeen

The Killing (AMC, 9:00 PM, Sunday)

People swear this show has gotten a lot better in its third season.  I don’t totally believe them but they wrap up their season with a two hour conclusion.
