Dinosaur TV Week

Here are some highlights of U.S. national television programming 
concerning dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals, all times Eastern:

Sunday, December 21

PBS (Check local listings -- day and time may vary)
Firing Line
"Resolved: Evolutionists Should Acknowledge Creation"
With Barry Lynn, Philip E. Johnson, Michael Ruse, and of course His 
Nibs.  It's always fascinating to watch intelligent Republicans deal 
with this constituent-sensitive topic.

Monday, December 22

TRAVEL Channel, 4:00am
Outdoor Journal
"Texas Dude Ranch"
Includes segment on Alberta's many dinosaurs.

Tuesday, December 23

PBS, 8:00pm (time and day may vary -- check listings)
"Mammoths of the Ice Age"
New evidence that Mammoths may have survived the Ice Age and almost 
avoided extinction, whatever that means.

Wednesday, December 24

History Channel, 12:00 Noon, 5:00pm
The Real West
"Dinosaur Hunters of the Old West"
Famous Western dinosaur explorers Marsh and Cope didn't always see eye 
to eye.

Thursday, December 25

Disney Channel, 3:20pm
Will Vinton's Claymation Christmas
Dinosaurs and the California Raisins tour the Land of Christmas.  For 
children of all ages, and adults.

Friday, December 26

AMC, 11:00pm
The Beast From 20,000 Fanthoms
The Rhedosaur.  'Nuff said.  One of Harryhausen's finest.

Saturday, December 27

SCIFI Channel, 3:00pm
King Kong vs. Godzilla
Who will win?  Who knows?  All that's for sure is that Don King will 
walk away much richer.  Personally I find this to be the most 
entertaining of these absurd movies.

Sunday, December 28

Discovery Channel, 9:30am
Bonehead Detectives of the Paleoworld
Children's program about paleontology.  This episode: "T. rex the 
Destroyer".  A much-needed look at the underexposed little critter.  I 
thought it was classed as a light cruiser . . . 

If you're not adult, look away now.

OK adults, there's some channel called STARZ that has a program (a 
movie?) called Solitaire For Two about a Body Language expert (don't we 
all know one?) who woos an uptight paleontologist (same comment) who can 
read men's dirty thoughts.  [Insert joke here.]
