Picks and Pans Review: 7th Heaven
Producer Aaron Spelling, one of the great creative forces of our time (oh, you think I'm kidding, do you?), tries his hand at family drama. Something combining The Waltons and Dynasty might have been nice. Instead, we have Stephen Collins as a minister with a caring, slightly frayed wife (Catherine Hicks) and five children. In the premiere episode, the youngest boy wants a dog, the middle daughter has her first period, and Hicks's parents show up with some awful news. Bland.
