Geek shows and movies on UK TV in the coming week

Season two of Reaper starts in the UK this week, and there are plenty of movies to watch out for, too...

Don Logan Sexy Beast

We have only one show to highlight this week, which gives you ample opportunity to check out Reaper. The first episode of the second season of Sam’s struggle with the Devil airs at 9:00m on E4 Thursday, 2 July with …A New Hope. The show is a comedic look at a likeable slacker and his fellow slackees as they do Beelzebub’s bidding by rounding up Hell’s evil escapees. We quite like it and there’s no news of a life after this season, so catch it while you can.

Now on to the films showing over the next 7 days. The dates and times were accurate when we compiled them, but do check your local listings before you make a date with your sofa. Sofas hate last minute changes and bum substitutions. No, really. They’ve told us. They write in. Honestly.
