Gless is excellent as Rosie
6 September 2013 | by smanning001See all my reviews

I had recently taken out season 1 of Cagney and Lacey at my local library and forgotten how much I enjoyed the acting of Sharon Gless and Tyne Daly (and how much I had missed such quality type shows). So in searching for more shows starring Gless and/or Daly, I came across "The Trials of Rosie O'Neill". I remember watching this show and enjoying it as much as Cagney and Lacey. Different type of show but with excellent supporting cast and great writing. (Gless is recently divorced and trying to rebuild her life as a public defender.) Tyne Daly guest starred in a "reunion" episode. Also, Carole King guest starred in the "reunion" episode. She sang the theme sing that she wrote for the show "I Wish I Knew". Each week the opening song written by King was sung beautifully by Melissa Manchester.

My favorite part of the show was the beginning where she was talking to her therapist. (In real life her husband and producer) Can not believe this show only lasted 2 seasons and is not on DVD.
