    The Huntress has a lot going for it. O'Toole is smashing, the script is a nice mix of comedy and action, and these quirky but well-drawn characters actually have heart. [26 Jul 2000]

    Played straight, it would surely be tiresome. But presented as an off-kilter spoof, and draped around a winningly drawn central character, the premise has promise.

    What lends this passionate new USA Network drama series much of its idiosyncratic energy is an exceptionally committed performance from the exquisite Annette O'Toole. [24 Jul 2000]

    To become more than middling in tone and entertainment value, the show will need to let loose its based-on-fact restraints and allow the punches and punch lines to flow with greater freedom.

    If the series is to find its legs after tonight's shaky first installment, it will have to recapture the movie's spirit. [26 Jul 2000]

    The comedy dominates so much that the forcefully dramatic situations - when O'Toole's character explodes with a verbal or physical outburst, for example, or when they're put in physical jeopardy - seem woefully out of place, almost like spoofs. And even those don't seem to be taken seriously by the characters, so why should viewers react any differently? [26 Jul 2000]

    USA should toss this series into the clinker. [23 Jul 2000]
