'Moonlighting' shines again

Critic's choice : Television

January 02, 2000|By Chris Kaltenbach

Remembered today as the series that introduced Bruce Willis, "Moonlighting" featured Cybill Shepherd as Maddie Hayes, a suddenly impoverished fashion model who finds that one of her few remaining possessions is the Blue Moon Detective Agency, headed by David Addison (Willis).

"Moonlighting" was responsible for some of television's finer hours, including a black-and-white film noir episode. At its worst, "Moonlighting" was a self-indulgent mess.

But "Moonlighting" at its best is worth watching -- which you can do today during Bravo's six-episode marathon, starting at 1 p.m. Beginning tomorrow, "Moonlighting" will air weeknights at 7 on Bravo.
