SUMMER TV REVIEW: Scoundrels

Based on the European show OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNE, SCOUNDRELS was the sleeper surprise for me this summer. It stars Virginia Madsen as the mother of a clan of convict-type kids who decides to go straight. The pilot was a successful blend of comedy and drama that set up the direction of the show for the episodes to come. I hope SCOUNDRELS can maintain it's unique flair. It will take a miracle to get picked up, so at this point I am just hoping ABC will finish the promised 13 episodes without a sudden cancellation. That would make the network the true scoundrel if in fact that happened. B+
