"Caught" abounds in piscine imagery, but all this fishy business cannot hide its true identity as a strange cross-breeding of "On the Waterfront" and "The Postman Always Rings Twice."At the start of this resolutely gritty film by Robert M. Young, a scuzzy drifter named Nick flees from the cops and slips into a fish shop run by kindly, needy Betty and gruff, salt-of-the-earth Joe. They take Nick in, and he becomes trapped in a net cast by Betty, Joe's much younger, bombshell wife.Betty (the stunning Maria Conchita Alonso)

  I kept thinking as I was screening the new FX series, "Fargo," that it wasn't all that impressive. And then, I looked up and realized I had been watching for three hours straight. I guess it depends on how you define impressive. At best, it's one of the finest new series of the TV year. At worst, it's definitely worth an hour of your time to check out tonight at 10 on FX. But be careful, it's easy to lose yourself as I did in this world of endless snow, hopelessly flat lands, coffee shops, down jackets, small town facades, brutality, blood, drugs and slaughter.

George Hemlet started catching fish with a cane pole when he was just a little lad. That itty-bitty pole wouldn't have helped him much on Wednesday, when the 70-year-old retired machinist from Bel Air caught a Spanish mackerel that broke the state record. Hemlet and six friends were chumming for rockfish aboard Capt. Frank Carver's Loosen Up, out of Deale. It took them just 45 minutes to reach their limit, so they turned their attention to other targets. They landed 50 blues and 39 Spanish mackerel and were idling by Buoy 83 when lightning struck.

At least 20 Baltimore police officers have been caught this year sleeping and congregating while on duty - and two of them have been fired - after the department's brass launched a crackdown.

Hageman ran the 40-yard dash between 4.8 and 4.9 seconds, bench presses 475 pounds and is flexible enough to operate in 3-4 or 4-3 schemes.

With a total of 49, he needs only three more Saturday at Duke to overtake Greg Hill and break the school single-season record.
