Wisconsin State Journal, Friday, April 30, 1993 TVENTERTAINMENT 5E TV PREVIEW ff't wtf .... I Fake death on 'Palace'; 'Poisoned Pen' for Perry Today on television: "The Golden Palace," 7 p.m., Ch. 3 Herb Edelman is always wonderful playing Dorothy's ex-husband Stan. Tonight, his ex-mother-in-law Sophia learns that he is dead and actually feels sorry. However, her sorrow is short-lived when Stan shows up very much alive. It seems he staged his death to dupe the IRS. A funny idea handled with sharp comedic flair. "Perry Mason: The Case of the Poisoned Pen," 8 p.m., Ch. 15 nere s a typical "Ferry Mason" case in which all the suspects are conveniently in the same place when a murder occurs. The setting is a writers' convention and the murder victim is a man who wasn't very well-liked (David Warner). The list of suspects includes Cindy Williams, Barbara Babcock, Keil Martin, and Tony LoBian-co. Burr is his usual "in-command" self and the suspects all appear likely until Burr's Mason narrows down the list. "Good Advice," 8:30 p.m., Ch. 3 A funny outing in which Susan (Shelley Long) rallies around a former children's TV star named Colonel Sunshine who has been denied the privilege of wearing his mask and cape during personal appearances. Jack (Treat Williams) doesn't want to take the case at first, because it would mean facing his old college nemesis, the lawyer who wants to take the rights away from the old colonel. However, Susan and the rest of the office give him the backup he needs and they go to bat for the old kiddie-TV star. "Get Out Your Handkerchiefs," 9 p.m., Cable ch. 16 A ribald French comedy, with subtitles, about the confused roles of the sexes in the emotional revolution. Gerard Depardieu, Patrick Dewaere and the lovely Carol Laure are a strange trio. Dewaere is a husband who has been sexually neglecting his beautiful wife (Laure) and in comes a stranger (Depardieu) who not only makes the wife quite happy but manages to unearth hidden passion in the husband, too. An offbeat menage-a-trois ensues. Steven Scheuer is a television columnist for King Features. Goren bridge STEVEN SCHEUER With Omar Sharif and Tannah Hirsch Both vulnerable.

At the end, decide whether any of the players could have done better. With a minimum opening and a good six-card spade suit, South had only one story to tell. Once North had bid both minors and South could not bid no-trump, North courageously raised to game with a low doubleton and the best contract was reached. West led the king of hearts and, with the possibility of a heart ruff staring everyone in the face, shifted to the queen of spades. Declarer won and surrendered a heart, but the defenders removed dummy's last trump. Now declarer went after diamonds, but West ruffed the third diamond and cashed a third heart for down one. Did everything go according to the script? Given a 3-2 trump split essential if the contract was to succeed declarer has 10 tricks going in: five spades, four diamonds and a club. As long as declarer can protect those, the contract is a sure thing. That doesn't require any outlandish maneuver, just simple technique. When West shifts to a trump at trick two, declarer should simply duck. The best they can do is take another heart trick, holding declarer to the contract. Should they try anything else, declarer will be able to draw trumps and then run diamonds, thereby scoring an over-trick.

Will 'Quantum Leap' live to jump again? By Mike Antonucci Knlght-Ridder Newspapers Good television shows get it in the neck every season. They're invented with love, received with devotion and canceled with heart-lessness. But it may not be that simple in the case of "Quantum Leap." With the help of people such as San Jose, Calif. 's Christina Mavroudis, TV's most eccentrically original program is fighting for its life with a sense of indignation as well as determination. Mavroudis, a Silicon Valley secretary, is one of the leaders among production support provided by UW Hospital & Clinics Free Mother's Day Card With Any Purchase of Ten Dollars or More Choose from our extensive collection of Jewelry, Stationery, Stuffed Animals, Soaps, Fabric Boxes, Paperweights, Balloons, Luminary Candles, Stained Glass and other exciting treasuresl r a itPuffinfcl Heritage Square Mlddieton Springs Odaru at Whitney Way 2520 Allen Blvd. 274.5613 836-9119 MF 930)8:30, Sat. 9 30 5, Sun. 11:30 5 If you want to try to influence NBC's next move, write to Don Ohlmeyer, the network's new West Coast president. The address is 3000 West Alameda, Burbank, Calif. 91523. the fans who have transformed the 4 Vi -year-old show into something more than entertainment. She and her fellow "Leapers" don't call them "Leapheads" have imbued "Quantum Leap" with a status that emulates the "Star Trek" phenomenon. Most TV shows are just for watching. "Quantum Leap," which stars Scott Bakula as a heroic, accidental, body-switching time traveler named Sam Beckett, is for much more. That's why Mavroudis, 32, started a newsletter about the show in 1989. That's why a few thousand disciples attended a convention earlier this year. That's why news, speculation and trivia about the program percolate on computer bulletin boards. Indeed, that's why "Quantum Leap" fans, distraught over last week's news that NBC is canceling the show after a May 5 finale, are scheduled to rally this week outside network offices in New York and Burbank. The "Quantum Leap" production staff and cast have developed friendships with a number of fans, who have come to be considered the show's extended family.

Clgo Quik Marts.&zzr. -.J says the obsessed core audience and, the continuing vitality of the show's' premise mean NBC's decision won't dictate the show's fate. ; "I know this show is going to goon," Bellisario said this week. "This! show hasn't reached the end of its time. ... At some point, I'm sure there'll be a movie if there isn't a show." Bellisario says it's doubtful NBC will reverse its decision, no matter how impassioned and impressive the protests by Leapers. But he said Universal Television, which owns the rights, is exploring the possibility of moving the program to another network. The charms of "Quantum Leap" include delightful performances by Dean Stockwell as Al, a frequently exasperated friend of Beckett who catches up to the site of each "leap", as a projected image a holographic guardian angel with a lascivious streak. As Beckett has leaped in and out of just about any type of character female, disabled, black the show also has confronted social issues with a deft, suspensef ul style. The quality of this season's episodes, however, has been erratic, as even Bellisario and Mavroudis con-! cede. In the May 5 finale titled "Mir-, ror Image," Beckett leaps into him-; self in 1953 and discovers the power; that has been propelling him through time. But Bellisario says there's plenty of room to pick up again with new adventures for Beckett. "At the end," he said, "I left It wide open as to where he was going next."
