Picks and Pans Review: Charlie Grace

UPDATED 09/25/1995 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 09/25/1995 at 01:00 AM EDT

ABC (Thursdays, 8 p.m. ET)


Mark Harmon stars in a familiar TV formula as a crime solver with personality. He is a private eye whose office is in a bar. And though he maintains a number of scurvy street contacts, he is a sensitive guy—even bringing his own cloth sacks to the supermarket to tote home his groceries.

This is a rather obvious but cohesive attempt to refashion The Rockford Files for the '90s. If Charlie Grace were on Saturday nights, it might attract an audience. But going up against Friends is a kamikaze mission. Sayonara, Charlie.
