New this week (2/13/13):

Intelligence, Season 1 (Canadian)

A father, businessman and drug smuggler, Jimmy Reardon, feels the heat from outlaw bikers muscling in on his territory. Mary Spalding, head of Vancouver's Organized Crime Unit, fears her rivals in the intelligence community more than criminals. Together, they form an alliance that threatens to undo them both.

After twelve-year-old Cyril's single father rejects him, the compassion of a stranger who agrees to take care of him helps him move forward.

Police are baffled as cell phone users are being shot in the middle of their conversations and mobile phone towers are being blown-up throughout England. This four-part thriller reveals a terrorist plot with a ruthless millionaire in the middle of it.

Perks of Being a Wallflower
A high school freshman, always watching from the sidelines, is taken under the wings of two seniors who welcome him to the real world.

Robot & Frank
Frank is an aging ex-jewel thief, and his two grown children are worried that he can no longer care for himself. In deciding what to do with Frank, the most likely option appears to be putting him in a nursing home. But Franks’ son comes up with another option: buy Frank a walking, talking robot programmed to look after him and improve his physical and mental health. Frank resists the robot at first, but he warms to it after realizing that it could be the perfect heist companion.

The Sessions 
Paralyzed and confined to an iron lung since childhood, poet-journalist Mark O'Brien has overcome adversity time and time again. But now, at age 38, he faces his toughest challenge yet: losing his virginity. With the help of a beautiful therapist, a sympathetic priest, and his own unbridled sense of optimism and humor, Mark embarks on an extraordinary personal journey to discover the wondrous pleasures that make life worth living.
