      Robert Bianco USA Today But as a whole, the show is as cute and easy to like as its star, and that's saying something. Rated: 3/4 Dec 13, 2019 Full Review Paul Brownfield Los Angeles Times [Rebecca] Romijn is quite fetching here, both in looks and performance. Dec 13, 2019 Full Review Tom Shales Washington Post It's kind of a bad sign when you wish there were more scenery in a show and fewer scenes with characters and dialogue and stuff like that. Dec 13, 2019 Full Review Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-Gazette [Rebecca Romijin is] too cold and aloof to play the lead in a show that sometimes wants to be a romantic comedy. Dec 13, 2019 Full Review Scott D. Pierce Deseret News (Salt Lake City) Rebecca Romijn is the nicest, sweetest, most genuine ex-supermodel you could ever hope to meet. Which is too bad. This nice, sweet, genuine ex-supermodel is stuck in a vehicle that's, well, mediocre at best. And that's being kind. Dec 13, 2019 Full Review Todd R. Ramlow PopMatters In promotion of its own postfeminist agenda, the show directly blames feminist politics. Dec 12, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member In my opinion Pepper Dennis was unfairly judged by most critics. It also had the misfortune of being the final series to debut on the WB network, which was shuttered and transitioned into the CW. Pepper Dennis was never given the chance to grow into a second season. Perfectly cast, well written, and lots of harmless fun. The core "will they or won't they" romance between Charlie (Josh Hopkins) and Pepper (Rebecca Romijn) is reminiscent of classic series such as Remington Steele, Moonlighting, and Castle. Unfortunately there are only 13 episodes of Pepper Dennis. Thankfully the final episode offers partial resolution for some plot elements, but this series ended far too soon. A very entertaining, light hearted series with likeable actors and characters. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Post a review
