Picks and Pans Review: The Mississippi

UPDATED 03/28/1983 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 03/28/1983 at 01:00 AM EST

CBS (10-11 p.m. ET)

Ralph Waite, who seems permanently typecast as a sage in overalls, goes with the flow as a criminal lawyer who gives up city life to drift down Ol' Man River in a towboat, aiding the yokels. The series is a sometimes suspenseful cross between Huckleberry Finn and Deliverance. (Premiere)
