Jenny’s This Week on TV

Hello from a VERY cold and VERY snowy Kansas! Would anyone else like some winter weather? You can take mine! Let’s see what is on this week that I can curl up under the blanket and watch, shall we?


Sunday is all about the SciFi channel tonight! First, check out the series premiere of Dresden Files at 9/8c! Based on the best-selling series of novels by Jim Butcher, it tells the story of Harry Dresden, a Chicago-based private detective with extraordinary abilities. Where others see typical crimes of assault, kidnapping and murder, Harry sees otherworldly forces at work. He’s a wizard, the real thing, the only wizard listed in the Chicago yellow pages. Whether consulting for the police on inexplicable crimes or following his own cases, Dresden does battle with the forces of darkness, always maintaining a wry sense of humor and a unique perspective on our world. It stars Paul Blackthorne, from 24, ER, Holby City and Deadwood!

Also new tonight on the SciFi channel is the winter premiere of Battlestar Galactica at 10/9c! As a supernova threatens to destroy the algae planet, the Galactica team must race to find clues to the Earth’s location.

    Which three episodes of The Office are re-running on Thursday? According to their website, they’re only running The Coup, but the way networks change stuff around, that might be outdated.

  • Jenny

    According to Zap2It and, it’s The Coup at the regular time then Grief Counseling & Initiation at 10 & 10:30 in place of ER. :)

  • jacki
