TV Bulletin Board (Oct. 10)

Anybody out there been trying to picture how the young Gus McRae and Woodrow Call will look in CBS' upcoming Commanche Moon prequel to Lonesome Dove?

Maybe not. But the original 1989 miniseries, starring Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones as Gus and Woodrow, remains by far the greatest made-for-TV western ever. It's also my all-time favorite TV program, period. So here are the first official photos from CBS, with Steve Zahn (left) as Gus and Karl Urban as Woodrow.

Weighing in at six hours, Commanche Moon is scheduled to premiere on Dec. 30 and continue on Jan. 1 and 2. And wow, I just opened the mail and CBS already has sent out the review DVDs.
