Screen Gems: TV the week of October 3

Sins of My Father (9 p.m. Monday, HBO) -- The inside story of notorious Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobars Escobar is told through the eyes of his only son and features home movies and family snapshots.

POV: The Most Dangerous Man in America (9 p.m. Tuesday, WPBT-PBS 2) -- With massive leaks of classified U.S. government documents turning up on the Internet, this is a good time to look back on a comparatively low-tech leaker: former Defense Department analyst Daniel Ellsberg, who 39 years ago ran a photocopier dawn to dusk to engineer the release of the Pentagon Papers, a secret and devastating government history of the Vietnam War.

South Park (10 p.m. Wednesday, Comedy Central) -- America's most avaricious, foul-mouthed
and disaster-prone collection of 10-year-olds returns for a 14th not-for-the-tender-hearted season.

The Promise: The Making of "Darkness on the Edge of Town'' (9 p.m. Thursday, HBO) -- Bruce
Springsteen burst on the national scene in 1975 when he was on the covers of Time and Newsweek the same week. Then: three years of silence as his recording career sank into a mire of lawsuits. This documentary recounts the making of the 1978 album that resurrected him.

Note: Days and times for PBS shows are for the Miami area, and may differ elsewhere.
