We're finally past the big game, and now the NBA is ready to take center stage with its All-Star weekend. Besides sports, AMC is kicking off the second half of this season of The Walking Dead, and anyone who has been keeping up knows some big events from the comics are right around the corner. HBO has Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, following the premiere of its new Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese-created show Vinyl, which follows a record exec in the 1970s. The latest James Bond is out on Blu-ray, and Firewatch is here on both PC and PS4. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
