Tube Notes

By Mike Hughes
Gannett News Service

MUST-SEE: "Gideon’s Crossing," 9 p.m., ABC. Not only does this show have Andre Braugher, one of TV’s best actors, there are also some gifted young stars playing his students. Tonight the focus is on Rhona Mitra as Dr. Alejandra "Ollie" Klein. Mitra grew up in London and has roots in England and India. She appeared in the films "Get Carter" and "The Hollow Man" and played a nurse who attracted Bailey in TV’s "Party of Five." Tonight, Ollie befriends a drug-test volunteer who has been diagnosed with leukemia.

ALSO WORTH SEEING: "Do You Believe in Miracles?," 10 p.m., HBO. The 1980 U.S. hockey team’s story is told in this superb documentary.

"Inside the Osmonds," 7 p.m., ABC. Here’s the story of the Osmond family’s rise from Utah to fame. Since Jimmy Osmond (the youngest one) produced this film, we’re expecting a favorable portrait.

"Philadelphia" (1993), 8:20 p.m., TBS. Here’s Tom Hanks’ Oscar-winning portrayal of a lawyer with AIDS who must fight for his rights.

"The Parkers," 8:30 p.m., UPN Here’s an immensely schizophrenic episode for Black History Month. On one hand, it pays great respect to black inventors and to Negro League baseball fans; on the other, it has a screeching and dim-witted kind of humor that pretty much disrespects everyone.

"American Experience," 9 p.m., PBS. When the new passenger trains arrived they caused a stir. They were called "streamliners" and Americans became obsessed with the look; everything from kettles to toys became streamlined. Then the Depression, the war and auto-mania killed a sleek train trend.
