Picks and Pans Review: Almost Perfect

UPDATED 10/02/1995 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 10/02/1995 at 01:00 AM EDT

CBS (Sundays, 8:30 p.m. ET)


In the season's most promising comedy, Nancy Travis and Kevin Kilner play a pair of '90s workaholics who are strongly attracted to each other. He's a district attorney for the Los Angeles major-crimes unit. She's a self-described "brainy, successful Hollywood writer," newly promoted to executive producer for a hit cop show, Blue Justice. Consumed by their professions, these two just don't have time for a decent affair. They barely get through the obligatory banter before one of their beepers goes off.

Almost Perfect is almost stolen by David Clennon (who executed a similar swipe on thirty something as Machiavellian adman Miles Drentell). Here he plays one of the Blue Justice writers, an enigma with a twisted mind and a preoccupied manner. The writing is rich, a deft mix of romantic comedy and showbiz send-up.
