Sydney: Season 1 Reviews

June 6, 2019
Though burdened by some of the worst writing I`ve heard in some time, it is made relatively palatable by the pleasing presence of Valerie Bertinelli... The reason is that she is pertness personified, and those around her react with according amiability.

When she finally gets around to sleuthing, her first case should be to apprehend the culprit who stole the humor from her show, because the premiere has been wiped clean.

Valerie Bertinelli as a private eye? Yes, it's a laughable notion, and one reason Sydney is better than expected is that it laughs at the notion.

In truth, Bertinelli is miscast, or rather, the show has been misconceived around her. But she brings to it her usual vast reserves of pluck and charm.
June 6, 2019
Bertinelli is so convincing as that tremor of raw nerves Sydney that you can hardly tolerate her and she gives you a headache. Comedies are supposed to give you laughs, not headaches.

It's not a total laugh riot, but Bertinelli holds together a sometimes shaky fort with great flair.
