    The intentions of the new CBS drama "Christy" are properly earnest, and the premise, locations and supporting cast all exude promise. But in the end, the execution is so ploddingly predictable and - in the case of the star - so shallow that the outcome is a disappointment. [1 Apr 1994]

    What The Outsiders needs is more finesse - some "soc" boys with at least a few redeeming values, some parents who have a gnat's notion of what's going with their kids, more blurred lines between the two teen groups, more background on all these kids, and more sides to their lives and personalities, just like real life. [22 Mar 1990, p.C9]

    There is reason to be concerned about "I'll Fly Away." ... The [season premiere] plays like a high-road, night-time soap. [25 Sep 1992]
