Remote Possibilities: Surfing feds on USA, zombies on BBC America

A few things to watch (or feed your DVR).

Remote Possibilities: Surfing feds on USA, zombies on BBC America

You can read what I had to say about "Graceland" (10 p.m., USA) and "In the Flesh" (10 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, BBC America) in my column.

If you no longer want to wait an entire season of "Survivor" to see people triumph over a carefully edited wilderness, you might want to try "72 Hours" (9 p.m., TNT) in which "teams of strangers are dropped into the wilderness with nothing but a water bottle and a GPS device."

They're looking for a suitcase with $100,000 cash (yes, the quest may be shorter, but the payoff''s smaller).

Not enough money to get you interested? At 8, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is challenging a different group of strangers in "The Hero," also on TNT. The winner has "a chance to walk away with up to a million dollars." (Italics mine.)

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
