A family drama focused on three generations of women living together in Hartford, Connecticut. Amy Brenneman plays Amy Gray, who left New York City behind and now works as a family court judge. Karle Warren plays Lauren, Amy's daughter; Tyne Daly is Maxine, Amy's tough, opinionated mother.
Judging Amy has enough rough edges, racy storylines and coarse language to turn away the Touched By an Angel crowd. However, it isn't gritty enough to put a dent in the audience for Brenneman's old colleagues at NYPD Blue.
Occasionally Judging Amy, a new CBS drama series, rises to heights that actually are dramatic. But mostly it just simmers sleepily, a bland and timid concoction straight from the TV equivalent of the supermarket shelf.
Amy benefits from a strong cast and a slightly harder-nosed attitude than its treacly forebear [NBC's Providence], but if this judge doesn't stop wearing her robe like a security blanket soon, she's going to try our patience.
Tyne Daly energizes CBS' Judging Amy whenever she appears. The problem is that Daly isn't the star of this legal/family drama. NYPD Blue alumna Amy Brenneman is, and though quite appealing, she can't elevate a conventional, sappy show.
