Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

06/10/2005: A Few Good (Interesting?) Shows this Weekend on TeeVee:

The Chicago Tribune "Tempo" section had this list of offerings: Nine shows to watch this weekend:

"Chicago Tonight," 7 p.m. Friday, WTTW-Ch. 11: Host Bob Sirott does a half-hour interview with minor-league baseball team owner Mike Veeck, son of legendary White Sox owner Bill Veeck. Mike talks about his dad, "Disco Demolition Night" and his new book, "Fun Is Good: How to Create Joy and Passion in Your Workplace and Career."

"Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry," 10:30 p.m. Friday, HBO: The interesting series begins its fifth season by including a guest spot by elusive and unpredictably peripatetic Dave Chappelle, videotaped last winter.

"Chicago Tribune Printers Row Book Fair," 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, C-SPAN2: C-SPAN2's Book TV provides live coverage of Printers Row Book Fair events and call-ins with authors; participants include Richard Posner, Geoffrey Stone, Kevin Boyle, John Harris and Michael Lind. More programming details are available at www.booktv.org.

"The Dead Zone," 9 p.m. Sunday, USA Network: As the fourth season of this stylish, spooky series begins, psychic Johnny Smith (Anthony Michael Hall) must stop the possible assassination of a slick and sleazy politician, Greg Stillson (Sean Patrick Flanery), and as if that weren't enough, he's still trying to prevent the nuclear Armageddon he sees in his scariest visions. Paired with the second season of USA's "The 4400," this promises to be one enjoyable night of TV.

"Super Troupers," 9:30 p.m. Saturday, WTTW-Ch. 11: If you've ever danced or sung along to the irresistible tunes of ABBA, this retrospective of the Swedish band's chart-topping pop career is for you.

"Danica Patrick's Race for Indy," 6:30 p.m. Saturday, ESPN: Not sick of the Danica hype? Relive her groundbreaking season and Indianapolis 500 race in this one-hour special.

There a couple others on the list but these struck me as an interesting group - and I enjoy "Dead Zone" as a Sci-Fi mystery based on the Stephen King novel of the same name - So I'd like to see the season premiere.
