A saucer of the paranormal, a cup of the usual weirdness

Today's TV

March 19, 1996|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,SUN STAFF

Is there something out there? The folks at UPN seem to think so.

"Seinfeld" (7: 30 p.m.-8 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) Jerry, Elaine, Kramer and George can't remember where they've parked their car. Who among us can't identify with that?

"Wings" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) Edward Herrmann, who in previous roles has been FDR, the founder of St. Eligius Hospital in Boston and Herman Munster (he also, unfortunately, was once Richie Rich's dad), guest stars as an architect hired to design Helen and Joe's house. NBC.

"John Grisham's The Client" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) Naomi Judd puts down her songbook long enough to play a psychologist trying to get inside a defendant's head. CBS.

"Moesha" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) Cute, if you like cute, and pretty enjoyable. The series details the life of a spirited 16-year-old played by singer Brandy Norwood. Tonight's repeat of the pilot episode should prove a good barometer of whether it's something you and the kids could enjoy. UPN.

"The Paranormal Borderline" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) Jonathan Frakes, better known as Cmdr. Riker on "Star Trek: The Next Generation," is the host for this weekly look at unexplained phenomena. Tonight's episode looks at the oft-repeated tale of a UFO that reportedly crashed in the New Mexico dessert in 1947 and was recovered by the Air Force. UPN.

"sex, lies and videotape" (3 a.m.-5 a.m. tomorrow, WBFF, Channel 45) It could be interesting to watch this on free TV, just to see how much of it gets past the censors. The film doesn't show much skin, but it has plenty of saucy language and a central character who videotapes women talking about sex.


"Raiders of the Lost Ark" (8: 05 p.m.-10: 35 p.m., TBS) Make sure your seat belts are fastened, then sit back and enjoy the ride. Of course, it's too bad that commercials continually interrupt the action, but that's the price you have to pay.

"The Harvey Girls" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., TCM) Judy Garland probably never made a bad film. This one, about the women recruited by the Fred Harvey Co. in the 1800s to serve as waitresses in their restaurants, falls somewhere in the middle in terms of quality, but it features a great song (and wonderful choreography) in "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe."

"Bewitched" (9: 30 p.m.-10 p.m., Nickelodeon) Sure, this one's a little out of season, but what the heck, enjoy it anyway. Suppose you were a witch and some little boy kept telling you there was no such thing as Santa Claus? You'd take him to the North Pole and prove him wrong, right? Obviously, you and Samantha are on the same wavelength.
