Picks and Pans Review: Dear Detective

UPDATED 04/02/1979 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 04/02/1979 at 01:00 AM EST

CBS (9 p.m. ET)

Brenda Vaccaro plays a gumshoe romantically involved with a professor in the premiere of a limited series based loosely on the DeBroca movie. While Arlen Dean Snyder is given lame lines as her boyfriend, the murderous chills and romantic thrills are nicely mixed. Maybe Vaccaro was right to shun Mrs. Columbo (which she was offered before Universal settled for Kate Mulgrew).
