Give It A Chance
21 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Like another user, I was disappointed in the first episode. David Morse is one of my favorite actors and I agreed that the role seemed unlikely for him and the writing needed some serious help. However, by the second episode, we were pleasantly surprised. We enjoyed it a lot more, and it could have a real future. Sadly, in these days of a show being canceled if it doesn't get enough ratings in the premiere episode, the future remains to be seen. It may take a bit for the show to find it's rhythm... lets hope the execs give it long enough.
