Check out our highlighted picks of the week right here, followed after the break by our weekly listings of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and videogames.
Sons of Anarchy
SAMCRO is back in action. This isn't the highest profile cable show on this week (don't forget the Entourage and Rescue Me season finales) but as it comes back for a fourth season we are always ready to see what's going down in Charming, CA. After the events of last season things will kick off 14 months later, but we doubt a stint in prison will have changed many things for our favorite motorcycle club.

If you weren't planning on making next weekend an all 9/11 memorial event, we'd probably recommend steering clear of your TV. From CBS to USA to History to A&E there's memorial specials and previously unseen footage everywhere you look. A wonderful opportunity to heal as a nation from the tragic events of a decade ago or a crass display of network executives cashing in on our collective grief? Your choice.
Professional football is finally back. After it seemed like the lockout might last forever we're getting the season under way on schedule. Both Engadget HD fantasy football leagues have drafted and our favorite teams will kick off in Tampa Bay on Sunday, but the league gets its official kickoff Thursday night as the Packers face the Saints on NBC. We know what we'll be watching.
