What's on tv

The big television event this week is the second week of Roland Garros (the French Open). I don't know Estelle Denis (on the cover), but apparently she's a presenter that's done a variety of news and information shows on different networks, not the least of which has been football coverage.

What not to watch this week. Our tv magazine rates shows and movies using a star system: one star is ok, four stars is best. They use another symbol for really bad movies: the red dot. It means "à zapper" (change the channel!). The editors often include comments about the movie that make me laugh.

Many of the films that the editors find to be bombs are low-budget sci-fi movies. I'm sure they're right.

Apocalypse Earth (AE: Apocalypse Earth). American made-for-tv movie. Directed by Thunder Levin, 2013.
With Adrian Paul, Richard Grieco, Bali Rodriguez, Gray Hawks, and Jayson McCardell.
Humans flee the earth during an alien invasion but land on a planet inhabited by vicious creatures.
It's badly filmed, badly acted, badly written, and badly produced; in short, yet another bomb in the long list of made-for-tv science fiction films.
For adults and children over 10.
