In the mean time, in between time . . .

Bleak are the television programs on-air as of now — the end of the Spring means lots of re-runs and filler shows (i.e., that horrid Denise Richards dramedy on E!). But don’t despair, HBO has come to the aid of the waning television viewer: tonight the network kicks off its Documentary Films Series, debuting a new documentary film every Monday night at 9 p.m. This means there is no longer an excuse for getting sucked into shitty reality tv (even though I do love it) or reruns of “Most Outrageous Videos.” Do something good for your brain, and watch a documentary film.

The series premieres with “Roman Polanksi: Wanted and Desired,” which revisits the filmmaker’s infamous legal controversies stemming from alleged intercourse with a minor. Now doesn’t that sound juicier than Denise Richards’ divorce problems? I think so.
