'The Finder' delivers hero juice

Silk is fabulous in this role, whether tossing off a zinger, flattening a foe, or displaying supernatural sexiness. She gets help from a script that manages to be serious without taking itself too seriously. For example, after Bo is kidnapped by the succubus clan, they explain themselves to her – the obligatory exposition scene that puts you to sleep in most fantasy series. But in the middle of it, Bo shares her first kiss with one of her own kind, causing blue energy to pass between them in spectacular fashion. “That was like the Fourth of July in my mouth!” she exclaims.

American Experience (8 pm Tuesday, PBS)
Watching a documentary about Gen. George Armstrong Custer and his Last Stand at the Little Big Horn, you’re amazed that this man was long considered an American hero. Even in the mid 20th century, he got the godlike treatment in an Errol Flynn movie.

To modern eyes, Custer is the embodiment of evil, right down to the creepy mustache. He was vain, ruthless and underhanded. He allowed fellow soldiers to be massacred in pursuit of his own glory. He decimated Indian communities, including defenseless noncombatants. He even desecrated sacred Indian burial grounds just for kicks.

Even for a role as a movie villain, producers would have to soften him a bit so he wouldn’t seem like a one-dimensional monster. The creepy mustache, of course, would be the first thing to go.
