Watching paint dry

"Genius: Picasso" seems like an appropriate follow-up to last year's miniseries about Albert Einstein, but based on the first four episodes, the producers and their star, Antonio Banderas, seem more enthralled by Pablo Picasso's way with women than his talent with a paintbrush. If romancing young women is a sign of genius, will next year's target be Hugh Hefner? To fully appreciate the artist, skip this Harlequin romance and log some time at a museum.

When it began

Anyone who thinks farmers are as passive as the couple from "American Gothic" should check out the premiere of "First Civilizations," which examines how crops have been at the center of some of our most horrific wars. Future episodes look at the birth of cities, religion and trade.
