Adventureland
From the director of Superbad … comes something nowhere near as funny. An ’80s teen (Jesse Eisenberg) is stuck working at an amusement park for the summer; hormonal angst and that Twilight chick (Kristen Stewart) ensue. Miramax.com

Booker: The Complete Series
All 21 episodes of the 21 Jump Street spinoff watched by about 21 people! Richard Grieco investigates suspicious insurance claims while being nowhere near as hot as Johnny Depp. Yeah, hard to believe Fox canceled it. MillcreekEnt.com

Californication: Season 2
Debauched author Hank Moody (David Duchovny) signs on as the biographer to a debauched record producer—thus, debauchery ensues. Despite this, Season 2 shows actual signs of (ack!) emotional growth. Highly recommended, anyway. Sho.com

Life: Season 2
The further L.A. adventures of reinstated ex-con cop Charlie Crews (Damien Lewis) and his impossibly hot partner (impossibly hot Sarah Shahi). It was the network’s best crime show in years, so of course NBC canceled it. NBC.com

Sonny’s Big Break
Apparently, there’s this show on the Disney Channel called Sonny With a Chance, starring Demi Lovato as a Midwestern teen who joins a TV sketch show for teens—but they all turn out to be assholes! Teens! Assholes! Who knew? Disney.com
