Picks and Pans Review: Pacific Station

UPDATED 09/16/1991 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 09/16/1991 at 01:00 AM EDT

NBC (Sundays, 8:30 P.M. ET)


Of the new season's silly egg-in-the-face sitcoms, this is one of the funniest. Robert (Benson) Guillaume plays a conservative cop in Venice, Calif. His partner is Richard (The Fanelli Boys) Libertini, a touchy-feely '90s guy. These expert comedians are backed by a colorful cast—Ron (Kaz) Leibman as a sleazy detective, Joel (Grand) Murray as an incompetent captain and, in future episodes, Megan (Slap Maxwell) Gallagher as another squad member.

The chemistry and writing are good. The set, with a holding cell right in the detectives' room, even looks like Barney Miller, the show's obvious progenitor.
