A SEASON OF GIANTS (TNT, Mar. 17, 18, 8 p.m. EST) The life and times of Michelangelo (British newcomer Mark Frankel) are the subject of this lush-looking, silly sounding four-hour miniseries, which also gives us the skinny on the “eccentric” Leonardo (John Glover-who else?), Pope Julius II (F. Murray Abraham), Raphael and Savonarola. In short, your basic Italian Renaissance docudrama.
