Ellen Gray's weekend TV picks

* THE LAST SHIP. 9 p.m. Sunday, TNT.

He's in the Navy now. Eric Dane - the late McSteamy of "Grey's Anatomy" - is in hero mode in a Michael Bay production.

* TRUE BLOOD. 9 p.m. Sunday, HBO, and FALLING SKIES, 10 p.m. TNT.

A heads-up for die-hard fans of both shows: They're back (and "True Blood" for its final season).

* THE THREE MUSKETEERS. 9 p.m. Sunday, BBC America.

Yes, they're back, too, and with new adventures inspired by the Alexandre Dumas original. Worth seeing for Peter Capaldi - the new "Doctor Who" - as Cardinal Richelieu.

* FRANKENFOOD. 10 and 10:30 p.m. Sunday, Spike TV.

Philly sandwich mogul Tony Luke Jr. heads to Chicago in the premiere of a competition series spotlighting foods that may or may not belong together. Not for the faint of stomach.

* CRISIS. 8 p.m. Saturday, NBC10.

Am I the only one who's been watching this slightly above-average network thriller? Could be. NBC's burning it off with a two-hour finale - on Saturday.

* ALMOST ROYAL. 10 and 10:30 p.m. Saturday, BBC America.

The network's billing it as its "first reality-comedy series." In the premiere, which follows the Season 2 finale of "Orphan Black," we meet George (Ed Gamble) and Poppy Carlton (Amy Hoggart), purportedly distant relatives of Britain's royal family, on a U.S. tour that includes Philly's Fort Mifflin.
