What to Watch This Week: Captain America: Civil War, Person of Interest, and More
< >

Our favorite shows are all entering their final stretch, but luckily we have some of our favorite summer shows returning at the same time, most notably Person of Interest, which will sadly come to an end after this season. But even more exciting is geek film this week, because it's time for the movie we've all been waiting for: Captain America: Civil War. Unlike another superhero battle that shall remain nameless, Civil War 100% lives up to the hype, and we can't wait to watch (and re-watch) Marvel's latest offering.
