I loved this show. Looked forward to it every week.
22 May 2015 | by conniemac917See all my reviews

Sharon Gless is just one of those personalities that you welcomed into your home weekly as you would an old friend. She made life not seem so brash or unbearable because she had her own problems she shared with you and, oh that sarcastic wit! Come on in and have a cup of coffee or a beer. What's going on? Her work in "Cagney & Lacey" was pivotal in bringing women to the forefront of what women are all about. Her role in "The Trials of Rosie O'Neill" was one of the best and Gless made it her own. She shared her inner most secrets with us in her opening shots at the analyst's office and wasn't afraid to show her emotions and courage throughout the shows too short a run! I miss that show today still. One of my favorite episodes was the "Christmas" themed one. I feel as though this show may have brought a few tears to the eyes of the crew, when it closed down the set. Bring out the DVD, I'm sure there are thousands of fans willing to buy the too few episodes. Count me in.
