We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Banshee - HBO
  • HBO
  • Banshee

Banshee: Season 1
The best action-thriller series you didn’t see this year, about an ex-con (Antony Starr) posing as the sheriff of corrupt Amish town Banshee to get back his woman (Ivana Milicevic) and his diamonds. Gritty, twisty, sexy and violent as hell. (HBO)

Black Rock
Three friends (Kate Bosworth, Lake Bell and The League’s Katie Aselton) weekend on a remote island, which sounds like a great idea until creepy war-vet hunters show up and things get all rape-y and murder-y and Deliverance-y. (Lionsgate)

G.I. Joe: Retaliation
Not only does the G.I. Joe squad (including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Channing “The Melon” Tatum) have to fight off the threat of COBRA, but they also have to put up with shit from their own government. Thanks again, Obama! (Paramount)

Touched By an Angel: Season 8
The shark-jumping 2001 season wherein a trainee angel (Valerie Bertinelli) joins the gang, along with other notable guest stars like Neil Patrick Harris, Zachary Quinto, Toby Keith and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir (sadly, not together). (Paramount)

Under the Bed
Two young brothers (Jonny Weston and Gattlin Griffith) join forces to fight off a literal monster under the bed—and their stupid parents are no help at all! From the producers of V/H/S, so you know shut-in horror bloggers looove it. (ANconnect)
