Not great, but not horrible
How's that for a summary? I watched this miniseries on dvd last night, mostly because of the cast list. It's four separate stories, tied together by Stockard Channing as a psychiatrist who treats someone in each segment. The first hour is "the lesbian hour" with Kate Capshaw and Elle McPherson. The second hour has Rebecca DeMornay, Allison Janney and Glenn Headley as bickering sisters. The third hour (which, I'll admit I only watched 20 minutes of) stars Mia Farrow, Lynne Whitfield, and Linda Hamilton. The final hour centers around Stockard Channing, her secretary (played by S. Epatha Merkerson) and two patients, Camryn Manheim and Peta Wilson. Sprinkled throughout the entire program is Margo Martindale as the neighborhood coffeehouse owner. All four parts were written and directed by Lee Rose. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being high), I'd rate them as follows: Part 1, 5; Part 2, 7; Part 3 (what I saw), 2; Part 4, 8. The acting across the board is a little stiff, almost like it were a filmed play. And the writing is ultra-predictable. Yet, I still found myself engrossed (except for part 3). My favorite part of segment 4 was seeing Peta Wilson in a role about as completely opposite as one could get from her best-known role of ass-kicking, girl-spy Nikita. Other standouts are Channing, Janney, and Manheim. All in all, an interesting psychological drama.

(Note: The dvd does not have a menu or chapter search capabilities, so if you stop somewhere in the middle, make note of where you are so you can forward ahead to that point when you get back to watching.)
