Welcome to your spring sporting season — the NBA playoffs are underway, the NHL’s postseason close to beginning and the NFL draft is this weekend. Jurassic Park is back in 3D, and Dead Island has returned to consoles with the Riptide edition. Don’t like sports, or games? There’s always Stonados (yes, that’s tornadoes, with stones in them — Stonados) on Syfy. Look below for the highlights this week, followed after the break by our weekly listing of what to look out for in TV, Blu-ray and videogames.
With most of the first round NBA playoff series manifesting blowouts and probably sweeps, this weekend’s NFL draft is the most exciting thing on the schedule for sports fans (unless you think Chael Sonnen really has a shot against Jon Jones, of course). No matter how well your team performed (or disappointed) last year, there’s always room for hope in the form of this year’s draft pick. The first three rounds are again spread over two days in prime time, so you can watch large men in suits walk across the stage to shake hands with (or bear hug) the commissioner.
