In the run up to the NFL's conference championships, ABC and CW have loaded up tonight with comic book TV. ABC has a celebration of 75 years of Captain America leading into the Agent Carter premiere, while CW has Justice League action. FX is premiering a new series from Zach Galifianakis called Baskets, while Netflix has its Chelsea Does documentary series this weekend. On Blu-ray, it's time for Straight Outta Compton, as well as a Criterion release of Oscar Isaac in Inside Llewyn Davis. Gamers can revisit the world of Resident Evil on new consoles with some re-releases, as well as a new edition of A Boy and His Blob. Oh, and on Sunday night some show called The X-Files is coming back for a few episodes. You might be interested. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
