I loved it...
11 April 1999 | by Fred-172See all my reviews

I did not get to see Heart of the City during its original run on ABC in September of 1986. I was fortunate enough to see the program again a few years later on FoxNet when they re-ran old series to fill the off network slots before their syndicated series started. It was an excellent program about a police detective whose wife dies. So he works at night to stay at home during the daytime so he can keep an eye on his teen-aged children. Robert Desiderio was excellent in the lead. An emerging star also appeared in Christina Applegate in the role of Robin Kennedy. The show dealt with issues like sex, the death of a parent and troubled youth. All in all a wonderful, thought provoking piece of work that deserved better. I hope to see the episodes again. Catchy opening music as well.
