Today's TV

April 14, 1997|By Chris Kaltenbach | Chris Kaltenbach,SUN STAFF

Is this the end of "Relativity"?

"Relativity" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- The season closes with Isabel and Leo maybe on the skids. Could old boyfriend Everett be making the comeback of the year? Has Isabel really decided she needs to do without men for a while? And what about those tangled romantic webs her sisters have weaved? Of course, all of this begs the bigger question: Do enough people care to bring this show back for a sophomore season? Don't bet on it. ABC.

"Boston Common" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- The campus is thrown into an uproar when the publisher of a men's magazine (Wendie Malick, of "Dream On" and "Just Shoot Me") arrives on campus to shoot a pictorial on the women of Harrington College. Wyleen (Hedy Burress) is especially incensed until she's offered $5,000 to pose. NBC.

"Reality Bites" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke, Janeane Garofalo and Steve Zahn are college friends trying to cope with life in the '90s. Further complicating matters: Ryder (who desperately wants a career in television) is being pursued by both Hawke and Ben Stiller (who also directed), who plays an MTV-type executive. ABC.

"Nightscream" (9 p.m.-11 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- Don't you just hate it when the soul of a murder victim possesses you and won't allow you to rest until the killer is apprehended? Well, now you know how Candace Cameron Bure feels here. NBC.

"The American Experience" (9 p.m.-10: 30 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67) -- Nominated for a 1995 Oscar, "Troublesome Creek: A Midwestern" is the story of an Iowa family, the Jordans, struggling to retain their farm and some semblance of their way of life. The film, by their daughter, Jeanne, and her husband, Steven Ascher, is wonderful, a tragedy that at the same time acknowledges the indomitability of the human spirit: Somehow, the Jordans find a way to survive, even though it involves a 180-degree turn in their life. Anyone who isn't moved by this film has forgotten how to feel. PBS.

"Body Human 2000" (10 p.m.-11 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Christine Lahti of "Chicago Hope" is the host for this look at some amazing medical procedures, including CPR being performed on a fetus and doctors treating a man infected by flesh-eating bacteria. CBS.

Cable

"The Pink Panther" (6 p.m.-8 p.m., TCM) -- From the days (1964) when the idea was still fresh and the results riotous: Peter Sellers plays (for the first time) the hilariously inept Inspector Clouseau, whose accent alone set the French back 100 years. Here, he's on the trail of a stolen pink diamond. Plus, David Niven makes a fine jewel thief.

"Biography" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., repeats midnight-1 a.m., A&E) -- F. Scott Fitzgerald, the chronicler of jazz-age America who spent several years living (and drinking) in Baltimore, is profiled.
