November 05, 1989

When "Wiseguy" premiered, it was compelling and absorbing. The first two story lines were by far the best. Ken Wahl was an attractive, unknown quantity who exuded mystery and sensuality. Not any more! The gratuitous and rather explicit love scenes with his amour, which incidentally had little to do with moving the story line ahead, were extremely distasteful, and the mystique of Wahl was dispelled by the unattractive grunting and thrashing about, which left this viewer ready to tune out. Was it really necessary to fall in line with so many of the odious concepts that are accepted today as entertainment?
