Awful.
2 May 2004 | by Nick ZbuSee all my reviews

This show is awful. Awful in a way that can't be described. It's not as boring as NBC's Wings, but awful in its very own way. The plot is that when a sheriff dies, his wife takes his place instead of his Deputy Sheriff who...might know how to do the job? The show tries to be feminist without being annoying but only succeeds in being feminist without logic: why couldn't a woman be a sheriff in the first place? But no, she has to be the wife who suddenly becomes a sheriff and gets into wacky situations.

Imagine Three's Company with only Somers and you pretty much got it. Impossible to get through. And I pray to God that the negatives to this show have been destroyed enough to prevent a future DVD release. The only shining point in the whole two years of this is the performance of George Wyner, who finally got his due in Mel Brooks' Spaceballs. That poor, poor man.
