Tuning in: On TV this week.
Sunday Sept. 5
Mystery! The Inspector Lynley Mysteries III (PBS, 9-10:30 p.m.): The aristocrat Thomas Lynley (Nathaniel Parker) and his working-class sidekick return for a round of thoughtful stories that delve as much into culture as they do into crime. In the first episode of four, a popular athlete is murdered in his bed. The engrossing story unfolds parallels between the lives of the two detectives and that of the murderer.
Wedding Daze (Hallmark Channel, 8-10 p.m.): John Larroquette stars as the father of the brides as he escorts his three daughters down the aisle on the same day - dashing his own plans for a second honeymoon with his wife. The big day costs too much, naturally, and all the traditions and fuss that go into weddings cost a lot in worry, too. It's predictable, but endearing family entertainment.
Joey (NBC, 8-8:30 p.m.): Reprising his role as Joey Tribbiani from the hit series 'Friends,' Matt LeBlanc makes Joey as cute and clueless as ever. Offered a TV role, he hurries out to Hollywood only to have his show canceled (it's too grossly violent) and to find out that the play he turned down is a hit.
Pop Rocks (ABC Family, 8-10 p.m.): Some teenagers may fantasize about having cool parents, and this fantasy about a strait-laced dad with a hard-rock past is as far-fetched as it is strangely sweet. Gary Cole plays Jerry Harden, a banker with a perfect wife and two rebellious teens. The oldest girl is ready for college but her parents don't have enough money. Then an old band member offers Jerry an opportunity to participate in a band reunion.
