PBS kicks off salute to 'Pioneers of Television'


Danger, Will Robinson! PBS kicks off its second salute to the "Pioneers of Television" (8 p.m. ET/PT, times may vary), with an examination of the stars and shows that made up early sci-fi. Look for clips from "Lost in Space," ''Star Trek" and "Twilight Zone," to name a few.

PBS follows its trip to the past with the launch of something new, a monthly magazine program from the network's inimitable "Frontline". Tonight's premiere, "Are We Safer?," explores the growing reach and power of government anti-terrorism agencies and activities.

Let's start with the expected but still welcome good news: Mozzie lives - the not-at-all-surprising resolution of last season's cliff-hanger that you get right off the bat in tonight's "White Collar" return. And here's even better news. This entertaining caper, so capably led by Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay, launches with an excellent outing that solidifies its position as one of the network's best while sending the show off on a new and promising direction. And happily, Willie Garson's Mozzie, one of TV's more enjoyably odd characters, is still along for the ride.
