CLUE (Philips Media, for CD-i, $49.98) Here’s a treat for PBS fans: a droll British adaptation of the popular board game, featuring live-action reenactments of crimes, detail-packed photos of murder sites and weapons, and oh-so-proper snippets of narration. Desperately eager to please, Clue sometimes goes a bit overboard — the game’s simple declarations (such as ”I was in the billiard room with Colonel Mustard”) are turned into Miss Marple-style monologues, and I don’t suspect you’ll be catching the overemotive cast on Masterpiece Theatre any time soon. But not to worry; it’s all in jolly good fun. B+
