Tunnel of love
Edward Burns made a name for himself in the 1990s with a string of romcoms that insisted that pretty people have problems, too. The director/writer returns to that theme in "Bridge and Tunnel," a 1980-set series about recent college graduates who still haven't gotten over their childhood crushes. It's an engaging dramedy, even if you find it hard to sympathize with lovesick characters who all look like they just stepped out of a modeling agency.

Pretty little witches
"Fate: The Winx Saga" goes after the same audience that was enthralled by the Harry Potter movies, but the less-than-magical episodes owe more to "Pretty Little Liars" than any adventures at the Hogwarts School. Its mostly female protagonists are more interested in hooking up with boys than saving the world.

"Resident Alien," in which an extraterrestrial (Alan Tudyk) masquerades as a doctor in a small Colorado town, has a lot of fun story lines, including one in which Minnesota comic Alice Wetterlund plays a quirky bartender thirsty for love. But the biggest draw is watching Tudyk's character warm up to his human condition while learning to play basketball, dance and appreciate "Law & Order." His performance is out of this world.

Need for speed
Preschoolers begging for a pet will only howl louder after watching "Go, Dog. Go!", an animated series based on P.D. Eastman's bestselling children's books. There's not much of an educational component in the episodes, but watching Tag and his four-legged friends race everything from blimps to mopeds to rocketed tractors makes for a good, harmless romp.

How she's doin'
Wendy Williams' gift for self-promotion is on full display next weekend with a two-hour biopic, followed by a documentary, "Wendy Williams: What a Mess!" Both offer the same message: The radio/TV host is God's gift to broadcasting, who mainly slipped up because her man did her wrong. Ciera Payton is terrific as Williams in the movie, but even die-hard fans may find the whole four-hour pity party excessive.
