Our vacationing TV critic, David Hilt-brand, left behind the tapes of some programs that didn't exactly make me want to race right to the set: three PBS nature series (ho hum), a country music special and a kid's show. Thanks, pal.

Surprise, surprise—those shows weren't so bad after all. And for all those grumblers who say there is never anything good on, try sampling any of the following shows, all of which can use more audience support: ABC's Elvis, China Beach, Life Goes On and thirtysomething, PBS's Degrassi High, CBS's Wiseguy and Murphy Brown, and NBC's Quantum Leap.
