March Madness is making me go mad with all of our shows on hiatus! A few more come back this week, but at least we’ll be busy at the theaters and with some new home video releases. See what not to miss this week.

Arrow returns from its short hiatus after the best episode yet left us hanging a few weeks ago. We come back to Starling City with the Huntress, Oliver’s old girlfriend-turned-vigilante from earlier in the season. Sparks will fly as things heat up in this final stretch of the season. (Wednesday at 8pm on the CW)

I know, I know, it wasn’t as good as The Lord of the Rings, but the first part of the Hobbit trilogy was decent enough to have me looking forward to the next two films. Speaking of, if you buy the Blu-ray you get a code for a sneak peek at the next installment, The Desolation of Smaug. (In stores Tuesday)

Ignore the crappy cover art and the fact that this film essentially took home half an Oscar after getting some of the most critical acclaim of any film last year. Zero Dark Thirty will look spectacular on Blu-ray, and that half an Oscar was for Sound Editing, so get your home theater system ready.

2013 has yet to deliver a truly great film so far (although I have yet to see Spring Breakers), and while I doubt The Croods will break the bonds of animation, the trailers are legitimately laugh out loud funny. I hold out that this will be one of the better animated hits this year. (In theaters Friday)

I’m not ready for it to be over! It seems like the sophomore season just started. Probably because it kind of did. With only ten episodes and no breaks between them, Girls flew by this year, once again polarizing audiences every week. The finale, titled Together, will hopefully deliver on that promise. The biggest criticism I have about the season is that the four main characters have barely spent any time together. The show is still great, but a lot of the realism from season one came from Hannah and Marnie’s rocky friendship. And I don’t want to have to wait until next January for season three. (Sunday at 9pm on HBO)
