Critic’s corner: What’s on TV tonight

MGM

Pride and Prejudice 8 p.m., TCM

The screenplay of this 1940 movie, co-written by Aldous Huxley, diverges from the Jane Austen novel, but so what. It’s still good, not least of all thanks to Laurence Olivier as Darcy. Olivier had a number of periods of greatness, but his work in 1939-40 with “Wuthering Heights,” “Rebecca,” and this movie is my favorite. Pictured (from left): Greer Garson, Olivier, Maureen O’Sullivan, and Bruce Lester.

Revolution 10 p.m., Channel 7

Hmm. After tonight’s “fall finale,” NBC is pulling the show until March 25. So expect lots of sword-fighting, as well as what looks in the previews to be a reunion between Charlie and Danny. It seems like an awful idea for a serial like this to go on a winter hiatus; the potential of losing viewer interest is high. Winter hiatuses were the final straws for “FlashForward” and “The Event.” Pictured: Tracy Spiridakos as Charlie.
