Bruce Greenwood has a Baltimore connection he doesn't even remember. From 1986 to 1988, he played the egotistical, self-centered Dr. Seth Griffin on NBC's "St. Elsewhere." And Dr. Griffin was a Hopkins med school grad. "That's really flipping back through the files a long way," Greenwood laughs, regarding his interviewer at Washington's St. Regis Hotel with a look that says, "You've got way too much free time on your hands." Of course, he's too polite to come out and say something so cruel.

The determinedly cynical needn't bother, but just about everyone else should love Eight Below, in which eight supremely gorgeous sled dogs are forced to make do for themselves on the frozen Antarctic field after being left behind by their owners. Sure, the movie has human stars: Paul Walker is the guide who cares for the dogs. Jason Biggs is his doofus friend (who will surely come through in a pinch). Bruce Greenwood is the scientist whose mania for discovery forces everyone to take chances they shouldn't.

How's this for a lineup?: Kate Capshaw, Stockard Channing, Rebecca De Mornay, Mia Farrow, Peta Wilson, S. Epatha Merkerson, Irma P. Hall, Linda Hamilton, Glenne Headly, Allison Janney, Elle Macpherson, Camryn Manheim, Tina Lifford and Lynn Whitfield. That's the cast for the Showtime miniseries, "A Girl Thing," and the impressive thing about it is that most of these actresses deliver strong performances rather than walking through a superficial role and collecting a check, as is often the case in big-cast mini-series.

Ever tried your darndest to avoid hearing about the plots twists of a movie that you're planning to see, only to have some unthinking clod give it away?The makers of "Double Jeopardy" suffer from that problem, except it's one of their own making, because the trailers that have been airing for weeks in theaters and on television pretty much reveal all the relevant twists and turns in the film.Nothing happens to Ashley Judd, a wife who is framed for the murder of her husband, or Tommy Lee Jones, as the parole officer who pursues her, that the trailers haven't let the viewer in on already.

The thinking behind "Fathers' Day," Ivan Reitman's new comedy, is diabolically obvious: put all-universe funnymen Robin Williams and Billy Crystal on the same screen, and theaters across the country will be rendered oxygen-deprived from laughter.Hold the calls to 911. "Fathers' Day" is a perfectly pleasant buddy film, but it lacks the merciless, rat-a-tat hilarity that leaves you gasping for air.Williams and Crystal are not the weaknesses. They could each make balancing the checkbook into high entertainment.

There used to be an old saw in television that you couldn't do a successful series about newspapermen because they're observers, not participants in stories. But producer Stephen J. Cannell proves this to be wrong Sunday night on NBC with "The Great Pretender" (9 p.m., Channel 2).In the fast-paced two-hour drama, which has the makings of a good series, Bruce Greenwood ("St. Elsewhere") plays Earl Brattigan, a columnist reinstated at his newspaper after a three-year suspension. A judge has ruled that his publisher, Owen Milner (Donald Moffat)

As for what else is on:"Ink" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13) -- Everybody's anxious to get their column on the front page on the 100th anniversary issue of the New York Sun (Sun? Now there's a great name for a newspaper). That includes Mike (Ted Danson), who decides to write a column about the paper's first female editor, who just happens to be his ex-wife (and current boss)
