  • This is the most loathsome, repugnantly ugly piece of television I've seen in a long time - cynical, cheap, tawdry, pretentious and manipulative. [18 Sept 1992, p.E1] Show More

  • A rather bent sense of humor -- woven into a nice little whodunit -- is what lifts the flawed-but-engaging premiere of Picket Fences above the ordinary, raising expectations for the future. [18 Sept 1992, p.F1] Show More
