Weekend To-Do List: De- edition

Posted on

This weekend’s all about the letters ”De-” being the first two in a word or title. This prefix ranked #1 in a very important, nationally recognized poll I seem to have lost the link to. Whoops!

  • Deliver Us From Evil, a documentary about sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, received a rare A from Owen Gleiberman. It opens tonight. If you want something more lighthearted but that still has to do with the concept of de-ity (see, this is totally working), try Jesus Camp. It’s a hoot and a hallelujah.
  • The Departed opened last Friday and continues to dominate the box office, which means you’ve probably seen it. If not, go. And speaking of departures, I want to toss in a shameless plug for my favorite new guilty pleasure, Mile High. It’s about hot, British flight attendants. That’s really all you need to know. (BBC America, Sundays at 10:30)
  • Desperate Housewives is something I should probably mention if I really wanna continue with this theme. (ABC, Sunday, 9 p.m.)
  • So is Showtime’s promising new series Dexter (Sunday, 10 p.m.). Michael C. Hall works with the de-ceased. Again.
  • Deee-Lite deserves a bullet point, just on principle.
  • May I de-rect you to this video of a dude setting the world record for the number of T-shirts worn? (‘Cause it’s getting cold outside, and you need to wear layers.) Same guy pulled off a similar stunt last night for Mr. D. Letterman on The Late Show.
  • Out this week on D-VD: Robert Altman’s A Prairie Home Companion, which EW’s Tanner Stransky calls a ”tour-de-force.”
  • Dessert. Go have some. It’s Friday!
