YOU can always tell when our programmers are running out of ideas because the television schedules suddenly feature the likes of Jaws and a random selection of James Bond romps. Mind you, TVB has a habit of showing Jaws whenever the swimming season dawns and, a couple of years back, immediately after a fatal shark attack off Sai Kung. If I remember correctly the accompanying promos then were set to the tune 'she wore an itsy bitsy, teeny weeny, yellow polka dot bikini'. What wags! Anyway, this week brings both Bond and Big Mouth. And amazingly enough, 'Jaws' appears in both films. Neat, huh? TODAY OK. So I'm struggling a bit this week. And so were the Bond boys back in 1977 when they came up with The Spy Who Loved Me (Pearl, 9.30 pm), a film far removed from the Ian Fleming source material but, curiously enough, a stab at a camp throwback to the '60s classics. Roger Moore - complete with flapping collars and biscuit-coloured suits - teams up with glamorous Russian spy Barbara Bach to outfox megalomaniac shipping magnate Curt Jurgens and his modular undersea missile base. Memorable moments? Er, the spectacular opening ski jump sequence complete with Union Jack parachute, and Richard 'Jaws' Kiel, the metal-mouthed killer. Oh, and the song Nobody Does It Better. TUESDAY OK. So TVB is showing Lethal Weapon (Pearl, 9.30 pm) part one after it screened part two. But, as Barry Norman would creak, 'and why not?' It stands the test of time well, this hyper-charged, low-ish budget thriller that took the world by storm. Mel Gibson is Riggs the Vietnam veteran cop with suicidal tendencies provoked by the death of his wife, and Danny Glover his reluctant partner. Gary Busey is a flame-proof hitman for a nasty bunch of drug dealers, all ex-CIA trained killers. This is a brutal story of Viet vets fighting a war at home but Gibson's charm makes it relatively easy to swallow. WEDNESDAY THE Normandy landings may have come and gone, but the war's still on for both channels tonight. The Battle Of The Bulge is on the other side but I have seen Robert Shaw and his tanks enough times, so I'm opting for 633 Squadron (World, 9.40 pm). It may not be as spectacular as the Dambusters and all those bouncing bombs, but it's still chocks away for a jolly adventure as a Mosquito squadron attempts the dashed devilishly difficult task of collapsing a cliff overhanging a munitions factory in a Norwegian fjord. Cliff Robertson leads the mission and not a lot of people know this but James Clavell co-wrote the screenplay. THURSDAY THANK heaven for Sean Connery. I would rather see him in a Bond movie, but he continues his habit of single-handedly saving films in Medicine Man (Pearl, 9.30 pm). In this John McTiernan-directed film, he plays a scientist working in the Brazilian rain forest who has found a cure for cancer but can't duplicate it. Lorraine Bracco is his American superior sent to check up on him and with whom he becomes involved. It is an excellent premise, but the whole thing sags because of a weak showing from Bracco in a badly written role and a generally weak second half. FRIDAY I HOPE Friday's not your bath night because here comes Jaws (Pearl, 9.30 pm). What more is there to say about Steven Spielberg's popular classic other than the opening sequence proved to be a Psycho shower scene for the 1970s and, in hindsight, I'm not surprised Spielberg dropped the sexual jealousy theme of Peter Benchley's novel. SATURDAY LASTLY this week, the final nail in the coffin for sword and sorcery flicks. Legend (World, 9.30 pm) was sold as a fairy tale for grown-ups, but actually represented a chance to see what happens when an art director gets hold of an enchanted forest. Wholesome young peasant Jack takes his sweetheart on a quest to see the last surviving unicorns but Satan has other plans for them. As is often the case with director Ridley Scott, it's better to look at than listen to. Tim Curry enjoys excellent make-up as the Evil One but Tom Cruise and Mia Sara bland-out big time.
