What to watch this week on IFC: November 5 – 11


Posted by on

As you are probably aware, we are heading to the polls this week to either elect a president or keep the same one in office. Whatever way the ballots go, there’s no doubt that your television will be full of talking heads jabbering on about elephants and donkeys. But not on IFC. Not this week. This week we are all about Vulcans, Klingons and the other crew members of the Starship Enterprise. That’s right, it’s Star Trek Week and we can’t wait to shout, “Beam us up, Scotty!” at the television, remind our roommates that “we’re a doctor, not a miracle worker” and point out everything that is not completely logical.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:


After you watch “Star Trek III: The Search for Spock” at 8/7c, stay tuned for terror (and a few laughs) when we show “Evil Dead 2″ at 10:15 p.m. ET. Watch Bruce Campbell battle protean spirits, a basement ghoul, some trees and his own hand with nothing but a chainsaw, a shotgun, incantations and a seriously gung-ho attitude.


We’re showing “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home” tonight at 8/7c. In the fourth installment of the television series’ silver screen voyage, we find Captain Kirk, Spock, Scotty, Sulu, Dr. McCoy and the rest of the Enterprise crew traveling to modern day (well, 1986) San Francisco to bring some humpback whales back to the future. It’s not logical, but it’s definitely the funniest of all the Star Trek films.


In “Star Trek V: The Final Frontier” Kirk (William Shatner), Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and McCoy (DeForest Kelley) head out in search of God, because if you had a spaceship and nothing else to do, wouldn’t you? Well maybe not, but you would if a renegade Vulcan named Sybok (Laurence Luckinbill) tricked you into it.


Live long and prosper doesn’t mean much when you’re falsely accused of a crime. In “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country,” Captain Kirk (William Shatner) and Doctor McCoy (DeForest Kelley) are accused and imprisoned by Klingon General Chang (Christopher Plummer) for the murder of a Klingon chancellor. The real surprise isn’t Kirk’s and McCoy’s crimes and misdemeanors, but the appearance of Sex and the City’s Kim Cattrall as Spock’s protege. In this galaxy it starts at 8/7c.


In “Star Trek: Generations” we get to see the baton passed from the old school (Captain Kirk) to the new (Jean Luc Picard), but instead of battling to the death they team up to fight some crazy old dude played by Malcolm McDowell. If that’s not a good cause I don’t know what is. Tune in at 8/7c or be banished to the Nexus with Malcolm McDowell forever.


Resistance is futile! So cancel your plans and watch Patrick Stewart as Capt. Jean-Luc Picard and Jonathan Frakes as first mate on the Star Trek: The Next Generation’s first solo movie “Star Trek: First Contact.” At 8/7c, it’s man, Klingon, Vulcan, and android vs The Borg. Who will you root for?


For the final night of Star Trek Week we’re showing “Star Trek: Insurrection” at 8/7c. In the ninth installment of the franchise’s foray onto the silver screen, the crew of the Enterprise get in touch with their inner hippies and stage a tree-hugging revolt against the Federation. Don’t worry, Geordi LaForge looks great in bellbottoms made out of all natural fibers.

Gigi Does It Ep6

Get Freaky With Gigi

5 Ways Gigi Can Help You Become a Better Lover

Gigi limbers up for love tonight at 10:30 PT/ET.

Posted by on

Coming down off this weekend’s Pixy Stix sugar high? Well, rather than raid your grandkids’ candy sacks for some stray Charleston Chews, tune in to tonight’s all new Gigi Does It at 10:30P ET/PT for enough sweet sass to send you into a diabetic coma. But before you fire up the ol’ Life Alert, here are five ways to get ready for tonight’s episode that will also improve your moves in the boudoir.

1. Relive your crazy Halloween.

Sure, you’ve already rung in All Hallows’ Eve with some petty vandalism and your best Taylor Swift getup. But it’s never too late to break out the spooky ghoul costume and do like Gigi and put that TP in the trees to good, practical use.

2. Try something new in the bedroom.

Every healthy relationship ought to include some variety in the intimacy department, which is why it’s always smart to brush up on what those wild kids are doing in the bedroom these days. (If you’re confused with any of the terms, consult your male nurse.)

3. Limber up.

Physical therapists advise against sitting or lying down for extended periods of time, so take a moment to stretch out those quads and hammies with Gigi – regardless of how many “good legs” you have.

4. Browse the Web with a friend.

Surfing the ‘net with a pal can be fun. Just watch out for those nasty pop-up ads.

5. Watch the video that is too hot for Facebook.

Deemed “Too Hot for Facebook,” this Gigi clip removes the bleeps and blurs for a raw, NSFW look at the foul-mouthed granny in action.

Benders 107 TG2

Stale Love Life?

5 Ways to Get Ready for Tonight’s Benders and Improve Your Relationship

Catch Benders tonight at 10P ET/PT on IFC.

Tonight on a brand-new Benders, Karen has a surprise for Paul while Andrew has to deal with a motormouth girlfriend. Before you settle in at 10P ET/PT to watch, check out five ways tonight’s episode can improve your romantic life.

1. Communicate Your Needs in the Bedroom.

Communication is important in any relationship. Sometimes you want to talk about your day, and sometimes you feel like Anthony and just want to fall asleep listening to the latest Marc Maron podcast.

2.  Work on your excuse game.

However, if you do need to find a way to, say, drone out your talkative girlfriend, don’t follow Anthony’s lead. Come up with an excuse that doesn’t lead to you mispronouncing “tinnitus.”

3. Rescue a cat together.

A pet can be a great way to inject some warmth into your relationship. Just make sure your significant other doesn’t break out into hives at the sight of a friendly feline.

4. Keep your lady away from Jim Breuer.

The Breu-ski cannot be trusted around the fairer sex.

5. If all else fails, remember: Use the Chubby.

To make a relationship work, remember: there is no try, only do. If Paul didn’t work hard to keep Karen, she’d probably be Mrs. Brue-ski right now.


Todd Margaret at Comic Con

David Cross Wrote a Hilarious Letter to Todd Margaret Fans at New York Comic Con

Todd Margaret returns on January 7th, 2016 at 10P on IFC.

Posted by on

As you may have heard, David Cross is returning to IFC for a third season of Todd Margaret. If you were lucky enough to be at New York Comic Con, you may have seen a sneak peek of the first three episodes of the six-episode series. (Everyone else will have to wait until Thursday, January 7th, 2016 at 10p ET/PT.)

David Cross was really sorry that he couldn’t be at the New York Comic Con Todd Margaret panel, but as he explains in a personal letter to fans below, his contract very clearly states that he won’t get out of bed for less than $2,500. He had no choice but to prolong his stay in bed by writing you, the loyal fans, a letter to explain what he’s been up to and why you should watch the new season of Todd Margaret. He even gives a few hints about Season three and how you could possibly win a car. Not really, but you should read David’s very funny letter below.



Wild Gigi

Gigi Goes Wild in a Video That’s Too Hot for Facebook

Catch Gigi uncensored Mondays at 10:30P on IFC.

You may have heard of Bad Grandpa, but this video of Gigi uncut and uncensored would shock the dentures right out of his mouth

video player loading . . .

Gigi may be a grandmother, but she’s not the stay home and knit doilies and bake cookies while sipping weak tea type. As anyone who has watched Gigi Does It can tell you, she’s more likely to knit a gimp mask and woo the dad jeans off of every grandpa in Boca without a thought for what the retirement community will think. She has a mouth that would make a sailor blush and isn’t afraid to use it.

Watch this supercut of Gigi’s finest bon mots and bad deeds, but be warned– Gigi is NSFW and Not Safe For Facebook, so crank up the volume at your own peril.
