The Spoils of Babylon: Thurs. Jan. 9th at 10p IFC
The preview clips are hilarious and this is a show that should be on your must watch list if you miss seeing the comedic stylings of Kristen Wiig and enjoy the brand of comedy that IFC turns out.
“After decades of anticipation, Eric Jonrosh’s best-selling novel is finally getting the television adaptation it deserves. The Spoils of Babylon—the sweeping, provocative tale of the mighty Morehouse family—premieres on Thursday, January 9 at 10/9c on IFC.

Helix: Fri. Jan. 10th at 10p on Syfy
This is the show I am the most excited about for 2014. Syfy has delievered some interesting series in the past few years. Helix definitely looks exciting from the initial descriptions that have surfaced. It is from Battlestar Galactica creator Ron Moore and is a creepy space thriller.
“Helix is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who travel to a research facility in the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak, only to find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind’s salvation…or total annihilation.” – via Www.syfy.com/helix
