A great show with a great theme song
21 January 2008 | by copax7See all my reviews

Sharon Gless does a great job in painting a complex and interesting character in this show. It's a truly adult part and one that doesn't pander to anyone. More importantly, it's a show that is carried squarely on her shoulders and she does it with passion and compassion. It was great seeing Tyne Daly guest star as a very different character from "Cagney & Lacey." And having Carole King sing the theme song (along with the other characters) was a real treat as well. The theme song for this great show was indeed written by Carole King, but recorded for the credits of the show by Melissa Manchester. Unfortunately, the song has yet to be released.
