Question: After the tongue lashing you gave Eric S. about ABC's The Shining I'm almost afraid to ask: Is NBC planning to release their version of Carrie on DVD? — Corey H., Sioux Falls, S.D.

Televisionary: Not to worry, Corey. After being dressed down in my Nov. 19 column, Eric S. wrote in and apologized for his mistake, so I'm in a better mood now. (Actually, he said I need to work on my attitude and proceeded to tell me exactly why I was wrong, but, hey — I live in a state of perpetual denial.)

And besides, you didn't dare to present an opinion differing from mine, so you're off the hook. The good news, according to an NBC source, is that MGM plans to release the TV movie on home video. The bad is that they haven't set a date, so you'll just have to keep your eyes peeled.

There — now that wasn't so bad, was it? Other than the part about peeling your eyes?
