So... are The Mysteries of Laura worth taking the time to solve?
NBC offered up a special presentation of Debra Messing's new drama last night, which featured the former Will and Grace star as Laura Diamond, teased by the network as one bad mutha, putting criminals away during the day and dealing with two crazed twins at night.
Unfortunately, The Mysteries of Laura Season 1 Episode 1 painted this character instead as simply one bad mother.
The tone shifted often on the pilot, with its opening few minutes depicting Messing’s law enforcement officer shooting off a criminal’s eat and then going home to find her sons peeing all over each other.
(At least they inherited their mom's good aim!)
