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.

Strike Back - HBO
  • HBO
  • Strike Back

Strike Back: Season 1
The manliest series on TV (well, Cinemax) follows the exploits of good-lookin’ counter-terrorism operatives as they punch, kick, shoot, screw, explode and grimace their way around the globe. It’s like 24 meets a firefighter calendar. (HBO)

Grimm: Season 1
A Portland homicide cop (David Guintoli) learns that he’s a descendent of the Grimms, who are charged with keeping the peace between humans and mythological monsters. Better (and more Portland-y) than Once Upon a Time. (Universal)

Bel Ami
Twilight’s Robert Pattinson stars as a suave seducer who … ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! Anyway … (Magnolia)

The Lorax
The Despicable Me producers ruin, er, re-imagine Dr. Seuss’ tale of a boy (Zac Efron) who seeks the help of an orange hairball (Danny DeVito) to win a girl (Taylor Swift). Why not just say, “Remember me from High School Musical?” (Universal)

Parenthood: Season 3
The Braverman family returns for a third season of yelling, brooding, weeping, emoting and making up, with help/hindrance from random guest stars Jason Ritter, John Corbett, and Cee Lo Green as the little baby-armed dinosaur who could. (Universal)
