Must See HDTV (November 21st - 27th)

Doctor Who: The Complete Sixth Series
Both halves of the most recent edition of Doctor Who come to Blu-ray this week. Throw in the 2010 Christmas Special, a Doctor Who Confidential inside look for each episode, plus a few more exclusives and extras and it's generally a better option than buying the two parts individually. We're still not sure exactly where to rank the River Song story arc in the Doctor Who canon, but after long, long teases about what was going on the storyline finally wrapped up in a satisfying way at the end.

The Walking Dead
Whoa, did something actually happen on this show last week? We're still rooting for Lori to be eaten by zombies (slowly) and if Daryl ever gets killed off we'll stop watching forever but this show has definitely raised our hopes as it comes to a midseason finale this week. Throw in the much more interesting evil Shane and a Glenn-centric storyline and we actually have reasons to watch beyond just gore-of-the-week trickery. Now, if we could just say the same for Hell on Wheels...

Punkin Chunkin 2011
Once you're stuffed full after a Thanksgiving feast, if you're not watching the brother vs. brother 49ers/Ravens NFL standoff, flip over to Discovery and witness the Punkin Chunkin 2011 competition, where "man meets machine meets mayhem", all hosted by the guys from Mythbusters. Taking place for the 26th year, this annual competition brings teams to a Delaware cornfield to see whose homemade contraption can throw a pumpkin the furthest. Admit it, you're intrigued.
(November 24th, Discovery, 8PM)
