I tell you, I'm really excited about this proposed new The Sword in the Stone ride (the ride I would create were I an Imagineer and given the chance). I think it could be something really special. In past intros and closings we've discussed the conveyances and the first two areas patrons would visit. Up this week – the third area, the shape-shifting area, you know with all the different animal bits from the movie.
Sunday, July 13:
8:00 - 9:00PM
Nature - “Encountering Sea Monsters”. Is Nature beyond the point where they feel like they need to come up with, you know, nature stories? Sea monsters? Really? It sounds like a stunt for sweeps. But it’s now only the July sweep, which hardly counts. Weird.
9:00PM – 10:30PM
Masterpiece Mystery! – "Foyle's War, Series V – Plan of Attack". This is it for our good friend Christopher Foyle, at least the bits that relate to World War II. Series V of Foyle's War feature the end of the war and, only very briefly, the start of the peace. But, will Foyle finally find peace? Watch and see.
10:30 – 11:00PM
Air Group 16: We Came to Remember. A documentary on Air Group 16, who served on the Lexington in the Pacific Theater. This doc follows a reunion of veterans and their families. Not to fear though, there’s archival footage, too.

8:00 - 9:00PM
Antiques Roadshow – "Bismarck (Hour One)". I'm going to level with you, I know very little about Bismarck, North Dakota. I know very little about the Dakotas in general. I've driven across the country twice, once down south and once more middle/northish, but I never made it to either Dakota. I wanted to, what with Mt. Rushmore being in one of the Dakotas, but I never got there. The Antiques Roadshow, however, did.
9:00 – 10:00PM
History Detectives. This show may be the most fascinating show ever, it really may, but its title leave a lot to be desired, not like the next show. The next show has the single greatest title for a show that I’ve ever heard (other than “Josh Lasser, You’ve Been Hired as an Imagineer” of course)
10:00 – 11:00PM
