    Shadowing most every encounter and incident are examples of the same sort of bigotry and racism that many other peoples have faced and fought as they dragged themselves into this society. Racist references - the aliens are called slags and spongeheads - are unfortunate and but the most serious of this series' many problems. [18 Sept 1989]

    Though inoffensive, this is as standard as sitcom gets. [22 Sept 1989, p.1]

    So far, the baby's talk is a mix of limp and cheap material. The surrounding chatter from adults isn't much better. [8 Mar 1991, p.5]

    It's but an embryo of the real thing. [16 Apr 1990, p.C7]

    Perhaps there are a few kids who might buy this sort of stuff, but most others will be bored stiff and find pretentious the ways in which Chance maintains that what he is now doing is part of a post-Vietnam guilt trip. The show's main failing is in taking itself too seriously. It's somber when it should be silly. [20 July 1992, p.C5]
