What to Watch: October 25 - 31

Dead Set - Sunday October 31, 10:30 p.m. ET/PT, Space

This BAFTA-nominated series from the UK is just the latest example of how well Brits do zombies. The show has been running all month, but tonight you can catch all five episodes back-to-back. The premise is simple and elegant: a zombie outbreak coincides with the filming of a new season of 'Big Brother' and the contestants have no idea what's happening in the outside world. It falls onto Kelly, a young production assistant, to beat back the hordes of the undead from the studio. This is gore-heavy-- definitely not for kids.

Glee - Tuesday October 26, 8 p.m. ET/PT, Global/Fox

New Directions takes on the 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' with guest star Meatloaf (who was in the original film) on hand to cringe every time they use the Autotune on what is supposed to be a story about freedom over perfectionism, but I digress. Or do I? Let me check my notes.... no, no... all in order here: that is indeed the entire plot of this episode. Carry on.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition - Sunday October 31, 8 p.m. ET/PT, Ciytv/ABC

Some shows just don't seem suited for a Halloween special, but 'EM:HE' actually seems to score on this one. Tonight, they'll rebuilding the basement of the Oregon School for the Deaf, famous in the area for their amazing haunted house. Unfortunately, it doesn't just look scary down in the basement, it really is dangerous. Enter Rob Zombie (really) and Marlee Matlin and the rest of the crew to turn the whole thing around in just seven days.

Red - Saturday October 30, 8 p.m. ET/PT, Showcase

Part of a Canwest/SyFy project to update fairy tales into modern stories, this October-appropriate film updates us on the descendants of Little Red Riding Hood (who apparently only delivered cookies as a diversion from her real job killing werewolves). The latest Red is a police detective who is forced to reveal the truth about her background to her fiance when a major wolfish battle erupts in her hometown.
