ALAN SMALL Ñ TV

Chilling out with Deadliest Catch

It may be a dubious distinction, but Deadliest Catch, in the midst of its ninth season, continues to prove it's the king of reality TV. Its "stars" might be the saltiest of Alaskan king crab fishermen, but the dangers of the sea, the seemingly spontaneous conflicts between crew members and the economic realities of poor fishing make for great viewing. On Tuesday (June 11, Discovery), the opilio crab season begins -- during the depths of an frigid Aleutian winter.

RANDALL KING Ñ MOVIES

Who says filmmaking is collaborative?

Sometimes filmmakers can be downright competitive. At least that's the premise of the Cinematheque fundraiser Bands vs. Filmmakers III on Thursday, June 6 at the West End Cultural Centre at 8 p.m. Host Ace Burpee officiates this evening of film and music featuring musical acts Mariachi Ghost, Mahogany Frog, Julia Ryckman (right) and Flying Fox & the Hunter Gatherers trading creative blows with filmmakers Doreen Girard, Leslie Supnet, Ian Bawa and Nick Friesen. Tickets are $25 at the door.

MORLEY WALKER / BOOKS

And way fewer words than any of the novels

The obvious question, after the slayings of Robb and Catelyn Stark in last weekend's episode of the HBO series Game of Thrones, is what kind of monster would do this to his beloved characters? The answer might be found in the new comic book biography George R.R. Martin: The Power Behind the Throne from Bluewater Productions in the U.S.

KEVIN PROKOSH / ARTS

And the winner is ...

The 2013 Winnipeg Arts Awards will be handed out Thursday at the Mayor's Luncheon for the Arts taking place at the Fort Garry Hotel. Awards and cash prizes will be handed out to a rising star in the arts, a mid-career artist making a mark, an arts champion, an artist or administrator making a difference and outstanding volunteer. For the first time, a Lifetime Achievement Award will be bestowed on actress Doreen Brownstone, right.
