Moonlighting With
Regarding Act IV, Episode #86314: Maddie & David 'Do It'
The Press After The Big Bang (April 1, 1987 - Present)

After it had occurred
Articles from April 1987-Present

After the episode aired, newspapers and entertainment critics editorialized all over the place. And most either loved it or hated it; there was very little middle ground. Later on, many squarely placed the blame for the demise of the series on the decision to have Maddie and David consummate their relationship. This site most certainly does not endorse that opinion, but rather wants to present the press presentation in its full scope following the couple sleeping together. I can think of no other single scene of passion ever afforded the scrutiny this one was, and I felt it necessary to show representative coverage to make that point.
