May the 4th, y'all.
For "Star Wars" fans, it means one (funny) thing. For students of American history, it has a very different resonance. CNN looks at the latter in a special I talk about in today's TV roundup, which you can find here. Also, notes on "24," various season finales and a PBS look at the lost gardens of Babylon.
Today's DVD/Blu-ray column talks mostly about the "Veronica Mars" movie, which I enjoyed, but wish had had the time of TV-series season.
