Critic’s Corner: What’s on TV this weekend?

Strawberry Summer 8 p.m., Hallmark Movie Channel

Did someone order a tall glass of kitsch with a twist of TV Land? Here’s a movie about a famous country singer (Trevor Donovan, center, with Jonathan Chase and Julie Mond), who comes to perform at a small town Strawberry Festival. And guess who’s hosting the festival? Shelley Long and Cindy Williams. I kind of wish this were a pilot for “Diane & Shirley.”


Episodes Tomorrow at 10:30 p.m., Showtime

I’m sorry to see this season end. But “Episodes,” with its short nine-episode season, seems to know what “Friends” didn’t: Leave ‘em wanting more. The most fun has been watching Matt LeBlanc play himself, a guy who is smarter than Joey from “Friends” and yet still pretty thick. He can’t resist his blind paramour, Jamie, and his stalker, whose name is actually Labia. Those liaisons get him into trouble in tomorrow night’s finale.
