Sasquatch Mountain/Sasquatch Hunters (Sci-Fi 7 p.m./9 p.m.) It’s safe to say neither of these films have made the AFI list. Still, Bigfoot fans may be inspired to watch.
“Garbage Mountain” (National Geographic 8 p.m.) California's Puente Hills landfill may be the largest garbage dump in America, meaning it’s a pretty ripe subject for a documentary. ... Hey, at least it’s not in Smell-o-Vision.
