ALLOW ME TO MAKE A SUGGESTION. Try A & E's Cracker, the escapades of brilliant but compulsive criminal psychologist Eddie Fitzgerald (Robbie Coltrane). The latest chapter of this British film series, "Men Should Weep" (Tues., March 7, 9 p.m. ET), combines Fitz's impossibly messy personal life with a taut police procedural as a brutal rapist stalks Manchester. But the real reason to watch is that no previous TV drama has ever conveyed as dynamically the grotesque violation that is rape.
