Very thin on the ground this week.

West Wing starts at season 4 on the ABC for the first time (Thu 930P) and they promise to run it in sequence, at the advertised time, every week. For fans, this should be a huge fillip given the mauling at the hands of channel 9 over the past few years, if irate letters to the GG editor are anything to go by.

The Movie Show (ABC Wed 10P) - with Margaret and David - made a welcome return last night even if Margaret continued to "love" everything that she saw over summer.

I often wonder how GG decides which movie receives their 'movie spotlight' for the week but now I know : there's nothing else on !
Cutter's Way (7 Sat midnight) stars Jeff Bridges and John Heard and was made in 1981. Heard plays a "psychologically and physically damaged Vietnam vet...who is fuelled by alcohol, self-pity, paranoia and indignation at those who elude moral obligation. Cutter embarks on a mission to find his Ahab (the film makes an overt reference to Moby Dick), and that instigates a fatal chain of events." "[The film] is a brilliantly concentrated study of three people trapped in an abyss of guilt, injury and redemption." It might be worth a look.
