Picks and Pans Review: Kurt Vonnegut's Harrison Bergeron

Showtime (Sun., Aug. 13, 8 p.m. ET)


In this intriguing futuristic fable based on a Vonnegut short story, the most prized ideal in the year 2053 is absolute uniformity. One young man (Rudy's Sean Astin) is, to his enormous chagrin, an overachiever in a dumbed-down world. Look for droll cameos from Sean's father, John Astin, Howie Mandel, Andrea Martin, Buck Henry and others.
