Out with old, ready for new

Best bet

September 17, 1997|By Chris Kaltenbach

A trio of season-ending repeats from last season can only mean one thing: premiere month is hard upon us, and new episodes can't be far beyond.

Unfortunately, that's not true of NBC's "Wings" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11), which repeats May's season- and series-ending finale, as the gang goes on a wild hunt for riches after finding an old suitcase containing a cryptic note from the late father of Joe (Tim Daly) and Brian (Steven Weber).

But both CBS' "The Nanny" (8 p.m.-8: 30 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) and NBC's "3rd Rock From the Sun" (9 p.m.-10 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) are coming back. Singer Celine Dion has a cameo in the former, as The Woman With the Most Irritating Voice in the World flies to London, in hopes of consummating her relationship with Maxwell (Charles Shaughnessy).

In the latter, Dick, Harry, Sally and Tommy experience their first dreams in this offbeat season finale with highly touted 3-D effects. The show's a hoot, even if the effects aren't great (and you need special glasses for them, anyway).
