Shinjuku Boys (9pm BBC2) Lonely Japanese lesbians in denial can go down to the racy Shinjuku district of Tokyo and hire an onnabe - a female cross-dressing as a man (most look like backing musicians for Showaddywaddy). This is an escort service with one fixed destination - the neon-filled Club Marilyn, where sex is not an issue - although some clients push more than just karaoke and conversation.
The Dream Team (11.15pm BBC1) In what sounds like a One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest retread - but self-consciously isn't - four lovable crazies on an excursion from their mental asylum come detached from their doctor and find themselves at large in the unstructured loony bin that is New York. Michael Keaton is the only one with a violent streak, and he elect-rifies an otherwise likeable but rather senti-mental comedy. He is ably supported by Peter Boyle, Christopher Lloyd and Stephen Furst.
