Mass TV exposure, warring over multimillion-dollar contracts and drug scandals have shrunk the romance of baseball. Better to return to nostalgic greener days when ticky-tack ball fields were the unrivaled shrines of youth and the mingling of dust and dreams on a sandlot was a metaphor for simple American values. That's exactly what "Long Gone" does, and it works for a while, as this HBO movie (premiering at 8 tonight) initially gives amusing, raucous life to the Class D Tampico, Fla.

The first prime-time dramatic special of the new TV season turns out not to have been produced for prime time at all. "The Drug Knot," airing at 8 tonight on Channels 2 and 8, was made as a "CBS Schoolbreak Special" for a weekday afternoon slot on the network, but with growing attention being paid to the national drug problem, CBS moved it to a more visible time period. Good idea.

The teenage coming-of-age story gets an ever-so-slight tweak in "Struck by Lightning," written by and starring "Glee" performer Chris Colfer, whose character is, in fact, struck dead by lightning in the film's opening moments. Nevertheless he narrates the tale, looking back on his life up to that moment. Turns out Colfer's Carson was a perennial outsider for his literary ambitions and desire to break free of the small town social hierarchy of his high school. Genial and heartfelt but essentially toothless, lacking in either snark or spark, "Lightning" is directed by Brian Dannelly, who previously made the 2004 high school religious satire "Saved" before moving into television work, which seems to have leveled out his style into a flat competence.

Yet another cinematic slice of suburban dysfunction, "The Family Tree" works better as a serious look at a family's second chance at happiness than when it pushes its darkly comic agenda about an Ohio community's various peccadilloes. Director Vivi Friedman's inability to successfully reconcile the film's duality undercuts an eclectic cast gamely committed to Mark Lisson's thematically ambitious, if scattered, script. An ill-gotten clonk on the head gives bitter, two-timing wife Bunnie Burnett (Hope Davis)

The event: In a tent beside the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the Weinstein Co. threw a lively after-party bash, which drew many of the biggest stars who had attended the Golden Globe Awards. There, the champagne flowed, as did the Fiji Water, a sponsor of the effervescent affair. The crowd: After winning for lead actress in a dramatic TV series for “House of Cards” on Netflix, Robin Wright said she was still in shock. Looking especially elegant in her backless beaded frock, she and new fiancé Ben Foster then spent much of the night dancing.
