Curb Your Enthusiasm
While Larry David may not understand why anyone wants to see this old man in HD, we wouldn't have it any other way and Curb is ready to kick off its second season in high definition Sunday night. Last season featured a Seinfeld reunion show-within-the-show and while the title itself may be a warning to lower our expectations, we can't wait to see where it will go next.

If you've been missing out on Elijah Wood starring as a somewhat lost young man suddenly accompanied by a dog that he (but not anyone else) sees as a human being, this Thursday's episode is an opportunity to correct a grave mistake. Yes, it's a remake of an Australian show, and a lot like a live action version of Calvin & Hobbes or Brian from Family Guy. So?

Women's World Cup soccer
Yes, it's soccer, and it's women's soccer, but we'll always take an opportunity to watch the beautiful game being played at a high level with national pride on the line. The US faces Sweden in their final opening round match and having already locked up a spot in the quarterfinals, will play to determine seeding in the hopes of avoiding playing Brazil in the next round. Consider this one a warm up to get familiar with the squad before the matches get real this weekend.
