Today's TV

February 20, 1996|By Chris Kridler | Chris Kridler,SUN STAFF

* "Wings" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Helen is dismayed when she hears that an ex-boyfriend is coming to visit. She's happily married to Joe, and -- whoops -- she never told Davis that their engagement was off. NBC.

* "Nova: War Machines of Tomorrow" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., MPT, Channels 22, 67) -- The science show looks at the next generation of "smart" weapons -- "brilliant" weapons that can discern types of targets. Strategists discuss lessons learned in the Persian Gulf war and look at the future. PBS.

* "Generation X" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- Matt Frewer, who seems to be typecast as an ultra-cool sci-fi dude ("Max Headroom," "Lawnmower Man 2") despite his funny but short-lived sitcom "Doctor, Doctor" of some years back, plays a bad guy as the "X-Men" comics come to life in a new TV movie. Fox.

* "Home Improvement" (9 p.m.-9:30 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Country crooner Alan Jackson appears as himself, singing on

Tim's show, "Tool Time." Could it be sweeps season? ABC.

* "Sins of Silence" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Sexual trauma as drama: Yep, it's another TV movie. Lindsay Wagner portrays a former nun who counsels a rape victim (Holly Marie Combs) and then is jailed when she refuses to give up the teen-ager's subpoenaed records to the defense attorney. CBS.


* "Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist" (8 p.m.-8:30 p.m., Comedy Central) -- Have you caught this quirky, animated comedy yet, the winner of a CableACE award? With dry humor, comedians in the guise of neurotic patients (not too much of a stretch, one can imagine) visit the office of Dr. Katz, a low-key analyst. Check it out.

* "Trial by Jury" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., Cinemax) -- It might not be good, but the comparison with the current Demi Moore movie, "The Juror," might be interesting. Joanne Whalley-Kilmer stars in this 1994 film as a juror who's harassed during a mob trial. Sound familiar?
