Ok, I might give it one more chance
13 October 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was kind of looking forward to seeing this show, so I decided to tune in to the series premiere. It definitely has potential to be watchable, maybe not in a "I'll tape it if I am not at home" kind of way, but I could watch it if I was sitting at home on a Thursday night with nothing else to do.

The characters are interesting, but must they always give the Southern character a horrible accent? If the actress can't do it, it is ok, we don't all talk like we fell off of a cotton truck. Really, we don't.

The only thing on this show that I really hated was the way the scenes changed. The quick views of NYC that transition are a way overused technique, and don't seem to quite fit this show, one that isn't fast paced like an ER for example. In the case of this show, the transitions only gave me a headache.

2 1/2 stars out of 5.. for average.
