Delta: Season 1 (1992-1993)



Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.


Tv Season Info

A would-be country singer named Delta Bishop leaves her husband for Nashville and takes a job waiting tables in the same bar where Patsy Cline used to sing. Delta's no Patsy, and, for Burke, `Delta' was not a successful follow-up to `Designing Women': it was put on hiatus after 11 episodes in the fall of '92, and canceled for good after returning briefly in the spring of '93.

Critic Reviews for Delta: Season 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

There is a certain spirit to the show. Burke isn't a designing woman anymore, but she is a perseverant one in this show, and that's almost enough to cut through the corniness. But almosts just aren't good enough.

This redneck rialto is definitely on the lowbrow side and a little thin in the script. But it's brisk and breezy with a promisingly loony supporting cast, including Gigi Rice, Beth Grant and Bill Engvall.

There are scenes that play like outtakes from Hee Haw.

Only a real rube, in fact, would be interested in this corn-pone comedy, its second-rate "Steel Magnolias" tacky sensibilities and a star who's trying so hard it seems cruel to watch.

Never quite a wildly tantalizing prospect to begin with, "Delta," the new situation comedy starring Delta Burke, arrives on ABC... as sodden and bloated as an overcooked dumpling.

From the moment Reba McEntire starts warbling the theme song, Delta seems all wrong.
