Picks and Pans Review: She Woke Up

ABC (Sun., Jan. 19, 9 P.M. ET)


A wealthy Santa Barbara socialite (Lindsay Wagner) goes into a coma after being attacked in her bath. When she wakes up 14 months later, she can't recall her assailant's identity, but her memory is returning in shivery little shards.

The usual flock of suspects hover, including David Dukes as her lizardy, polo-playing second husband (hello, Claus) and Doctor Doctor's Maureen Mueller as Wagner's duplicitous sister. The plot makes for a moderately suspenseful whodunit, though the execution is false and mannered. The cast seems to be trudging through a summer-stock production they only had a week to rehearse for.
