In this detective series with a comical note, Glenn Hall runs an unconventional flashy Private Detective's agency in LA, and means business above all, never mind the rules if she can get around them. Although her ex, police Detective Greg McCormack, now has a dim view of her and her operations, his LAPD connection often come in handy. Investigator Manny Lott (not the only one) is young and charming enough to get where a regular P.I. wouldn't, but often wrestles with his sensitive conscience. The quite varied cases often lead to crime connections, so danger is on the lurk, and some clients are at least as shady as the suspects, partners etc. they want investigated. Written by
In the last three (unaired) episodes, 'Paula Marshall''s character dies. She was replaced by Jessalyn Gilsig, whom 'David E. Kelly' liked, so he cast her in his next TV show, Boston Public (2000), as well. See more »

And that is not a compliment! Yesterday I was subjected to a two-hour block of these paltry shows. The Practice is the alleged "good" one, and this is the one that's supposed to be so bad(I've heard) that if it weren't for David E. Kelley's name behind it, it would be gone. Well, if the folks behind "Snoops" are worried about it's quality and pace, they shouldn't be. Believe me, this is no better or worse than "The Practice." As a matter of fact: it IS The Practice with different characters and different surroundings. For Kelley fans, I guess that's good, but for somebody who hasn't really LIKED a law show since "Feds" left the air in 1996: do we need clones of these shows to keep junking up the air? Honestly, The Practice is bad enough.
I think what made this one "different" is that it's about girl detectives played by actresses that I would never in the least buy in such career positions. Anyway, they were investigating some cult and in vivid David E. Kelley "style", the religious girl was all bad(and utterly grating. I'm not sure who played her, but I wasn't impressed with her screaming)and the "snoops" said "profound" lines about why. I'm sure their was more to the "plot" but I didn't catch it. All I know is that that "masterpiece" The Practice has done a similar show before, as have Picket Fences and probably LA Law and whatever else this guy is behind. But I won't worry about the last two, since those at least had the occasional good episode and are also not on the air. The one that bothers me is The Practice and they shouldn't make the new Kelley show just like it, but it seems that that's what they're doing. I most certainly will NOT tune in when a "snoop" is having a dead-serious conversation about sexual repression with a man, as two characters did on yesterday's episode of The Practice. How tasteless can you get?
