    Everything other than Harmon, who has thrown her "Law & Order" reserve out the window, feels unnatural and contrived.
  2. Television's a visual medium, but so much of the plot is advanced during dialogue, I actually lost track a few times and ended up rewatching sections of the episode to figure out how they'd figured out whodunit.
  3. The show inspires nothing but my apathy.
  4. 12
    The new debut episode climaxes with a confusingly written yet completely unoriginal plot twist at the end. And the women characters are less confident than before, frazzled and more judgmental.
  5. 0
    This "women's" show is such an embarrassing mess, it makes me ashamed to be a woman.
  6. 45 minutes of bad writing, bad acting and bad storytelling.

    A bit lightweigth on 4/29 but still has good actors and the plot could be developed. Previous shows have been better, The writer;s strike messed everybody up . I think the show needs a chance. There are many fans willing to support it. I think it has great potential. Full Review »

    It's great to see Angie Harmon back on TV again - and I'm impressed with her comedic ability. She has a lot of tongue-in-cheek lines, mixed in with the serious stuff. Aubrey Dollar is refreshing, but please get rid of that insipid thin-haired blonde, Laura Harris! She is not easy to watch, and who dresses her? Her outfits are awful. Full Review »
