Oliver Stone's The Doors is reaching a fever-dream climax, with Jim Morrison/Val Kilmer about to screech something about his mother amid the throb of "The End," when the bottom third of the screen explodes in a lime-green flash. Talk about your bad trips: It's an on-screen promo for Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. OK, so maybe that's what you get for watching The Doors on Bravo in the first place. Bravo used to skim the cream of the art-film coffee, but that was before the network got bought by NBC. Now it's home to Celebrity Poker, West Wing reruns, Queer Eye and Inside the Actor's Studio.

MOST PARENTS realize that watching television is not the most healthy activity for their children. But the American Academy of Pediatrics may have startled them nonetheless with its recent recommendation that children under age 2 watch no television at all.The organization also recommended that parents keep logs for their pediatricians of the nature and amount of programming their older children watch.Scientific evidence to support the claims was scant, and the warning may be overblown. But the exaggeration helped make the point: Children need mental and physical activity, and watching television is the epitome of passivity.

Why do we love watching sports? And what did we love the most in 2009? Those are two questions each of us would answer differently. But the answer to the second question helps explain the answer to the first. We love watching sports because they are a Rorschach inkblot test for our emotions. And we file away certain memories from any given year based on what we love about the games we watch and play. Maybe you love watching the Ravens each Sunday because wearing a purple jersey and nervously chewing your nails - or on your remote - gives a sense of belonging.

Scooby-Doo, where are you? The real question is, where aren't you? Not only is the cowardly canine the star of the Cartoon Network's most prolific show - running about 45 times a week more than 30 years after its debut on network TV - but he'll also spring onto the big screen next summer, with Freddie Prinze Jr. and Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Sarah Michelle Gellar. In the meantime, the Gang - Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma - is taking to the stage in Scooby-Doo in Stagefright! at the Mechanic tomorrow night through Sunday.

At the risk of getting too existential for our own good, we pose this question: When is a bar officially a sports bar? If it serves beer and the grainy 27-inch Sylvania in the corner is turned to the Ravens even though there are only three people watching -- whoops, make that two, since one of them just passed out (but still gripping his Bud Light!) -- is that a sports bar? FYI -- For more Baltimore-area sports bar listings, go online to baltimoresun.com/sportsbars.
