2. Kylie Minogue, Aphrodite
She's still gorgeous, and she has catchy, mindless songs you can sway and dance to endlessly and a video with a bunch of folks getting down in the street. You'd be crazy not to pick this up! Out now. TIM WONG, B

3. 'Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch'
Who wouldn't want to watch a reality show where women fight for flamboyant Bengals wideout Chad Ochocinco (left, photo by VH1)? "The winner will not only be awarded with a championship ring but the lucky lady will also win the ultimate prize: Chad Ochocinco's heart," said VH1 in a press release. Wait, what does Ochocinco know about championship rings? Series premiere 9 p.m. Sunday, VH1. MATT VENSEL, B

4. 'Eureka'
"Eureka" always has a refreshingly fun approach to sci-fi. Check out what the genius inhabitants of this extraordinary little town are up to next. Season premiere Friday night at 9 on Syfy. TIM WONG, B

5. Big Boi, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty
Aside from Dr. Dre's mythical Detox, Big Boi's Chico Dusty LP has been rap's Chinese Democracy, an oft-delayed album many swore would never see a release date. Sorry, haters, but Outkast's grittier half drops his second solo disc Tuesday. If thumping face-melter "General Patton" is any indication of the album, you had better spruce up the bomb shelter. WESLEY CASE, B

6. O.C. Tuna Tournament
Hey, it's big tuna! No, not Jim Halpert. I mean the scaly creature that tastes great in a salad. Watch as fishermen bring their biggest catch to weigh-in on the docks in Ocean City. If watching big tuna isn't your thing, there will be plenty of food, drinks and entertainment to occupy your time. Friday-Sunday. AUBREY FORNWALT, B

7. Films on the Pier
Fells Point's film series focuses on relatively recent hits. So if you haven't yet seen "The Hangover," "Star Trek" and "The Blind Side," catch up for free at 8:45 p.m. Wednesdays this summer. This week: "Shutter Island." ANNE TALLENT, B

8. 'Despicable Me'
I don't care whether Steve Carell is animated or not ­— he's hilarious in any form. The ridiculous accent also ups the laugh factor. I also approve of Jason Segel, Will Arnett, Kristen Wiig, Julie Andrews and Jemaine Clement voicing characters. Opens Friday. MARISSA GALLO, B

9. Native Berry Festival
Celebrating native plants — blackberries, blueberries, mulberries — is endorsing sustainability and wildlife habitat. Other local favorites at this fest: Brewers Art beer, Maryland wines and a dessert contest. Noon-5 p.m. Saturday. Herring Run Park, Belair Road at Shannon Drive. baywatersheds.org. ANNE TALLENT, B

10. Caribbean Carnival Festival
Authentic cuisine, music (steel drums!) and the traditional island costumed parade. 5-9 p.m. Friday; noon-9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Druid Hill Park. JORDAN BARTEL, B
