Tonight: Get Smart

Looking for some cerebral fare tonight after feasting gluttonously on last night's episode of "The Bachelor?" (Oh, don't deny it.) Turn to PBS at 10 p.m. for Part One of a National Geographic documentary based on Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs and Steel, a scholarly look at how advancements in technology and civilization shaped the course of history from the Ice Age on. Truth be told, I tried tackling the book only to give up before the germs and steel came into play. Maybe I'll do better watching a documentary version, what with all the pretty pictures and stuff. -- Amy
