There was plenty to disdain about the former Sci-Fi Channel’s in the years since it changed names to the eminently mockable “Syfy.” The Ghost Hunters and the innumerable “paranormal reality shows” that followed. The philosophy that saw them distance themselves from the very genre that gave them their name. One of the few programs from that dark time that I actually really enjoy is the makeup competition Face Off, which returned with new episodes a couple of weeks ago. This week the series is following its common trend of tying in with a popular genre property — The Hunger Games. The artists will be faced with a “predator challenge” (no, not that Predator), and Hunger Games actor Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) will serve as a guest judge.
Face Off‘s “Let the Games Begin” airs Tuesday at 9/8c on Syfy. You can check out the rest of this week’s TV picks below, including new episodes of The 100, The Flash, Helix, and 12 Monkeys!
