Remembered today as the series that introduced Bruce Willis, "Moonlighting" featured Cybill Shepherd as Maddie Hayes, a suddenly impoverished fashion model who finds that one of her few remaining possessions is the Blue Moon Detective Agency, headed by David Addison (Willis). "Moonlighting" was responsible for some of television's finer hours, including a black-and-white film noir episode. At its worst, "Moonlighting" was a self-indulgent mess. But "Moonlighting" at its best is worth watching -- which you can do today during Bravo's six-episode marathon, starting at 1 p.m. Beginning tomorrow, "Moonlighting" will air weeknights at 7 on Bravo.

Can a mediocre film be made into a good TV show? "Dangerous Minds" has already been the former; can it become the latter?"Dangerous Minds" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WMAR, Channel 2) -- Annie Potts (who's OK, but no Michelle Pfeiffer) is a teacher so good, so strong, so committed, you wonder if she's vulnerable to kryptonite. She also inhabits a fantasy world where she's able to stare down gang members and nonchalantly plant a kiss on the cheek of a sleeping student (wonder what the school-system lawyers in B'more would say)
