`JURASSIC UTAH’ IS RATHER DRY

SHARE `JURASSIC UTAH’ IS RATHER DRY

The locally produced "Jurassic Utah" is everything you might expect to find out about the dinosaurs that once roamed this area if you were sitting in a science class.

It also plays sort of like it's aimed at students sitting in science class."Jurassic Utah" is very informative - just chock full of facts for anyone who is already interested in the subject.

But it's not likely to attract the casual viewer.

Basically, "Jurassic Utah" is an hour of experts talking about dinosaurs. Holding dinosaur bones. Pointing at dinosaur skeletons or paintings.

What graphics there are are rather primitive by today's television standards. Overall, it's not exactly visually stimulating.

(With the exception of some gorgeous southern Utah scenery.)

But, once again, if this is a topic that you're interested in, there's a lot to be learned from "Jurassic Utah."

NEW STUFF FOR SUMMER: Although we're in the midst of the rerun season, there will be a bit of new stuff from Fox this summer.

As previously announced, the "Melrose Place" spinoff "Models Inc." will be seen on Wednesdays beginning June 29.

And the fourth network will begin airing the UFO series "Encounters: The Hidden Truth"' on Fridays at 7 p.m. for a limited run.

The very good, very overlooked - and already canceled - "Bakersfield, P.D." returns with new episodes on Thursdays at 8:30 p.m beginning July 7.

And the network will have original episodes of "Cops" (the 7 p.m. episode) and "America's Most Wanted" on Saturdays throughout the summer.

CBS TRYING HARDER: CBS, stung by the loss of those eight affiliates to Fox, is attempting to remake its relationship a bit with its 190-plus other stations.

The network and its affiliates are "exploring new opportunities" to go into business together in "new business ventures."

Only time will tell if anything comes about, and what these new businesses might be.
