Down that ol’ dusty trail
Cowboy No. 1: “You’re looking for trouble.” Cowboy No. 2: “I was born for it.” That kind of dime-store dialogue would be intolerable in most TV Westerns, but it’s kind of a kick when delivered by such veteran farmhands as Jon Voight and James Caan in “J.L. Family Ranch,” an otherwise ridiculous movie about a family squabble that results in a showdown with federal agents that has more than a passing resemblance to a recruitment video for the NRA. Melanie Griffith and Steven Bauer come along for the ride.

In his intro to “A Conversation With Bill Moyers,” Don Shelby calls his guest the greatest broadcast journalist of his generation. There’s little in this hour to back up that claim, but the chat, filmed before a studio audience at TPT headquarters in St. Paul, is captivating, thanks to the former WCCO anchor’s well-informed questions and Moyers’ storytelling chops — put to particular good use as he shares how the lighting of a cigar helped stall a reporter from filing a story on LBJ’s upcoming surgery. TV needs more of Moyers, and Shelby.
