For the Girls' Sake
17 July 2006 | by (CGSM,Soseaua Nationala 49) – See all my reviews

Lynch knows how to do some gracious,suave,etc.,portraits of women.We get a sample of his skills in this episode,where one has the chance to see this show's ALL four beauties (Lara Flynn Boyle,Mädchen Amick,Peggy Lipton,Heather Graham) ,three of them together.

Mrs. Graham enters the show.

"Audrey" is out for a nice picnic with guest star Zane,all is supposed to be calm,but unfortunately manages to look lugubrious,as if the two were out for a funeral,not a picnic.

Ian Buchanan is again very good and entertaining .

Towards the final,Lynch tries hard to get burlesque with the weasel stuff,but he is far from succeeding,except in a pejorative sense,the scene is disappointing,mechanical and dumb.("Moonlighting" often managed to have exquisite,tasty burlesque finals!)

I liked Lara Flynn Boyle,Heather Graham,Peggy Lipton and Ian Buchanan being in this show;for me,this is enough to provide a pretty good 5o min. show.But the rest is so fake,shallow,pointless and senseless.
