    I like Debra Messing. I like light-hearted mysteries. Which is why I'm so sad that I just cannot like this show.



    The series is all over the map, parts of it feel like a breezy cop show, like The Glades or Bones, parts feel like their going for schticky comedy ala Psyche and Monk, and then it will get all serious. Sometimes the humor is successful, but overall the series is neither fish nor fowl, and it feels uncomfortable.



    In spite of a lack of enthusiasm I watched the first few episodes, but I gave up near the beginning of episode 3, which fell into the category of the "very special episode" where they spend a lot of time mourning someone you don't care about, and also tossed in a very cliched crazy guy. The "very special episode" is one of those things that should rarely, if ever, be done, and the fact that they did one three episodes in shows how tone deaf the show's creators are.



    Also, she's such an awful person. In the beginning of the episode she denies her children broke her neighbors window because she doesn't want to pay for it. And she doesn't even castigate her children for it. Seriously?



    Everything about this series is just off. I hope it gets cancelled so Messing can move on to something better.

  • It felt well paced and doesn`t try too hard to be too funny

    8.0
    The first time I watched this show I immediately felt that I liked it. The show does a fair to good job balancing the crime drama aspects with the comedy aspects like the Brooklyn 99 series on Fox and it felt that the writers of the show managed to keep every episode move steadily along without dragging on too much. I honestly think that this show does have a chance to do better along the way like Bobs Burgers and The Benny Hill show did, since they became TV hits despite the fact they had a lame first season start.moreless
