What saves tonight's show from its technical shortcomings, and keeps it from dissolving into silliness, are the essential decency of the premise and the understatement with which the "miracles" are performed.
No speed limits are broken on the Highway tonight, since the premiere is rather slow. But I wouldn't bet against Landon on the basis of just this. On TV, no contemporary actor knows the road better than he.
If Its honey is too thick for sophisticated viewers, NBC and Landon are counting on great numbers of viewers who are sick of crime and violence and gratuitous sex to turn to this show as a remedy. It could be a good bet.
The program isn't as dumb as it sounds, and if Landon continues to lend his varied talents to it the show should work its way into the hearts and minds of America in much the same way that Little House on the Prairie struck a chord.
