Something borrowed, something formulaic - but what the heck
2 October 1999 | by (Wellington, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

With so many disappointing one-hour action-comedies out there, Pointman stands up fairly well. Sure, it wasn't going to win any awards for originality, nor Emmys for acting, but it was an enjoyable and entertaining series.

Jack Scalia plays Constance Harper, sent to prison after being set up by a colleague. After getting out, he is armed with certain tricks of the trade, and a list of people who could help him-or go to him to seek help.

There are tones of The Equalizer here: Harper renders his services for free, fighting for the underdog, and is even prepared to invest substantially doing so—and this is no surprise, for Maurice Hurley executive-produces and writes certain episodes. Unlike the earlier series, it is not gritty, nor dark—Pointman was made in Jacksonville, Florida, with all the sun that city provides.

Most of the episodes lie between action and comedy and delivers the former in a fairly well sewn-up fashion. The plot holes are not particularly numerous—Hurley, Stephen Hattman, Jamie Paul Rock, Jon Cassar and others have seen to that with their usual professionalism—and each episode is pacy, fun and enjoyable.

Occasionally, it's nice to watch something formula; Pointman filled this role infinitely better than most other 1990s American TV series.
