Ask Lindsay Crouse about life with father, and you're likely to hear about "Life With Father." The actress is, after all, the daughter of Russel Crouse, one of Broadway's most famous scribes, not to mention the man who wrote the play by that name. And she's even named after her father's writing partner, Howard Lindsay. In addition to "Life With Father," the Crouse-Lindsay team was responsible for such archly American standards as "State of the Union" (1945), "Call Me Madam" (1950) and "Mr.

The actress is appearing in "The Weir" at the Geffen Playhouse through March 11. Outdoor Living: My favorite weekend would be spent outdoors as much as possible. I love to hike in the Santa Monica Mountains, and there are many trails that are accessible here in the Palisades. From some you can see the ocean and others go up toward Topanga. And there are paths in Malibu that have wonderful wild flowers. I've been confronted by mother and baby deer and lots of little rabbits.

Talk Radio Oliver Stone's 1988 film makes you laugh, makes you mad and keeps you on edge watching for the killers in the shadows. Eric Bogosian stars in this savagely audacious movie of his play that is a dip into the dangerous games played between a performer and his audience, a society and its malcontents and the medium of radio and the faceless voices it broadcasts. Bogosian's baiting call-in host offers listeners a stream of vituperation, abuse and wild sarcasm. Sunday at 9 p.m.

With a film like "Being Human," there is no point belaboring the obvious. Misconceived, misguided and a completely miserable viewing experience, this is one to avoid at all costs and for all time. Given that it stars Robin Williams, was produced by David Puttnam and directed by Bill Forsyth, the fact that "Being Human" appeared in theaters with little advance warning or publicity was not the best of signs. Still, no one could have predicted what a colossus of tedium it turned out to be.
