  • The pilot is full of feel-good bounce, but it's more than froth. This is good American television drama. Lacking the clockwork precision of the contemporary American movie, it has nuance and allows for an emotional richness. Better, it does the audience a favour by introducing a sly sense of fun.

  • Heather Paige Kent is endearing as Lydia DeLucca, a 32-year-old Italian Catholic from New Jersey, who breaks off her engagement to pursue her dream of going to college. [5 Oct 2000, p.E-03] Show More
