Picks and Pans Review: Barbara Taylor Bradford's Everything to Gain
Think WASPs don't have problems? Think again. Sean Young (No Way Out, Blade Runner) plays a successful art director who tries to rebuild her life after her husband (Charles Shaughnessy) and two children are murdered by thugs. This being television, she inevitably falls in love with the detective (Jack Scalia) assigned to solve the case. Young buys a gun and joins forces with Scalia, an avid reader and a surprisingly good cook, but not before losing the baby she is carrying.
Concerned about her daughter's lingering depression, Young's mother peps her up by saying, "You're young, and you have so much to look forward to." No one, but no one is going to deliver a nuttier line of dialogue this season.
