'Nightflyers' Jonathan Hession/Syfy

This week college football rolls into the conference championship rounds, while science fiction fans can check out the latest George R.R. Martin adaptation, Nightflyers. Unlike most cable shows it will be available for a 10-episode binge from day one, so you can see all of this "haunted house story on a starship."

Tonight HBO is airing The Truth About Killer Robots, which is a program that sounds like it was developed by killer robots to lull us into a false sense of security. It's narrated by a Japanese robot called Kodomoroid, and "goes beyond sensational deaths to examine more subtle but pervasive ways that robots affect humanity." Meanwhile, the "screenlife" wonder Searching is available on Blu-ray, while gamers can choose between games like Darksiders III or Abzû. Look after the break to check out each day's highlights, including trailers and let us know what you think (or what we missed).
