Picks and Pans Main: Tube

I WASN'T PERMITTED TO PREVIEW THE week's biggest TV event, Liz: The Elizabeth Taylor Story—and I couldn't be happier. Don't get me wrong; the embargo has in fact piqued my interest. NBC isn't sending out tapes, in part because the network is afraid early reviews will spur Taylor to seek a court order forbidding the airing of the film. Good news! I've had it with stale TV tales about celebrities like Roseanne, O.J. and Mike Tyson that amount to toothless takes of well-known incidents. So the whiff of controversy around Liz has me pumped. (Sun. and Mon., May 21 and 22, 9 p.m. ET)
