  • Just terrible

    As much as I liked Debra Messing in 'Will And Grace', this show is just terrible. The only reason NBC ordered this show to series was because she is the main lead. If it wasn't her, it wouldn't see episode 2

    Very entertainng. Laura is extremely likable and overall the show is just a good time for the whole family. She is funny, my girls love her ex Husband (Jake from Sweet Home Alabama) and I just love the babysitter. Some reviewers seem to claim that it is is exactly what it is going for, Thank you !!!!

    If you want hard core crime drama, there are plenty of other shows for that. This is just a fun show that doesn't take it self too serious and provides the whole family an hour of good bonding time.

    I really hope NBC gives it some time to find it'S audience. I know my whole family really looks forward to this show.

  • Very rough at the edges

    5.5
    What kind of show gets rid of Enrico Colantoni in the first episode?! Poor use of resources. I do like the rest of the cast though. However nothing is very believable. I saw it compared to Psych in the previous post and even though I see the similarities Psych is (slightly) more credible.



    The characters here are likable but very one-dimensional. Someone said it's like a comic book, but I've read comics that feel more real than this. I do like some of it though - like I said I like the characters and I like the actors. I also like how it is filmed. I havent given up on it yet, but I think it has a bit to go to get a second season (possibly even to get a full first)moreless
  • A bit of a mess but I rather like it so far

    6.5
    In terms of the light-hearted crime drama genre, Mysteries of Laura seems a little unsure of what it is. Parts of it feel like a breezy cop show, like The Glades or Bones, and parts feel like their going for schticky comedy ala Psyche and Monk. The result is neither fish nor fowl, and I don't see the show succeeding if they don't get a handle on it. To me, the show feels it should be going in the Glades direction, but the main thing is, they need to pick a direction.



    However, I like Messing, and I like mysteries, and parts of the show are reasonably funny, so I intend to keep watching and see how it goes.moreless
