BEDAZZLED -- 20th Century Fox / $19.98 The Devil worries that he's been slipping lately. In his heyday, he brags, he invented all seven deadly sins in one afternoon. But recently, "all I've come up with is advertising." Bedazzled, the 1967 comedy starring Dudley Moore and Peter Cook, is one of the funniest films ever made, and its DVD release seems ideally timed for April Fool's Day. (Well, OK, technically, it's a smidge late - the video won't actually be offered for sale until Tuesday.

How important is the new police-musical "Cop Rock" to ABC?So important that the network has whipped up a half-hour special tonight in hopes of getting "Twin Peaks" fans interested in "Cop Rock.""Twin Peaks & Cop Rock: Behind the Scenes," which airs at 9:30 tonight on WJZ-TV (Channel 13), will feature interviews with David Lynch and Mark Frost, the creators of "Twin Peaks," as well as stars Kyle MacLachlan, Michael Ontkean, Peggy Lipton and Catherine Caulson (the Log Lady).The second half of the show will feature interviews with Steven Bochco, the creator of "Cop Rock," as well as stars Barbara Bosson and Ronnie Cox.It's a new kind of network spin doctoring -- aimed at trying to assure that viewers' first impression of the show comes from ABC, not from television critics.

As of now, the last image of "Twin Peaks" won't be of a fat lady singing, but of wooden drawer knob screaming. That's what closed out last Saturday's episode of this quirky ABC show as the face of the dead Josie Packard turned into animated wood. No more episodes are scheduled.ABC whispered this news into a few ears, notably those of the Lynch-Frost production company that makes the show, undoubtedly hoping that it would disappear into the weekend fog and that, come Monday, it would be all right.

Actor Kyle MacLachlan said it's simple.After having been asked a dozen different ways why he thinks viewers are so fascinated with FBI Agent Dale Cooper, the character he plays on "Twin Peaks," Mr. MacLachlan said, "He's this guy in this black suit with his hair slicked back, and it's fun to see what he's going to become obsessed with next -- coffee, cherry pie, Douglas firs. . . . Mainly, though, he's the hero on this quest." The Hero Quest.Actress Sheryl Lee said it was simple for her, too, once she understood what Director David Lynch was saying.

Forty-some years ago, Baltimore wrapped itself in blue and white. Blue-collar workers toiled at steel mills and shipyards. White marble steps beckoned them home. Come fall, folks packed Memorial Stadium on Sundays to cheer the Colts, a club of castoffs and commoners who had somehow clicked to win it all. Of course, Johnny U and Spats and Gino dressed in blue and white. Bled those colors, too But by 1996, those hues had faded. The Colts were long gone, as were many of the manufacturing jobs.

Carnivale, HBO's new drama set in the backstage world of a spooky carnival troupe traveling though the Dust Bowl Southwest during the Great Depression, is dark, deep and scary. It's the stuff of which cold-sweat nightmares are made. And, after screening three episodes, I am as hooked on this moody, hypnotic saga as I've been on any drama since The Sopranos. I'm not saying this is going to be the next Sopranos. It's too idiosyncratic and strange for that. At best, Carnivale is more likely to become the kind of passionate but offbeat pleasure that Twin Peaks was for the cult of viewers that felt comfortable with dancing dwarves who spoke backward and nonlinear story lines that combined waking and dream states in a way that only producer David Lynch seemed to understand.

ANAHEIM, Calif. - It used to be that basketball, among other things, was where the Collins twins of Stanford differed. Jarron, a 6-foot-11 forward who can play inside or out, had been a key player for the Cardinal from the beginning, contributing to the team's Final Four run in 1998. Jason, on the other hand, had known only disappointment because of injuries that ended each of his first two years. But unlike the hair (thick for Jason, close for Jarron) and neatness (Jarron very, Jason not so)

Celebrated independent filmmaker David Lynch, known for probing the boundaries of visual entertainment, has announced a new experiment: He's going to make cartoons for the Internet. Lynch is the latest big-name artist landed by Shockwave.com (www.shockwave.com), the entertainment Web site owned by San Francisco-based software company Macromedia. In recent months, the company also has recruited comic-book legend Stan Lee, "South Park" creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and filmmaker Tim Burton to develop original animated series for the site.

The next time you insist that the TV networks always play it safe, just remember these two words: "Twin Peaks." No one was quite sure what to make of Mark Frost and David Lynch's audaciously surreal take on love, murder and the supernatural in a small logging town, but they couldn't stop watching. "Twin Peaks" at its best is as good as director Lynch has ever been -- and that's saying something for the man who filmed "Eraserhead," "Blue Velvet" and "Wild at Heart." Curiously, part of that quality is because of the limitations TV censors put on Lynch, forcing him to be suggestive and understated where his movies went straight over the top (witness the disappointing big-screen prequel, "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me")

What cliffhanger? What suspense? Thanks to "Twin Peaks producers' merchandising and publicity avarice, many of the mysteries left open at the end of last season's abbreviated run have already been resolved. All you have to do is listen to "Diane: The Twin Peaks Tapes of Agent Cooper" and read Jennifer Lynch's "The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer" (exceptionally lurid and smutty, in case you were wondering).They reveal, for example, that:Agent Cooper survives the shooting at the door of his room at the Great Northern Hotel.

TWIN PEAKS: FIRE WALK WITH ME(New Line, 1992, no price set, rated R, Jan. 6 release date.)If you've seen "Blue Velvet" or "Eraserhead," it will come as no surprise to you that director David Lynch is capable of creating some most disturbing cinematic sequences. But the fact that he has done so in a theatrical prequel to the ground-breaking television series that was unable to sustain its craze-like popularity is not only a surprise but a great disappointment. Especially since the 134-minute film is also nearly devoid of the trademark humor that one suspects was what most captivated TV audiences.

PASADENA, Calif. -- NASA's little Martian rover crept about the surface of the Red Planet yesterday, prospecting for answers to a burning scientific question: Was early Mars like early Earth: warm, wet and hospitable to life?The first data relayed back from Pathfinder, the rover's mother ship, revealed nothing to contradict that theory -- in fact, the data helped support it.Striking images from Pathfinder's color camera showed a tantalizing grab-bag of multicolored rocks, soils, hills and craters, some with remarkably Earth-like features that will keep researchers busy for years to come.
