What’s On TV This Week (August 8 – August 14)

*TV listings are as fluid as a tai chi fighter and may change without notice. Channels may also vary schedules by region. Movie titles and dates are based on the channel listings and usually reflect US release versions. The scriptures say “the wise man always checks local listings.”*

I suppose we can blame the lack of offerings this week on the Olympics… Of course it seems like we have been in a bit of a dry spell lately. I guess the powers that be expect us to play outside all summer long. Don’t they know that it’s hot outside and the couch is so comfortable? At least there are TV shows all week. CBS is running another new RUSH HOUR Saturday at 8:00 PM, and you can’t swing a three section staff without hitting an episode of WALKER, TEXAS RANGER. It’s on Grit every night at 8:00 and 9:00 PM, Inspiration weekdays at 2:00 and 3:00 AM, 10:00 and 11:00 PM, as well as Sunday at 8:00 and 9:00 PM. If that isn’t enough, WGN also airs episodes Monday through Thursday at 9:00, 10:00 and 11:00 AM.

As far as movies go, if you blink you might miss the whole first half of the week. Everything Monday is on early and on El Rey. They have OPERATION CONDOR 2: THE ARMOUR OF THE GODS (1991) at midnight, FIVE DEADLY VENOMS (1979) at 2:00 AM, and CRIPPLED AVENGERS (1978) at 4:00 AM.

Tuesday starts at 3:55 PM with LONE WOLF MCQUADE (1983) on MGM, and continues with AN EYE FOR AN EYE (1981) at 4:00 PM and INFERNAL AFFAIRS (2002) at 6:00 PM, both on El Rey.

Wednesday MGM offers up ENTER THE NINJA (1981) at 2:15 AM… and that is it for Wednesday!

Thursday has a good deal to offer, but not until noon when AMC has the classic ENTER THE DRAGON (1973). El Rey is featuring the Brave Archer saga all day with BRAVE ARCHER (1977) at 4:00 PM and again at 11:00 PM, BRAVE ARCHER 2 (1978) at 6:30 PM and 1:30 AM Friday, and BRAVE ARCHER 3 (1981) at 9:00 PM and 4:00 AM Friday morning. Thursday also offers up KILL BILL VOL 1 (2003) at 8:00 PM and KILL BILL VOL 2 (2004) at 10:30 PM, both on AMC, RUSH HOUR 3 (2007) at 8:00 PM on IFC, and BAD DAY AT BLACK ROCK (1954) on Turner Classic Movies at 11:15 PM.

Besides the showings of BRAVE ARCHER 2 and 3 already mentioned, Friday offers up ENTER THE DRAGON at 1:30 AM, MARKED FOR DEATH (1990) at 4:00 AM and KILL BILL VOL 1 at 11:30 AM, all on AMC, and RUSH HOUR 3 at 2:00 PM on IFC.

Saturday only sees THE LAST SAMURAI (2003) at 1:30 PM on AMC and Sunday ends the week with the original RUSH HOUR (1998) at 6:00 PM on TBS.
