Description Theres a lot of information in How the Earth Was Made, but perhaps the most interesting relates to time. Quite often, the numbers are so staggering that scientists refer to it as "deep time," an appropriate term when one grapples with the notion that our planet is 4.5 billion years old, or that the oceans were formed by rainfall that lasted literally millions of years, or that 700 million years ago, Earth was completely covered by ice that was a mile thick, with surface temperatures reaching minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit. On the other end of the scale are numbers that seem surprisingly small: for instance, it wasnt until 220 years ago that the accepted church doctrine regarding the planets age (no more than 6000 years, according to the Bible) was seriously challenged and that the key to its past was found in rocks, not scripture, while the discovery that dinosaurs once ruled the Earth came considerably later than that. Using a combination of computer graphics and animation, various drawings and diagrams, photos, location footage, and expert commentary, this fascinating, 94-minute History Channel production takes us from the very beginning, when the planet was formed by meteors colliding in space, through numerous major events (including the appearance of water, granite, and oxygen) and mind-boggling catastrophes (such as mass extinctions caused by volcanic eruptions or the enormous meteor that wiped out 75% of all living things, including the dinosaurs, some 65 million years ago), right up to the present; theres even a glimpse into the future, when Earth will likely end up as barren and lifeless as Mars (no need to hit the panic button yet, though--a few billion more years will pass before that happens). Bonus features include additional scenes and a documentary entitled "Inside the Volcano." --Sam Graham

Description Joan of Arcadia is a drama that follows a typical family facing atypical situations, not the least of which is their teenage daughters conversations with God.

An outbreak of serious crime in his idyllic new town has challenged Girardis desire for order, as have the ups and downs he faces with his family. Daughter Joan ( Amber Tamblyn ), an average teenager, has been acting a little strange. Most dont know that it has to do with the unusual way various people keep popping up, introducing themselves as God and then giving her specific directions to do things, such as get a job, join the debate team or volunteer with children. The appearances are hard for her to believe, even more so as she never knows whos going to turn up next. One minute its a cute boy her own age, the next its the lunch lady or a little girl. Shed been keeping it a secret from everyone, though she has finally revealed it to her artistic and generally sensitive boyfriend, Adam ( Christopher Marquette ), who believes shes been experiencing hallucinations. Rounding out the Girardi family are her art-teacher mother, Helen ( Mary Steenburgen ); her 16-year-old science-geek brother, Luke ( Michael Welch ), and her older, newspaper-writer brother, Kevin ( Jason Ritter ), a former high-school sports star who is in a wheelchair as a result of a car accident. Joans unlikely new best friend is her publicly caustic and rebellious, but privately insightful and supportive classmate, Grace ( Becky Wahlstrom ).
