TV picks for Feb. 15: ‘Splendor in the Grass,’ ‘Stargate Origins,’ ‘Roseanne: The Return’
The perils of love
As investigators continue to dig into the death of Natalie Wood, its an ideal time to revisit her work. You cant go wrong by starting with Splendor in the Grass, the 1961 film that matched Wood with Warren Beatty, both of whom take puppy love to an extreme level. Wood would receive an Oscar nomination for her work.

Stargate continues to be the sci-fi adventure that wont go away. The latest spinoff from the 1994 film is Stargate Origins, in which a young woman attempts to save the world. Curious explorers will have to cough up $20 to secure the 10-part series, but that subscription fee also opens the portal to the entire Stargate library.
