Oh, how I wish that someone would come up with a worthy, weekly competitor to Thursday's ever-dorkier Cosby Show. Sadly, this isn't it. Christopher (Dynasty) Cazenove—the only real asset in an otherwise bankrupt venture—plays a handsome and smart historian who trots around our globe filming a travel series with Margaret (The Secret of My Success) Whitton as his incessantly irritating ex-wife. The network calls this screwball romantic comedy. No, it's just screwed up. If you want romance, comedy and pretty scenery, watch Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous instead.
