TV THIS WEEK: ‘The Movie Show’ and G4 on SYFY; World beyond; & new Mandalorian

0


This week brings the season finale of The walking dead spin off World beyond, a new Star Trek: Discovery, a new Mandalorian, and a brand new SYFY series where our favorite chatty puppets dive into the movies we all know and love. Oh, and the G4 Video Game Network is making a vacation-themed comeback as well!

The latest opus of The Mandalorian seeks to continue the search for a Jedi to help with The Child; while Discovery continues to unravel the futuristic mystery of The Burn. On SYFY, we get a preview of the puppet movie talk show (yes, you read that right!) The cinema show; plus the G4 Reunion Holidays Event. If you’re looking for traditional Thanksgiving programming, NBC broadcasts the 94th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.

Digging deeper, there are also plenty of great movies to fill in the gaps this week, with Aquaman, Venom, Elf, Smallfoot, and To glide on the program this week. There are also holiday programs suitable for children, such as Illumination Presents the Minions Holiday Special on NBC, and a new Hell’s lair on SYFY’s TZGZ animation block.
