| Not Knot's Landing!!
A brief check of the cast here would lead you to believe you've accidentally tuned into an episode of Knot's Landing, Dallas or even Falcon Crest. The actors in question even provide a healthy does of big hair, thick make-up and shoulder-pads galore. What you're actually getting here is a 'murder mystery' of soap opera standards. The cast is pleasant enough, the plot is a little whimsical, the story is not difficult to follow. I would never usually watch anything so lacking in a challenge but it was from 1990 with a few well known TV stars of the time so I gave it a chance. It wasn't bad, it wasn't good, it was watchable.

A disliked member of the local school's PTA is murdered, apparently poisoned, and 'hunky' Detective Joe Russo (Ed Marinaro) sets out to solve the murder, and he, along with the ladies of the PTA, work their way through a reasonably light entertainment script to catch the murderer. Columbo it certainly is not but it's worth watching for it's 1990 soap opera style glamour.
