    TV Picks: 'Trip to Bountiful,' 'Resurrection,' 'QI,' 'True Detective'
    "The Trip to Bountiful."  There are few roles that allow women of a certain age to display the symphonic skill it takes a lifetime to acquire, and fewer still that exist outside the realm of high-drama one-woman shows. But there is Horton Foote's lovely and lyrical tale of Carrie Watts, a woman obstinately battling the restrictions of age and dependency to return to visit her hometown of Bountiful once more before she dies. Written in 1953 as a teleplay, "The Trip to Bountiful" originally starred Lillian Gish. In 1985, it became a feature film starring Geraldine Page, who won an Oscar. Last year, Cicely Tyson took Carrie to Broadway and won a Tony. This year, Tyson and some of her supporting Broadway cast bring the story back to television roots on Lifetime.
