In
recent years, the native New Yorker has guest starred in every series in the "Law & Order” franchise.

Q: I enjoyed watching the CBS show "The Ex List,” but there were only three or four episodes, and then it was replaced by "Flashpoint.” Did CBS cancel it?

Robesonia, Pa.

A: The romantic comedy was one of the first series to be axed last season, but star Elizabeth Reaser had a professional upswing shortly afterward with the big-screen success of "Twilight,” in which she also appeared. She reprises the role of Esme Cullen in the upcoming sequel, "New Moon.”

Q: I’m looking for a DVD or VHS tape of the 1960s movie "If It’s Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium.” Has it been released in either format?

Bellevue, Wash.

A: Both, courtesy of MGM Home Entertainment. The 1969 comedy about American tourists in Europe — with Ian McShane ("Deadwood,” "Kings”) as the tour guide and Suzanne Pleshette as a sightseer who was his potential love interest — made its DVD debut last year. It’s had two releases on VHS, first in 1993, then again in 2000.

Q: I love the movie "Labyrinth” starring David Bowie. Can it be bought somewhere?

Daytona Beach, Fla.

A: The George Lucas-produced, Jim Henson-directed 1986 fantasy — which also was one of the first major acting credits of later Oscar winner Jennifer Connelly — is available on DVD.
