The best of the DIRECTV primetime lineup

If it started within BC on TVs 6pm-10pm primetime, the Denzel Washington/Clive Owen mystery-thriller Inside Man (5.10pm FoxAct) – and if BC on TV’s all-time favourite film wasn’t screening – might have been in contention.

Picture courtesy Rio Theatre**The Godfather Part II, 8pm Fox Classics. BEST FILM OF THE DAY AND ALL TIME. Watch this if you liked The Godfather, Goodfellas or the HBO series The Sopranos.

Part I of BC on TV’s favourite film of all time and the American Film Institute’s No. 3 begins the story of the rise of the crime figure – Marlon Brando in his best role ever (except possibly for Stanley in A Streetcar Named Desire or Kurtz in Apocalyspe Now)
