Being a sexist guy, I find myself being surprised that I liked the show as much as I did. I never saw the spring '93 trial run of the show (was it CBS or ABC?) but I caught the syndicated run during '94-95 and was disheartened when it was not continued. Here's a show that puts three young women in basically a guys club. The stories were written with the gals being strong leads with a supporting cast of guys, Tim Thomerson and Joel Wyner (what ever happened to him?) in particular were excellent. The writing I felt was intelligent, and very relevant, and the brilliantly photographed Montreal (did they do any filming in Pittsburg?) made the show incredibly believable. I'd love to see the show run again so I can tape all (including the network episodes) the shows. Hopefully Lifetime or USA will run thru the show!!
