Rebecca Romijn stars as a private investigator in TNT's "King & Maxwell." In the pilot, the guy she's trailing suddenly sprints off. "Don't run," Ms. Romijn moans. We soon see why. As she pursues on foot, her gait looks like that of a praying mantis.

Same with Anne Heche in her new NBC sitcom, "Save Me." As part of a conversion experience, her character takes up jogging. Which would be fine, except that Ms. Heche's ungainly trot suggests she's trying to wade through barbed wire.

Advice for TV writers: Before you ask your leading ladies to act athletic, you might want to take them out for a test run.
