'In the Womb':

In addition to being a comic book nerd, I'm also a science show geek. This Sunday, National Geographic Channel tracks the fascinating lives of identical twins from the very start. Using top-notch graphics, a documentary explores what makes them the same and what makes them different. In the Womb: Identical Twins airs at 9 p.m. Sunday on National Geographic Channel.

'Caroline, or Change':

Tony Kushner, who crafted the two-part epic Angels in America, takes a lighter tone, kind of, in this semiautobiographical musical set in Louisiana during the civil rights movement.

'Home Alone':

When movies become pop sensations, they acquire an entertainment value that goes way beyond their quality as pictures. That's the case with Home Alone, whose signature image of Macaulay Culkin slapping his own face and screaming encapsulated madcap brattiness for the '90s, if not the ages. The Charles Theatre, 1711 N. Charles St., has scheduled it for midnight tomorrow and noon Saturday. Admission is $6. Call 410-727-3456 or go to thecharles.com.

pop music

All Mighty Senators:

As the All Mighty Senators mix disparate styles, including ska, punk and '70s R&B, the Baltimore band always incorporates a sense of whimsy. Although its sound is distinct, the group's approach swirls with obvious influences, such as Curtis Mayfield and the Pretenders. See the band at 8 p.m. Saturday at the 8X10, 10 E. Cross St. Tickets are $8 and are available through Ticketmaster by calling 410-547-7328 or going to ticketmaster.com.
