How was your first week of April? We had a busy one over at The Bonus View! In case you missed anything, we have it all encapsulated here in one easily digestible recap of The Bonus View. This week we covered everything from new theatrical releases, to the premieres of new television seasons. So sit back, relax, and let us guide you through the high-def extravaganza of the week that was.
The battles rage on as iconic television characters go head-to-head in a giant battle-to-the-death tournament. On Monday we had a very close call between Eric Northman of 'True Blood' and John Locke from 'Lost.' In the end Locke ended up pulling it out, but just barely. In the other matchup the universe's most famous Klingon, Worf, pummeled Al Capone into submission.
On Wednesday, Michael Knight from 'Knight Rider' was pitted against the world's scariest drug dealer, Omar Little from 'The Wire.' Needless to say, Little demolished him. In the other Wednesday matchup we have a very close race which is too close to call at the moment. Angel and Sarah Walker from 'Chuck' are only separated by one vote right now. So make sure to go cast your vote there because every vote counts.

Wondering about upcoming releases? We're getting close to the summer movie season and E has a few trailers in this week's Trailer Park that you might want to take a look at. The new trailer for the remake of 'Total Recall' has finally been released. If you need your sci-fi with a bit of odd-ball humor then maybe you should check out 'Iron Sky.' Nazis attacking from the dark side of the moon, what could be better, right?
Also, we all know that you've been dying to see who won big at the Razzies. In case you didn't hear the outcomes, Josh has a complete rundown of the event which honors the worst that Hollywood has to offer.
This week we covered a couple of TV's big season premieres. Check out Aaron's thoughts on 'The Killing's season two premiere, along with what Josh thought of 'Game of Thrones' season premiere. We also have recaps of 'Fringe,' and 'Awake' if you're looking to find out about what's on TV.
In last Friday's Weekend Roundtable we discussed our favorite dystopian films. What are yours? Please let us know.
In the Mid-Week Poll we wanted to find out where you buy most of your Blu-rays. Is it online or at a physical store?
Well, that's it for this week. As always we thank you, dear readers, because without you none of this would be possible. Have a great weekend and we'll see you back here on The Bonus View bright and early Monday morning to continue talking about anything and everything related to high definition entertainment.
