    The pilot is itself uneven, with the go-for-bonkers impudence of a live-action "Family Guy." But without it, Mystery Girls might be just another ABC Family-com for viewers who have aged out of Disney Channel and silly situations with sentimental topping for studio audience uproar.

    Spelling and Garth were and are [a real team]. Mystery Girls is silly, with broad humor, but the nostalgic appeal of these two broads being back together is no mystery.

    Most of the show’s meta so far is an expected but amusing sketch of celebrity has-been-ism.

    Mystery Girls has some fun with viewer knowledge of rumors of disharmony on the “90210” set (yes, Shannen Doherty gets a shout-out) even if it all plays to cat-fighting women stereotype. Spelling comes off both worse (she’s mistaken for a prostitute twice in the first 10 minutes) and funnier (she gets the best lines; Ms. Garth plays the straight woman).

    The show (co-created by Spelling) is standard-issue cable sitcom, with acting that's too broad (Garth is the exception here) and a laugh track that's loud and awkward.

    A few more stabs at 1990s pop culture would go a long way in making this better.

    The writing is mostly painfully unfunny.

    At times reminiscent of "Will & Grace", but it is a very funny show, funny and enjoyable. Gradually we become attached to the characters and I can't live without this series! Expand

    Good lord, this show is bad! I can't think of anything else to say. Damn, I need 150 characters -- is this enough? Let's just reiterate -- THIS SHOW IS REALLY BAD! Expand

    Bad, bad, so very bad. Horrible acting, horrible plot lines. Tried two episodes, didn't even make it through the second one. Jenny Garth's talent is wasted and Tori Spelling is just a joke. Expand
