Picks and Pans Review: Dream on
HBO (Wednesdays, 10p.m. ET)
Watching this sitcom about the sexual misadventures of New York City book editor Martin Tupper (Brian Benben) enter its sixth season is sort of like going to eat again at your favorite restaurant. You've tried everything on the menu, and your taste buds are beginning to crave something a little new and different for a change. There are still plenty of amusing one-liners, but judging by last week's episode about the malfunctioning of Martin's, uh, manly equipment and this week's installment about a lesbian friend (Annette O'Toole) of Martin's ex-wife (Wendie Malick), I would say that Dream On doesn't seem quite as inventive as it used to be. Still, it is superior to most of the dreck on the networks.
