Picks and Pans Review: Dangerous Curves
CBS (Wednesdays, 11:30 P.M. ET)
Two women, Lise Cutter, who appeared in a number of NBC's Desperado TV-movie westerns, and Michael (New Jack City) Michele play a glamorous team of undercover guards for Personal Touch, an upscale security company in Dallas.
The writing and acting are flat, but the pretty faces and itchy trigger fingers make this a good fit for CBS's late-night rotation, Crimetime After Primetime. As a matter of fact, if you throw out Scene of the Crime on Tuesdays, CBS has fashioned itself a serviceable action wheel.
Like the other Crimetime shows, Dangerous Curves is a foreign coproduction. The galling part is that over in Europe they see a more risqué 48-minute episode with topless scenes. We see a 40-minute version, with the sexy parts replaced by commercials. I don't mind living in a puritanical society, but getting a pile of extra ads seems like a pretty lousy trade-off.
