It’s a Wonderful Cyberlife

It's A Wonderful CyberLife (Fri. (6), 9-10 p.m., Discovery) Taped in San Francisco by Termite Art Productions. Executive producer, Erik Nelson; supervising producer, Dave Harding; producers, Michael Brockhoff, Hank Capshaw, Jonathan Taylor; co-producer, Randall M. Boyd; director, Angie Brown; camera, Wes Dorman; editors, Capshaw, Lisa Trulli; production designer, Bill McGirr; sound, Laurie Dovi; music, Mark Leggett. Hosts: Chris Eddy, Eleanor Mondale Discovery's "CyberLife" series rings in the giving season with a special holiday buyer's guide. Lively hour is a buffet of computer product (hard and soft) reviews, tips and trends, with celebrities weighing in on favorite gadgets or websites. Producers try ever-so-hard to jazz up the magazine format. A frenetic pace creates the impression that special is just flogging merchandise. But in reality, what appears to be an infomercial on speed wraps useful facts and opinions about digital culture in an entertaining package. Chipper hosts Chris Eddy and Eleanor Mondale do their part to keep things upbeat and breezy. A lot is covered and true techies will be bored due to a lack of depth. Thumbnail reviews of recommended laptops and desktops divided by price are offered by editors from PC Magazine (their on-camera comfort level varies considerably.) Then there are the celeb "correspondents." Illusionist Penn Jillette (Penn and Teller) visits weird websites and home pages; humorist Dave Barry ("Dave's World") riffs on language in the digital domain; Gillian Anderson ("The X Files") surfs in a Santa Monica cybercafe; LeVar Burton ("Star Trek: The Next Generation") looks at cool peripherals; and Scott Adams, creator of the "Dilbert" comic strip, shows us his home office. Program's graphics are earthbound and camera focus is a problem, most likely due to shooting so many computer screens. Music suits the fast pace. John P. McCarthy
