  • In The Motherhood lacks any real life feelings or struggles.

    One of the tag lines for In The Motherhood was that it featured real stories submitted by real mothers. Well, the show could not feel more ingenuine if that was the case. None of the cast is relatable as Cheryl Hines just does not feel believable at all as the struggling single mother. I'm not quite sure what Megan Mullally is supposed to be, but somebody needs to edit her lines because for every witty crack that gets through on this show about 2-3 bad ones are also said. Jessica St. Clair is decent, but her arrogant, new age mom character is amplified too much where as not only is it not believable, but it's hard to laugh at.

    I said that if I gave this show a 6 or higher I would stick around, and it just made that mark, but I think this show is capable of much more.moreless
  • Season 1, Episode 1.

    Very interesting pilot episode. I liked the plots, and the concept for the series is good, but I don't think the series will last very long. It just doesn't seem like it will. But Megan Mullaly is pretty hot, on a side note. I liked when her character, Rosemary, decided to fake a pregnancy. Megan Mullaly is an awesome actress when it comes to comedy. It's nice to see her on TV again. :) I liked Jane's storyline when she was about to have sex in the office with that hot guy. Interesting pilot episode, definitely. Emily's storyline was OK, I guess. Cool episode, though.moreless
