On TV Tonight, Saturday, 2/22/14: Ripper Street, About a Boy and More

TV Equals Midseason 2014 Saturday

Our Picks

Ripper Street – 9pm BBC America
Ripper Street season two premieres tonight and while I’m not sure if he is in this episode, my reason for being psyched about this season is Damien Molony. You should know him from Being Human UK’s later years where he was absolutely revelatory as Hal. If you don’t know him at all, then keep an eye out because he will be popping up on Ripper Street. I went a bit off track there, sorry, Ripper Street is also exciting for being Ripper Street, so, yay, it’s back!

About a Boy – 11:05pm NBC
I am a huge Nick Hornby and Jason Katims fan, so I’m hoping About a Boy takes off. NBC is airing the pilot after whatever Olympic event is happening tonight, so be sure to tune in to see the sitcom’s special debut.

Space Dandy – 11:30 Adult Swim
Meow gets jealous over a dog. Ah, it is nice to know the struggles of managing two pets will still be relevant when we all live in space.
