Picks and Pans Review: P.s.i. Luv You

CBS (Sun., Sept. 15, 9 P.M. ET)


This movie serves as a premiere for a creaky adventure series. Connie (Hotel) Sellecca is a con woman and Greg (B.J. and the Bear) Evigan is a cop. The oil-and-water couple ends up in a witness protection program, posing as a man and wife working for a Palm Springs security company—Palm Springs Investigations, hence the title.

Sellecca gets to show an unexpected side of herself, trying on both light comedy and a Jersey accent (the latter disappears after 20 minutes). Her gyrations are wasted, though, in an embarrassingly stale piece of trash which seems to have been exhumed from a vault of bad '70s TV.

The theme song says it: She: "I wish that you could write me a letter/ 'Cause that would mean that you're far away." He: "Let's try to work together/ 'Cause it looks like we're stuck." She: "I'd rather lick the oil/ Off an old diesel truck."

P.P.S.: Let's call the whole thing off.

Beginning next week, the show airs Saturdays, 10 P.M. ET.
