Geek shows and movies on UK TV in the coming week

What movies are parading on UK TV over the coming week? Here's our weekly rundown...

T-rex

There was nothing that jumped out at us from the coming week’s schedule that’s either starting up or winding down (although don’t forget that True Blood is on FX again tonight at 10:00pm and repeated at 10 past midnight!). So, we’ll get right to the movies airing over the next seven days with the usual reminder to check schedules for any last second changes.

And we’ll also invite Geek readers to comment below if there’s anything we missed that you’d recommend to fellow geek telly addicts in the UK.
