  1. Sharply written, compellingly acted, this is the crime procedural ABC has needed all along, one for the “Grey’s Anatomy” crowd.
  2. Laura Harris as Jill Bernhardt, the platinum-blonde district attorney, Paula Newsome as Claire Washburn, the surprisingly jolly medical examiner, and Aubrey Dollar as Cindy Thomas, the impossibly young newspaper reporter, do not add up to a Kaffeeklatsch or a therapy group. I’m not saying that they don’t occasionally discuss emotions (usually Angie/Lindsay’s), but it’s more grad-school seminar than touchy-feely hot-tub hangout.

    An appealing cast and a flashy production style bolster familiar material.

    Realism, in other words, is not the show's strong suit; pretty much all of it (the detecting, the lawyering, the examining and the reporting) can be described as "lite.

    Women's Murder Club has the tone of a show that's designed rather than crafted, a show more concerned about appealing to a target demographic instead of just flowing.
  6. For a show like Women's Murder Club to hit its target, viewers need to feel the desire to know these people--either because their jobs are exciting or their personal lives are spicy. But with this show, there's not enough spark to their jobs or lives to keep you on the couch on a Friday night.
  7. 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 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. Expand

    Difficult to develop characters of an ensemble cast in one show, but it shows promise. Angie Harmon hits this one dead on though.

She has a lot of tongue-in-cheek 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. Expand

    It was decently entertaining, and I started to like some of the characters... I say, give it a chance, maybe it will work out some of the bumps.
