Picks and Pans Review: A Promise to Keep

UPDATED 10/01/1990 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 10/01/1990 at 01:00 AM EDT

NBC (Mon., Oct. 1, 9 P.M. ET)


In this teary, true-life drama, Dana Delany and William Russ play a married couple who must add four orphaned nephews to their already bustling brood, an onus that threatens to swamp their family.

The kids are all right, and Russ as a struggling composer and Delany, as his frazzled frau are adequate. It's an emotional slice of sour family dynamics, a sort of Please Don't Eat the Hemlock. (Delany fans: Saturday's season opening episode of China Beach provides a glance at Nurse McMurphy a decade after the war.)
