    The show is sweet, gentle, sad around the edges. I really love it. [19 Sep 1991]

    Everything about this world is more richly, deeply textured than our own, from the ornate (not luxurious) furnishings to the ornate people. [20 Sep 1991]

    Vital, vigorous television that results in considerably more than Brooklyn abridged. As is true of Neil Simon's "Brighton Beach Memoirs" or Woody Allen's "Radio Days," "Brooklyn Bridge" is a radiant recollection of the boisterous borough, a sweet, affecting ode to a piece of New York real estate and its durable inhabitants. [20 Sep 1991]

    Brooklyn Bridge is like a Woody Allen movie without the neuroses, The Wonder Years without the precious narration. Touching and amusing, it is the outstanding new series this fall. [20 Sep 1991]

    Has Goldberg found anything new to add to the territory? Not really, but he's fashioned a cozy, enjoyable television show of his own, with a script that sounds like the truth, only more so. [20 Sep 1991]

    The episodes have grown slower and schmaltzier since the gripping pilot, but this series is still as sweet as an egg cream made with Fox's U-Bet Chocolate Syrup.

    At its best, which is very good, Brooklyn Bridge rings with fresh and funny childhood observations.
