This Week's TV: You are not ready for Alien Surf Girls!

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

This week's TV includes the extra-long season finales of Game of Thrones and Touch. Sir Patrick Stewart tells us all about the bizarre superpowers of some animals, and Henry Rollins talks weird animal religions. Adventure Time has its most freaktastic episode yet. But also, there is a brand new epic about alien girls, who come to Earth... to surf!

Check out tons of clips from Touch, and the first 10 minutes of Teen Wolf season two.


Adventure Time (7:30 PM, Cartoon Network)
You ever wonder just how far this show can go before it leaves the domain of "happy kid show" behind? Here's this week's episode synopsis:

"Princess Monster Wife" When Ooo's princesses start losing body parts left and right, Finn and Jake investigate.


And check out a brand new, somewhat disturbing clip! That's followed by a new Regular Show, the premiere of Annoying Orange, and a new Mad.

It's a brand new show where Henry Rollins takes a look at how different cultures around the world interact with animals, including animal worship and strange customs. And National Geographic Wild is so proud of this new series, they're airing three episodes back-to-back on a holiday Monday.



Alien Surf Girls (Teen Nick, 7:30 PM):
The premiere of a brand new show, which is exactly what it sounds like. We were all set to write off this week's television as kind of a dead zone apart from Game of Thrones — but then we saw this, which airs all week. Apparently it was called Lightning Point in Australia. Here's the blurb for the series and the first episode:

When Zoey and Kiki, two irrepressible girls from another galaxy become castaways in the quiet, Australian seaside town of Lightning Point, they recruit local girl Amber to keep them undercover. But the whole town is abuzz with the sighting of aliens and the girls soon realize that they may not be the first intergalactic visitors...

Episode One: "Wipeout" When Zoey and Kiki, two irrepressible girls from another galaxy, land in Lightning Point their dreams of surfing the waves of Earth's oceans have finally come true. But when Luca finds the key to their ship, the Plasma Card, they're forced to enlist the help of local teen Amber to get it back - a twist with explosive results!

Alien Surf Girls (Teen Nick, 7:30 PM):
Your new obsession and ours returns. Here's the synopsis for episode two:

"Microwave" Kiki and Zoey are stranded on Earth. Just as they're starting to settle in at Amber's house, Zoey catches the eye of surf king Brandon - and when Brandon invites her to a barbeque, Zoey realizes that not everyone is happy to see new faces in town.

Alien Surf Girls (Teen Nick, 7:30 PM):
Here's the third episode of the week's best new show about surfing:

"Wires Crossed" When Kiki and Zoey use the primitive school satellite dish to send an alien signal, Amber with the help of pet Police Dog Piper, will have to think quickly to stop the school being overrun by canines.

Touch (Fox, 8 PM):
It's the season finale of this show about a mute super-kid, which is getting a second season where Terra Nova and Alcatraz failed to. Here's what to expect from "Gyre Pt 1 & 2":

As the Aster Corporation increases their interest in Jake, Martin joins forces with Abigail (guest star Catherine Dent) as the stakes of Jake's custody escalate. When Avram (guest star Bohdi Elfman) reiterates to Martin that Jake and Amelia, a presumed dead girl with similar characteristics as Jake, are connected, Martin sets out on a passionate mission to uncover the truth. Meanwhile, circumstances intensify when Lucy (guest star Maria Bello) enters the picture and seemingly unrelated events are tied together.
