>TRUE TRASH TV TIME TO CONSIDER THE MORE OUTLANDISH of the season's syndicated shows (check local listings). In Space Precinct, created by British sci-fi master Gerry Anderson {Thunderbirds), Ted Shackelford {Knots Landing) plays a 21st-century New York City cop who has transferred to crime-ravaged Demeter City on the far side of the Milky Way. Now when he chases illegal aliens, there's no telling what they may look like. Rick Springfield and Yannick Bisson play crime-solving brothers in High Tide, a beach-based adventure show. That means in between car chases, the guys get to take off their shirts and the camera gets to ogle bikini-stuffers. George Segal is the ex-CIA agent who gets the brothers into hot water. Both shows are tackier than flypaper; only Space Precinct is entertaining.
