Tonight on the Tube: Crime Time Repeats, Robin Hood and NBA Playoffs

Robin Hood - Season 1It is Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby, as well as a night with not much on as usual. Maybe you are headed out to catch Spider-Man 3 at the theater today. It was pretty good, but not as good as the first two. It is a little off topic, but if you are interested you can read my Spider-Man 3 review at New Movie Friday. Enjoy your day.

Solid Selections
