Summer might be coming to an end, but like high school coaches always say, “It’s important to finish strong!” At least, that’s what we imagine them saying based on the television shows we’ve watched involving high school coaches. Regardless, grab your remotes, your movie tickets, and your reading glasses, because pop culture has a lot in store for you this week:
Teen Wolf, 10 p.m., MTV
It’s summer finale time! Tonight, Scott and his friends have to save their parents from an evil druid and save themselves from the Alphas. People die! Other people don’t. All in all, this finale is about two things: Fighting and feeling.
The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes
In this summer must-read, Moyes creates two engaging, independent characters living in different centuries but somehow connected through a painting that leads to love and an appreciation of life’s simple pleasures.
Top Chef Masters, 10 p.m., Bravo
It’s time once again for the “Restaurant Wars” challenge! And this time, it features Busy Philipps because, you know, why not?
Son of a Gun by Justin St. Germain
Years after his mother was shot, St. Germain investigates his mother’s life and the violent culture that she became a part of. Turns out, a violent culture makes for a very entertaining read.
You’re Next, in theaters
If you’re a fan of horror movies, we can’t say enough good things about this film festival hit from director Adam Wingard. However, if you have a perpetual fear of someone in a mouse mask invading your home, maybe you should pass on this one. To each their own, right?
The World’s End, in theaters
If this movie is even half as funny as the trilogy’s first film, Shaun of the Dead, and/or involves a scene set to Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now,” we will go ahead and highly recommend it.
Dexter, 9 p.m., HBO
Deb is back on the force, and a new murder brings Dexter to the end of his rope with the brain surgeon. He decides one last murder is in order before he can focus on a life with Hannah. And as we all know, as soon as you decide you’re done (or almost done) being bad, that’s when things typically blow up. Just ask Walter White.
