Matt's Weekend Picks: April 8-10

Being Human

Being Human (Saturday, 9/8c, BBC America)
So much crisis to contend with in the finale to the excellent third season of the original (and superior) version of the supernatural thriller. Mitchell has committed the ultimate no-no in vampire world — he's been arrested — and given that the episode title is "The Wolf-Shaped Bullet," there's even more desperation in his need to learn how the revived (and now evil again) Herrick survived the sort of werewolf slaughter that has been predicted for Mitchell. Meanwhile, Nina fights for her life after Herrick's slaughter at the B&B and Nina encounters Lia in Purgatory as she seeks to avert the dire prophecy.

Paul Wesley Readies for Battle on The Vampire Diaries

The Vampire Diaries

Paul Wesley has the prerequisite young Hollywood muscles and tats. But that image of cool is softened by a self-deprecating sense of humor punctuated by frequent chuckling. And when the 28-year-old New Jersey native talks about his girlfriend — Pretty Little Liars' Torrey DeVitto — he sweetly says, "I'm lucky to be with her." That balance of bad boy and gentle romantic has kept fans swooning for Wesley's heroic bloodsucker Stefan Salvatore on The Vampire Diaries. "Paul is very funny, charming, winning and a very subtle actor," says exec producer Kevin Williamson. "He's just brilliant." On April 7, The CW hit returns with Stefan trying desperately to keep his human love Elena (Nina Dobrev) safe from Klaus, the übervamp who's hell-bent on sacrificing her. We asked Wesley to give us some scoop about Stefan — and the actor who plays him... read more

A Wide Open Field Takes a Swing at The Masters, Golf's Biggest Event

Ryo Ishikawa

There may be no better opportunity for a first-time winner to take home the Masters crown this year. "Many of the past champions aren't in good form, so watch out for the guys that haven't won or performed well at Augusta before," says CBS golf analyst Ian Baker-Finch. Young guns such as Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Ryo Ishikawa and Jason Day "have no fear — they feel they can win," golf's most prestigious tournament Baker-Finch says. "They're not going to be too awed by Augusta National." Neither are the players who are "getting towards the twilight of their careers... read more
