As Robert Palmer so poignantly said: The heat is on. That’s right, summer is here and if this heat wave keeps us we’re never stepping outside again. Or at least not until September. Maybe October. Maybe Christmas or whenever Mother Nature gives it a rest and it cools down outside. Luckily there is a lot of great programming to watch between now and then thanks so we will be entertained in our homes-turned-biodomes.
Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:
Watch Terrence Malick’s “The Thin Red Line” at 8/7c because it’s a great movie that marked Malick’s return to filmmaking after a twenty year sabbatical. It has the added benefit of reminding you that your life ain’t so bad because at least you’re not battling it out in Guadalcanal. It starts at 8 p.m. ET.
We’re showing “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” at 8/7 c. Will we be watching? As Buffy says, “Does the word “duh” mean anything to you?”
Sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, the tale of a fateful trip …to an ob/gyn. It didn’t take three hours for this girl to find out that she has an extra set of teeth. Tune into “Teeth” at 10:15 p.m. ET and if you’ve ever wondered about the vagina dentata myth you’ll never wonder again. Trust us, this is no ordinary horror story.
It’s Friday, which means new episodes of Comedy Bang! Bang! and Bunk start at 10/9 c. This week Michael Cera parks himself on Scott Aukerman’s couch and the Cake Boss stops by to tell Scott his future. Then at 10:30 p.m. ET, watch another round of fast-paced fun on Bunk with Kumail Nanjiani, Tom Lennon and Eugene Mirman.
Spend Saturday with Sylvester Stallone. Watch as a Vietnam Veteran living a simple life in Thailand is forced to call upon his long-buried, legendary lethal skills to rescue a missionary (Julie Benz) and her comrades from the Burmese army. That’s right, we’re showing “Rambo” at 10/9c. You know you wanna.
Skip Sunday supper with your own family and spend it with the Bluths instead. We’re showing Arrested Development from 12 -3 p.m. ET, so grab something from the banana stand and ride your segue or drive your stair truck straight back to the couch for three hours of solid fun. And try not to blue yourself.
