Must See HDTV for the week of January 20th: Black Sails, Sleepy Hollow and Workaholics

While football takes a breath before the Super Bowl in two weeks, others rush in to fill the gap. The NBA has a full slate of games scheduled for Sunday afternoon, while Starz will premiere its new Michael Bay-produced pirate series Black Sails (you can actually watch the entire first episode embedded after the break) on Saturday night. Netflix follows up its Oscar-nominated documentary The Square with another highly anticipated doc, as Mitt takes a look at the presidential candidate from inside his own campaign. Still, our eyes will be trained on the season finale of Sleepy Hollow tonight, and the return of Workaholics on Comedy Central later this week. Dead Rising 3 just pushed out a massive patch ahead of its DLC release tomorrow, while Blu-ray releases include Captain Phillips and a remastered version of the original Robocop. Check after the break for trailers plus our weekly listing of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and gaming.
