PopWatch Planner: 'The Great Gatsby,' Rihanna's documentary, and more TV finales

May has arrived, spring has (sort of) sprung, and we are officially smack dab in the middle of finale season. We’re also coming up on some of the biggest movie releases of the year. Basically, it’s an exciting time to be an entertainment junkie, folks! So here is what we’ve rounded up for you this week. Whether you’re a Rihanna fan, an avid reader of YA novels, a country music fan, or a Gleek, we’re here to make sure you get the most out of your week … entertainment-wise. The rest is up to you.

MONDAY
Rihanna 777, 8 p.m., Fox
Catch an up-close-and-personal look at life on the road with Rihanna in this documentary about her November 2012 tour, in which she traveled to seven countries for seven concerts in seven days (get it?) to promote her seventh studio album, Unapologetic. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed for a Chris Brown cameo … or maybe we shouldn’t.

TUESDAY
Golden by Lady Antebellum hits record stores
Lady Antebellum’s fourth studio album marks their return to the sound that fans fell in love with — think “Need You Now.” From upbeat tracks to emotional ballads, this record is sure to please fans. But if you’re looking for something a little more outside-of-the-box, we hear good things about The Great Gatsby soundtrack, which also drops Tuesday.

WEDNESDAY
Amazon Original Pilots, amazon.com
Check out Amazon’s slew of original pilots, watch them for free, and then vote for which pilot you want to be developed into a series. Voting goes through mid-May so act now! Our recommendation: Alpha House, starring John Goodman as a D.C. senator.

THURSDAY
Community, 8 p.m., NBC — OR – Glee, 9 p.m., Fox
So many season finales, so little time. Whether you want to spend your night laughing or tapping your feet is up to you, but when it comes to Glee, regionals always provides a good show. Plus, will Blaine go through with proposing to Kurt?!

FRIDAY
The Great Gatsby opens in theaters
Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of the classic novel is finally here, and it promises to be a visual experience that will leave you feeling one of two things: absolutely in awe or absolutely confused. But one thing is certain: With Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Toby Maguire in the lead roles, the party’s attendees are sure to be as pretty as the parties themselves.

SATURDAY
The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
The next big YA novel is here, and it focuses on a brave young female character and what happens to her when the world is invaded by aliens. Oh, and there’s a love interest. More importantly, Sony has already made a deal to launch what Yancey predicts will be a trilogy to the big screen.

SUNDAY
Once Upon a Time, 8 p.m., ABC — OR – Revenge, 9 p.m., ABC — OR – Survivor, 8 p.m., CBS
It is an epic three-way battle of finales, and thanks to our best friend, DVR, we don’t have to choose. But if you do have to choose, we hear that big things are going down in Revenge‘s final hour.

Pass the doughnuts: Which TV show has the worst cops?

Small towns are so much more interesting on television. Their quirks are quirkier, their drama is more dramatic and their faults somehow make them more endearing. But there’s another feature we’ve spotted in the hit small town dramas we’re currently obsessed with: The cops in these series aren’t all that skilled at, well, being cops.

Case in point: Bates Motel. Sure, the cops of White Pine Bay, Ore. are corrupt, but they also don’t even seem to know how to work a crime scene. The first thing that the Sheriff did upon arriving at a murder scene in this Monday’s episode was touch the murder weapon and then the dead body … with his bare hands. Surely even small town peacekeepers know about latex gloves, right? Assuming they have cable, I’m betting they’ve at least seen Law & Order: SVU and could have learned a thing or two about contaminating a crime scene.

'Castle,' 'Once Upon a Time,' 'Scandal': Which TV couple has the best music theme?

There’s some outstanding music on TV right now — the proof lies in EW’s own TV Jukebox. But not all great TV music has words, and for that proof, I ask you to listen below to three instrumental scores that I can’t seem to get out of my head. Nor would I want to.

The music cues below — from Scandal, Once Upon a Time and Castle — were all brought to my attention in the last year or so because they accompanied scenes with three of my favorite TV couples (respectively, Fitz/Olivia, Snow/Charming, and Castle/Beckett) and continue to be part of these couples’ stories in this current TV season. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. Every time I hear them featured over a brand new scene, they are the cherry on top of the moment.

In fact, if asked, I probably couldn’t possibly pick a favorite among them, but that said, I invite you to do so. I’m very curious which comes out on top in your book. READ FULL STORY
