    Memphis Beat

    Television needs another cop show about as much as the Gulf of Mexico needs more oil, but in both cases, no one has been able to stanch the flow.

    Dumbstruck

    "Dumbstruck" is a fascinating documentary that explores the bizarre, funny, and, at moments, sad world of ventriloquists.
