Baby it’s cold outside. Luckily all the good stuff (television, beer, cheese doodles, heat) is happening inside. Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

If you liked “Mama” the supernatural thriller that stars Jessica Chastain, be sure to check out Guillermo Del Toro’s “Pan’s Labyrinth” when it airs today at 3:30 p.m. ET. The film is set in 1944 Spain, and tells the tale of when a lonely girl (Ivana Baquero) encounters a faun in an ancient maze and must complete three dangerous tasks to achieve immortality. It’s “Alice in Wonderland” as only Del Toro could tell it.

Tuesday

Tim Burton’s “Frankenweenie” is finally available on DVD and Blu-Ray. Celebrate the film’s release by staging a double feature with “Edward Scissorhands,” which we are showing at 8/7c. The film stars Johnny Depp as the unfinished creation of a slightly mad scientist (Vincent Price) who joins a suburban family after the Avon lady finds him.

Wednesday

Want to know the best way to learn to love hump day? Spend Wednesday night watching our Friday the 13th double feature. At 8/7c we’re showing “Friday the 13th, Part VI: Jason Lives” where masked-killer Jason is brought back by a lightning bolt at the lake, much to the chagrin of teenager Tommy (Thom Mathews). Stay tuned for terror when we have “Friday the 13th Part VII — The New Blood” at 10/9c.

Thursday

Did you love Daniel Day Lewis in “Lincoln” and Leonardo DiCaprio in “Django Unchained”? Catch them together in “Gangs of New York” at 8/7c. Martin Scorsese’s epic tells a tale straight from the mean streets of New York City, this time set in the even meaner streets of Civil War-era Manhattan. In the midst of award season antics, it’s always fun to remember that “Gangs of New York” was nominated for ten Academy Awards and was the winner of none.

Friday

Skip out on Happy Hour early to make it home in time to watch “Batman” at 7:15 p.m. ET. The film stars Michael Keaton as the man behind the mask as the Caped Crusader tries to save both dismal Gotham City and gorgeous Vicki Vale (Kim Basinger) from the freaky Joker (Jack Nicholson). Then stay tuned for a new episode of Fred Armisen’s and Carrie Brownstein’s sketch comedy show “Portlandia” at 10/9c.

Saturday

Batman fever continues with a Saturday night double feature of “Batman Returns” and “Batman Forever,” starting at 8/7c. In “Batman Returns” Keaton continues his reign as the Dark Knight, while Val Kilmer takes over the cape at 10:45/9:45c.

Sunday

Catch up on the third season of Portlandia with a marathon a.k.a. a great excuse to stay in bed all day and watch TV. Step into the wonderfully weird world of Portlandia with Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein starting at 12/11c.

It’s been (Barenaked Ladies style) seven years since Comedy Bang! Bang! premiered on Southern California’s Indie 103 radio station as a music and variety show, then known as Comedy Death-Ray. And in those seven years, host Scott Aukerman has evolved the radio show into a podcast, a TV series, and a comedy mainstay for fans of surreal, offbeat humor. To celebrate the special occasion, Scott invited fan favorites Jason Mantzoukas, Horatio Sanz and Paul F. Tompkins, as well as a slew of popular characters and segments, to CB!B!’s 7th Anniversary Show.

Click here to listen to the 7th anniversary show on Earwolf. And just a reminder, Comedy Bang! Bang! returns to IFC for a fifth season on June 3rd with back-to-back episodes on Fridays at 11P ET/PT and 11:30P ET/PT. Season Five will feature “Weird Al” Yankovic as the new bandleader and a bevy of guests like Kevin Bacon, Kristen Schaal, Tony Hale, Aubrey Plaza, T-Pain, and more.

That 70s Show Cast Reunion

Hangin' Out

That ’70s Show Reunion Photo Proves the Kids Are Still Alright

Catch That '70s Show Mondays & Tuesdays starting at 6P on IFC.

The stars of That ’70s Show had their own throwback reunion as Fez, Jackie, Kelso, Donna, and Hyde recently got back together for a candid on-set photo. Posted to Laura Prepon‘s Instagram account, actors Wilmer Valderrama, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, and Prepon posed on the set of Netflix’s The Ranch — which stars Kutcher and Masterson as brothers who manage their family ranch. Older and wiser but no less striking, the cast seems to have weathered the ’80s (and the ’00s) very well.

Keeping this from being a complete That ’70s Show reunion is Topher Grace’s absence, but this photo works as a reunion of the cast from the post-Eric final season. With The Ranch renewed for a second season, we could be seeing more ’70s reunion moments. Maybe Tommy Chong will stop by?

Who knew Jason was our nation’s foremost expert on shark-related trivia?
