    Everything about the series is cuddly instead of crackling, simpy instead of sexy. Cassidy seems more like an Amherst sophomore than an off- season mechanic, while Hardin flounces around like a perky princess...The dancing itself, although relatively racy for prime-time placement, is not so much dirty as slightly soiled. [28 Oct 1988, p.6]

    Twisting up his face in perpetual puzzlement and speaking in a strange accent that sounds like a combination of Belfast and the Bronx, Segal, who looks more and more like a younger version of Burgess Meredith, takes on a character who, in his own words, has "a track record like dog poop."

    Lacking the charm and bite--however inconsistent--that was evident in the original, the series is reduced to limp dialogue exchanges ... as well as garbled cliches ... and reflections on American mores from the stereotypical, transplanted executives. [5 Dec 1986]

    The only possible reason for tuning in to Down and Out is to watch Mike the Dog do tricks and Anita Morris do aerobics. [24 July 1987, p.C7]

    Routed as the most promising new series on the woeful CBS fall schedule, Designing Women disappoints. Already tiresomely pegged as a younger version of "The Golden Girls," it seems more like "The Carping Capitalists." [29 Sept 1986, p.7C]

    If Coach were a college football team, it would be Columbia - before it broke the notorious losing streak. [28 Feb 1989, p.C5]

    Unyieldingly unfunny, Nothing in Common is dragged down by the overeager-to-please, full-court-press performance of Waring, and the tedious script by--depending on which network credit you believe--Samuro Mitzubi or Garry Marshall. [2 Apr 1987, p.C15]
