A single mom NYPD homicide detective cracks case after case while raising wild twin boys and locking horns with her less than helpful police detective ex-husband.

I knew of the show and knew that it starred Debra Messing but didn’t really have any interest in watching it.

The season had ended in America and an ad was played on Australian TV to promote the series coming soon, it looked decent so I though I’d give it a go.

I am glad I did. This is such an amazing show.

Normally I get bored of police shows, they tend to be the same thing every episode, and while this is exactly that, the comedy and the family drama give it a different spin every episode.

While Debra Messing may be the major star and the headliner, this is very much an ensemble cast. I love the whole cast; they all work together brilliantly but also individually and in pairs.

It’s amazingly written, exceptionally acted, quirky, funny, refreshing, different and yet down to earth and normal.

Not having any interest in the beginning and therefore not reading anything on the show, I was VERY pleasantly surprised to see Eric McCormack in an episode. Hopefully Megan Mullally is next!

I will 100% be watching Season Two weekly when it returns!
