Christmas came early for Jonathan Frakes this year. So why shouldn't he sit here like a little kid would on the year's most awaited day, his legs tucked up under him on a leather chair at Manhattan's Hotel Pierre, grinning from ear to ear, savoring every single magic moment? "Wow!" and "Boy!" keep popping out of his mouth, and his piercingly sky-blue eyes keep getting wider.

Jonathan Frakes, one of the stars of "Star Trek: The Next Generation," is now heading up the WB's "Roswell: The Next Generation." Actually, he isn't changing the title of "Roswell," the network's first-year drama about alien teens. But Frakes, who is an executive producer of the series, is helping move the show in a new direction as it reenters the prime-time schedule tonight. It formerly aired on Wednesdays.

Dinner at Nic's: Friday when I get off work, I go to Nic's, a restaurant run by Larry Nicola in Beverly Hills on Canon Drive. It's got great food, great jazz, great drinks. My wife, [actress] Genie Francis, and I can always get a table there and have a nice conversation over the Nicola oysters, which are infamous. Special Request: Saturday mornings we go to Art's Deli in Studio City with our two kids--who are 4 and 18 months--and they specifically request Julie or Suzie to be our waitress.

A goat escapes from a farm, heads for the Big Apple and ends up starring on Broadway? In "The King and I"? Did someone put some funny stuff in playwright Victor Steinbach's coffee? But wait a minute. Ionesco made us believe that rhinos were taking over the country. Absurdist theater is about speculation, suggestion. Steinbach's "My Life in Art," at the Tiffany Theatre, suggests the kind of subterfuge that goes on every day of the week in the bloodthirsty world of show business.

As if the real world weren't frightful enough, now comes a UPN "reality" series titled "The Paranormal Borderline." Picture this: "Little short off-white beings, naked guys with big black eyes doing things to these people on a table," plus animals being killed and drained of blood by a "short, vicious monster with glowing red eyes" that also flies and looks like a kangaroo with claws, is part feather and part fur, has spikes down its neck and is named "the goat sucker."

As Pinocchio taught us, the transformation from puppet to flesh and blood is not an easy one, and the arrival of TV's "Thunderbirds" in live-action land is a particularly bumpy ride. Ostensibly based on the Gerry Anderson "Supermarionation" action series from the 1960s, the new film borrows its basic setup before quickly deep-sixing International Rescue in favor of a feeble "Spy Kids" imitation.
