This is the third day of TV WORTH WATCHING. After all those decades of being a TV critic, I can't help but think of the launch of the website in terms of the launch of a new TV series. You plan for months to craft a "pilot," then have to turn right around and churn out additional episodes - all while having no idea whether your project will attract enough viewers to survive...

One fascinating element of the David Lynch-directed dream sequence was the odd way the "Man from Another Place," as the dancing midget was billed in the credits, spoke in Cooper's dream. The midget, like the Laura Palmer look-alike played by Sheryl Lee, seemed to be speaking a type of broken English...

My favorite report ever. Fresh Air executive producer Danny Miller, all-around great guy, acknowledged and indulged my passion for everything Beatles by asking me to put together a tribute keyed to the 40th anniversary of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The idea was to do a track-by-track sampling of the best cover versions of songs from that album, and all I had to do was winnow through my embarrassingly anal Beatles covers collection...
