Picks and Pans Review: Tears in the Rain

Showtime (Sun., Dec. 11, 8 p.m. ET)

Sharon (Action Jackson) Stone takes a letter from her dead mother to England to deliver to the rich Lord Bredon (Paul Daneman). But the lord won’t read it. So she hangs around and falls in love with the lord’s son, Christopher (Dynasty) Cazenove. It’s your basic romance novel on TV for people too lazy to read even a romance novel. Stone and Cazenove hate each other, love each other, hate each other, love each other. Terrible, dark secrets pop out at the darnedest times. Rich Arab playboys meddle. And the last line has to be, “I am yours forever.” As a romance novel, I suppose it’s okay. But life would have been a lot easier for Stone and us if she’d just mailed the letter.
