Each Thursday, the Avenue will dish out the best in entertainment. From the silver screen to hidden Internet gems, check out this week’s top picks.

See It: “Mr. Peabody & Sherman”

We’re not sure if anything can beat the adorable talking snowman from “Frozen,” but a genius talking dog might come close. Mr. Peabody, an accomplished pooch, uses his time machine to travel with his pal, Sherman. But when Sherman takes the time machine out for a joyride to impress a girl (chicks dig hot rides) he accidentally rips a hole in the universe. If you don’t dig the movie, at least “Frozen” came out on DVD on Tuesday.

Hear It: Overholt

If you’re a fan of Wilco, give Overholt’s “Goner” a listen. Iron and Wine meets My Morning Jacket on his debut LP, which showcases a soothing, contemporary vibe. Download the four available pre-release tracks from “Goner” on noisetrade.com. Oh, and it’s free. He’s asking for a $1 tip, but I think we can manage that.

Watch It: 100th episode of “Glee”

Sure, the TV musical comedy might have lost some momentum over the past few seasons (OK, does anyone even watch this anymore?), but for the original fans out there, the 100th episode should bring back some familiar faces. We can’t keep up with the cast of new characters and high school drama, but it will be nice to see Queen Bee Quinn Fabray back in McKinley High halls.

Click It: First Kiss

This short video of strangers kissing has taken over the Internet. It’s cute and awkward and somehow really interesting to watch. It’s almost like watching a trainwreck of a blind date go down from across the room. If you’ve already seen the original clip, we recommend viewing some parodies, especially Jimmy Fallon’s “First Lick.”
