What to Watch Friday: Disney's Beach Movie, Aziz Ansari Bang!s One Out, Continuum and More
On TV this Friday: Surf’s up in Disney Channel’s Teen Beach Movie, Aziz Ansari parks it at Comedy Bang! Bang!, the Treehouse Master creates wedded bliss in the season finale and Continuum courts disaster. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features, here are seven programs to keep on your radar tonight.
8 pm Teen Beach Movie (Disney Channel) | Ross Lynch (Austin & Ally) and Maia Mitchell (The Fosters) star as teen sweethearts who find themselves swept into a retro surf musical movie called Wet Side Story. Their efforts to find a way back to 2013 are complicated by the romantic interests of the movie’s leading lady and man. (Think High School Musical meets Beach Blanket Bingo meets Back to the Future.) A sneak preview of the new Disney series Liv and Maddie follows at 9:45; get a first look.
9 pm Hawaii Five-0 (CBS) | Repeat to Revisit: This prequel to the series’ pilot finds McGarrett and Catherine crossing into North Korea to retrieve the remains of a fallen friend, which trips McGarrett’s memories of his last mission there. Summer strummer Jimmy Buffett and returning guest star Terry O’Quinn (Lost) appear.
