As we reopen The Geek Closet this month, it's all Doctor Who: I look at the new releases from BBC Books, and check out some out-of-this-world wardrobe!

Since 2002, they've been designing clothes modeled after the ones you've seen and pined for from TV, movies, video games and anime. The Doctor Who line is but one of their man...

Secret Diary of a Call Girl

Nurse Jackie
Showtime has been around for a few decades, but for some time it never quite managed real competition against its rival, HBO. Things have changed. In the past few years it has definitely blossomed with movies, both famous and independent, and quality television programming.

Past popular shows "The L Word" and "Queer As Folk" paved the way for current programming like "Dexter," "Weeds," and "The Tudors." So what's up for Showtime this year? Let's take a look!

Premiering on Monday, June 8 at 10:30 PM, "Nurse Jackie" stars Edie Falco as the title character. Exhaust...

HBO Vs. Showtime

August 21st, 2008 9:00am EDT
Big Love

HBO has been showing new movies and producing popular television since 1977, while Showtime focused more on boxing championships and premiering impressive short independent fi...

Monday, June 16

The Middleman (ABC Family, 8 p.m.) - Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost, Medium) brings his Men in Black-like sci-fi comic to television. Judging by the witty and campy previews, this one is a keeper.

Weeds (Showtime, 10 p.m.) - Nancy's back, and she's retransplanted her family to a beachside town by the Tijuana border. With Albert Brooks coming on as Nancy's father-in-law, is it too much to hope for dead hubby Jeffrey Dean Morgan in a flashback or ghostly appearance?
