Kirstie cast

"Kirstie" review by Suzanne
Airs Wednesdays 10/9c on TVLAND

I really love Kirstie Alley, and she's a great actress. She really deserves better than this awful show that's not very funny. The show has a wonderful cast, too, that includes Rhea Perlman and Michael Richards as well as great cameos by lots of awesome actors like Christopher McDonald, Gilles Marini and Kristin Chenoweth. I wish that were enough to make me want to keep watching the show.

I'm not saying there aren't a few laughs here and there, but mostly it's just awkwardness and obvious jokes you can coming a mile away.  Alley plays Madison Banks, an aging Broadway star that meets the son she gave up 26 years earlier (Eric Peterson, who also does a great job).  She's the stereotypical selfish, clueless actress.  There are some poignant moments, too.  The writing is very uneven. Perlman looks very uncomfortable and Richards has most of the best lines, mostly about taking drugs or being crazy (echoing his Kramer role).

I can't believe they canceled "Happily Divorced", Fran Drescher's TVLAND show, that was very funny, for this.  UGH.  I hope it gets better, but it won't unless they completely overhaul the writing. Sorry, Kirstie!

We need more episode guide recap writers, article writers, MS FrontPage and Web Expression users, graphics designers, and more, so please email us if you can help out!  More volunteers always needed!  Thanks!
