TO WATCH

MINISERIES PREMIERE The Bible, 8 p.m., History If it sounds a little weird that a channel purportedly about history is featuring a dramatic miniseries of Bible parables narrated by Keith David, just relax. It's not like Big Rig Bounty Hunters or Pawn Stars are really academic fact-finding missions, either.

  3. Please, let 'Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales' be the last

    Movies

    Zombie sharks are jumped by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, our fifth and hopefully final ride through Disney's theme park franchise. You can cut in line ahead of me, if you like.

  4. New podcast: Martha Quinn talks Journey reunion, '80s revival and more

    Blogs

    It's been FOREVER since we had former MTV veejay and all-around '80s queen Martha Quinn on the Stuck in the '80s podcast! Eight years at least! So we're super jazzed to say Martha rejoins us this week to talk about everything '80s.

  5. These days, don't hit the theme park without an app and a phone charger

    Florida

    Emile Crawford stocks two back-up phone battery chargers these days when she takes her kids to Disney World. But she dare not venture into a theme park without a smart phone app, an accessory becoming as necessary as sunscreen in Florida theme parks.

It also lets you pay for food so you don't have to carry a wallet and opens lockers so you don't have to  carry a key. (Universal via AP)
