Must See HDTV June 10th  16th

Though delayed by events including E3 and WWDC, our listings are here, and there is plenty still to see on your HDTV this week. House of Cards makes the trek from Netflix to Blu-ray, while USA brings back two of its series for the summer. Then this weekend we have UFC action and the season premiere of True Blood on HBO, while both the NHL and NBA enter the championship round of their playoffs. Look below for the highlights this week, followed after the break by our weekly listing of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and videogames.

The Last of Us
If the reviews are to be believed, then The Last of Us is not to be missed. Coming from the makers of Uncharted, this PS3 exclusive game follows the journey of two people through a postapocalyptic landscape where most of the people have been transformed into monsters. There's a multiplayer component too, but it's garnering most of the attention for a single player experience that Joystiq concludes "is not a cheerful story, but it's a damned good one."
