Chuck Norris ought to go back to the karate formula. He did much better with those films than he does with action movies.His newest film is ''The Hitman,'' and it's a muddled, murky thing. It does have atmosphere, but it is also excessive and in some cases, badly acted.It has an added liability in Michael Parks who, as a bad cop, talks like Eddie Murphy -- all the genitalia business. Murphy can get away with it. He's younger and funnier. Parks, at his age, simply sounds silly.Norris plays a New York cop who is set up by his partner (Parks)

Yes, Rick Perry might seem a little, well, out there with some of his public statements. But the Texas governor has something that our current commanded-in-chief lacks: Overt machismo.  And this cannot be underestimated. Macho men have a long history of winning elections. George W. Bush played the macho guy well, always clearing brush on his Texas ranch and challenging terrorists with tough-guy statements ("Bring 'em on," "Smoke 'em out"). Vladimir Putin is so macho his vacations include tiger hunting, judo tournaments and riding horses.

So, do you believe that "Seinfeld" news?No, not the fact that the Four Horsemen of Neuroticness - Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer - are finally riding off into the sunset after this season. That probably should have happened a couple of seasons ago, before the show stopped being really funny.No, I'm talking about the fact that the NBC brass - the same geniuses who sent Letterman packing a few years back - proudly announced that they were ready to pay Jerry Seinfeld $5 million per episode to crank out one more season of shows about nothing.

While you frantically found chairs to reserve your parking spot, we kept up with what was happening in the world of celebs not slammed with snow. Here's your pop culture week in review: SEXY DINOS: Discovery's “Tyrannosaurus Sex.” From the press release: "It shows dinosaur sex in all its glory. How did a ferocious T-Rex woo his lady? How did a female Titanosaur support the weight of a male who was as long as a four-story building is high?" Uh, maybe Jurassic yoga helped?

Just when you thought a TV season defined by Amy Fisher movies and "Dateline NBC" couldn't get any worse, along comes Chuck Norris in "Walker, Texas Ranger," at 9 tonight on WBAL (Channel 11).At first, this new CBS series about a mod- ern-day Texas Ranger seems as if might be camp the way the "Batman" series of the 1960s was. In part, that's because of the way Norris makes his entrance as Ranger Cordell Walker, standing in the doorway of a cantina in Mexico.When the scene opens, it's not clear that it's the great Chuck Norris standing there.

LAST WEEK, Chuck Norris, the Grade-D former action "star" - and Mike Huckabee mouthpiece - declared that he thought John McCain was "too old" to become president - he would be 72 at the time of inauguration - and "too frail" to withstand the stresses of the office. Norris actually said he assumed McCain would die in office and the vice president would have to finish his term. Two points to make here. One - Chuck Norris is an idiot. I don't mean idiot like intelligent people doing foolish things.

Chuck Norris tries hard to get bad in "The Hitman," but the amiable Oklahoman is about as bad as Cheerios in milk. His lack of real menace somewhat undercuts the sinister intent of the film; you keep expecting him to put on a smile button and begin chirping psychobabble about the power of a positive attitude.The movie, directed by his brother Aaron ("An Aaron Norris Film," the credits proudly declare), is a fairly lackadaisical steal from "A Fistful of Dollars," which itself stole from Kurosawa's "Yojimbo," so the spirit of cheerful larceny isn't inappropriate.

Political prognosticators may think the Republican presidential nomination has been locked up, but fortunately, not all the candidates agree. Otherwise, CNN would have an hour of empty space to air tonight, as the remaining combatants take to the air in anticipation of next week's Super Tuesday primaries.* "Roseanne" (6 p.m.-6: 30 p.m., WTTG, Channel 5) -- Sharon Stone plays a woman who drinks too much and lives in a trailer park. Say what you will, it's not like anything she's played on the big screen.

About eight years ago, Barry Williams, aka Greg Brady, wrote a book about what it was like, being a kid actor on "The Brady Bunch," that early-1970s sitcom that somehow has become a cultural touchstone for anyone who grew up around that time. Light and airy as they come, the book's biggest revelation was that Barry was no different than every other male pre-teen alive at the time: he, too, had a crush on Maureen McCormick. But unlike the rest of us, he had the pleasure of working alongside her everyday, since she was playing his sister, Marcia.

MPT invites you to leave Maryland behind for a night and travel to the Galapagos Islands, without setting foot out the door. I'd take them up on it."Bronco Billy" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) -- Great fun, as Clint Eastwood plays the leader of a poor-man's Wild West show, and Sondra Locke plays the spoiled rich gal who comes to love him anyway. It's not the best film Clint has ever made, but possibly the most pleasant."Galapagos: A World Apart" (8 p.m.-11 p.m., MPT, Channels 22 and 67)

HE WAS a great artiste, dedicated to his calling, a guru of a powerful American culture. Yet he was alone when he died, except for his surfboards.He was a beach bum, a hedonistic "hodad" in the local argot. He spent his life "hanging 10," searching for the perfect wave. If you were a surfer, or even one of the tens of millions of Highway Surfers who never set foot on a board, Dewey Weber was a god, the Pan of the Pipeline.The Beach Boys' music and Hollywood movies promoted the Southern California surfing culture across the country.
