Originality lies smothered under special sauce and wilting on a sesame seed bun in the science-fiction kiddie show, "Mac and Me" (citywide). It's an amazingly bald-faced copy of "E.

The red-haired, freckle-faced 11-year-old from Dana Point got to fly to England with his mother for filming, met actress Sigourney Weaver and toured some real live castles. And he got an edited version of his cut scenes for his burgeoning portfolio.
