Picks and Pans Review: Sons and Daughters

UPDATED 01/14/1991 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 01/14/1991 at 01:00 AM EST

CBS (Fridays, 10 P.M. ET)


This sprawling, three-generational, family-drama series set in Portland, Oreg., stars Lucie Arnaz, Rick (Roxanne) Rossovich, Don Murray, Scott Plank and Peggy Smithhart.

Taking the cherished yuppie themes of relationships and children, the show attempts to wring out of them both poignance and humor. The result, contrived as often as it is touching, is a down-scale hybrid of A Year in the Life and Parenthood.

It's a bighearted and ingratiating series but not worth quitting your bowling league to stay home for.
