‘Tales of the City’ revival misses some tales worth telling

“Tales of the City” was groundbreaking when Armistead Maupin began writing it in the 1970s, and still felt very much that way when it became a PBS miniseries in 1993. After two follow-ups, the show makes a much-belated return, this time as a woefully uneven Netflix version that makes “Tales” look stale, proving even with the near-mystical 28 Barbary Lane, you can’t always go home again.
