Picks and Pans Review: Freedom Road
NBC (9-11 p.m. ET)
Muhammad Ali, so bad it's a relief to know he has a few bucks saved up from his old career, plays a slave who becomes a senator during Reconstruction. While Kris Kristofferson, a white sharecropper, is better, he can't carry the champ. The script (based on Howard Fast's novel) is incredibly slow. (Concludes Tuesday, at 9 p.m.)
