A True Piece of Art
6 May 2000 | by (Brooklyn Heights, New York) – See all my reviews

The first TV series in over 10 years that I could bare. The show lasted a short time, but the memories of it last forever. I think it really showed a more sophisticated plot line and superb actors who do really great jobs. Do yourself a favor, find this show in your local listings in repeats, and watch it!
