    Murphy Brown: Season 2 is a horrible show, I can't stand the acting and the story is pretty damn bad.
    In all honesty I think the only reason it has such a high critic review average is because it's owned by CBS.

    Rarely has a cast been so perfectly chosen and thoughtfully developed as the crew on "Murphy Brown." [14 May 1990]

    The sitcom doesn't get any better than this. ... Over the last year... 'Murphy Brown' has evolved from a clearly promising idea... into a landmark series.

    A series that started out merely good and has now become, like NBC's "Cheers," a comedy essential, a good reason to stay home and laugh. [18 Sep 1989]
