The Mysteries of Laura
The Mysteries of Laura premieres on Wednesday, September 17th at 10:00pm/9:00c on NBC.
Official Description: Laura Diamond is a brilliant NYPD homicide detective who balances her “Columbo” day job with a crazy family life that includes two unruly twin boys and a soon-to-be ex-husband - also a cop - who just can’t seem to sign the divorce papers. Between cleaning up after her boys and cleaning up the streets, she’d be the first to admit she has her “hot mess” moments in this hilariously authentic look at what it really means to be a “working mom” today. Somehow she makes it all work with the help of her sexy and understanding partner. For Laura, every day is a high-wire balancing act. (NBC)
Awesomeness of Pilot: 2/10
The Good: There was literally only one good thing about this pilot and that thing was ruined by a plot twist in the last act so I won’t talk about it here. I couldn’t even enjoy Josh Lucas’ face as he’s playing a smug, shitty, dick who the audience is supposed to think is a charming bon vivant.
The Bad: I don’t really feel like I need to elaborate too much here if you read the official description above. TIME may say it best: “It’s 2014, but NBC’s new crime show finds it hilariously strange that its title character is a mom and a cop.” And in addition to how terrible the concept is – I need you to know that the execution is abysmal, the so-called case solving was completely unconvincing, the camera work was a late-90s nightmare, and the only other female character is an uptight harpy.
The Bottom Line: Every time I start a new section of this review I remember another thing I hated about The Mysteries of Laura and feel compelled to downgrade the Awesomeness of Pilot score by another point. P.S. Laura is a bad cop and a bad mom, feminism is dead.

Ironic misandry is over, but cecullen and I decided to deploy our oft-delayed misandry blog anyway. Because we’re rebels. Rebels who’ve been girls this whole time.
Just got to Paleyfest and they announced that the preview screening of Bad Judge has been cancelled. So that seems like a great sign…
I live for dramatic emails from cecullen
This is what happens when you try to send a witch to “”“work.”“”
Oh you are graciously providing me with an unlimited subway pass. Sure. That makes a huge difference. Let’s just see what a difference it makes.
I am back at “”“work.”“”. Vacation is over and that is not charmcore.
