When this show premiered in 1987, CBS hardly promoted it and let it die an unnecessary death when it became a ratings cellar-dweller; to its credit, that summer, CBS did re-run it, albeit briefly and without a shred of publicity, so it died again. If it ever becomes available on DVD, it's worth checking out if only for its star, Margaret Colin, an enormously appealing actress who's almost never disappointed in whatever she's appeared; she's the very heart & soul of this series. The writing, too, must be commended: for instance, this was one of the first network dramas to have an AIDS-driven plot line that dealt with its subject plainly, honestly and without exploitation, but most importantly sensitively. What a disservice that CBS really never gave this a chance to build an audience. Keep an eye out for it!
