Surviving the Test of Time
- Cagney and Lacey: Vol.1 review by SM
This series stands up to the test time and in so many ways is much better than it was when it was originally on TV. It's an incredible window into the world that was the early '80s; women having a career and juggling work for the first time; the rough streets of New York city that make today's New York appear so tame in comparison and the attitudes and fashions of the time. Mary Beth and Christine could walk down the street today and almost be the height of fashion so circuitous has it become.
The drama is still brilliant with great comedy and touching moments. The crime element is gripping but easily equalled by the stories of the personal lives of the characters. No wonder this series nearly spanned the decade.
