Tube Notes

MUST-SEE: "Mysterious Ways," 7 p.m., Pax. At its worst moments this series is still fairly interesting. It’s virtually an anthology with its heroes probing the unexplained. Then there are the best moments, including this rerun. The series becomes "X-Files" meets "Touched By an Angel," somewhere south of the "Twilight Zone." Tonight, Declan (Adrian Pasdar) and Peggy (Rae Dawn Chong) try a canoeing trip. There’s a serious accident and some cheerily bland people from a remote camp rescue them. The result is a terrific hour, beautifully written, filmed and played.

MUST-SEE II: "Jazz," 9 p.m., PBS. Charlie Parker grew up in Kansas City where jazz was already hot. He was 11 when his mother gave him a saxophone; he soon mastered it. Parker would take a melody line, double the tempo and wail into improvisation. This chapter of the series is "Dedicated to Chaos." It goes from 1940 to 1945 when Americans went to war overseas and bopped hard at home.

"Frasier," 8 p.m., NBC. Frasier has become a role model for his boss who copies his tastes.

"NYPD Blue," 9 p.m., ABC. Life is more complicated now that Danny and Diane are secretly a couple. A female cop has been shot and Danny worries about Diane’s safety.

"Judging Amy" 9 p.m., CBS. This rerun has Amy worried that a minister is obsessed with the news spotlight after a black teenager has been killed.
