Early attempt to modernize the crusading reporter
10 September 2002 | by purakekSee all my reviews

Saw this series during its short run. Reminds me of a more recent attempt, Deadline with Oliver Platt. In both series, you have the thinking man's reporter. Both are dedicated and both are interested in uncovering the truth within a news item. But Platt's series had better writers, while this Sutorius starrer had more drama rather than brains. It's a treat to see the reporter as a crusader, hampered by obstacles and silence, powered only by persistence. It was a good try to test the stories of the times (i.e., during the 70s) but as I recall, Andros seemed to be a humorless (or unfunny?) character. While it was a breakaway from the stuffy or stereotypical portrayals of press people of the 50s and 60s, it wasn't enough. Lou Grant did it better, but that was an ensemble show. Maybe if the network gave Andros a chance it might have improved and the lead character would have lightened up.
