The Takeaway's weekend to do list

Friday, February 27, 2009

It's Friday and once again we are joined by Allison Williams, associate editor of Time Out New York, for a look at what should be on our weekend to-do list.

Allison Williams' recommends watching Dead Like Me on DVD and to tune in for the final season of ER. Or watch from the beginning on DVD.

We agree, but also want to strongly recommend catching up on Friday Night Lights. What might be the final season is on NBC now and it is one of the best shows on television and this season is a killer. Go Panthers!

Need something to snack on while watching all that tv? Get a delivery from Sticky Fingers Bakeries and top off your fresh-made treats with a schmear of LemonBird's handmade jams.Or settle down with a six pack of Graeter's ice cream. Overnight delivery never tasted so sweet.

U2 certainly took their sweet time crafting their new release, but the result of all their hard work is set to be released this week. Want a sneak peak? Here is there video for Get on Your Boots.

Although it's not particularly action packed, if you're in the mood for some quality time with your PS3, Flowers is probably the prettiest videogame out there. Wait...they make videogames without zombies? Who knew! It's available for download exclusively at the Playstation Network store.

Plan to catch up on the Oscar winners? Here's a rundown of their films to guide your movie watching:
Best Actor: Sean Penn in Milk
Best Actress: Kate Winslet in The Reader
Best Supporting Actor: Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight
Best Supporting Actress: Penelope Cruz in Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Best Documentary: Man on Wire
Best Animated Film: Wall-E
But the big winner was Slumdog Millionaire taking home Best Picture and Best Director nods along with six other Oscars.

Most available on The Takeaway's Amazon store.

You have to wait until March 6th for the release of Watchmen, but to tide you over, here is the trailer.

Finally, the Jonas Bros movie hits theaters this weekend. Try not to squee too loudly!
