    'Flying Blind' is the one gem that stands out in the Fox lineup. The first show takes off like a jet. And the second show is even better. If it's against your religion to watch Fox, this one is worth straying for. [10 Sep 1992]
  2. The script crackles with fast, literate humour and deft satire of both yuppie careerists and pretentious, bohemian avant-garde types. Very adult and much more clever than the plot synopsis suggests. [5 Sep 1992]

    The show may never again attain the sustained comic brilliance of last week's pilot. But this is a rarity for Fox: a sophisticated and clever sitcom.

    Too often, the writing stretches for cheap shock -- gags about phallic-shaped food and not wearing undies -- when the shock of Neil's culture clash already makes perfectly audacious comedy. [11 Sep 1992]

    This is the sleeper series of the year. It's a witty knockoff of 'Something Wild' with Tea Leoni a terrific variation of Melanie Griffith's psychotically sexy free spirit luring a straitlaced young man into a life without boundaries. Unfortunately, the young man is Corey Parker, who's about as funny as gefilte fish. [19 Sep 1992]

    Flying Blind tries to transplant the wackiness of old screwball comedies into series TV. The leads have chemistry, but Alicia's way-out, avant-garde world can be a drag. [12 Sep 1992]

    Its makers must be blind to do a hype-the-hip-young-crowd sitcom about instant sex in this age of AIDS. [11 Sep 1992]
