Boring, at least until the giant worm monster shows up
24 June 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The inclusion of a giant rubbery monster always lifts these episodes of the MONSTERS TV show, which sometimes has episodes with human monsters or no monsters at all which are pretty boring. THE MOTHER INSTINCT has a storyline about a woman developing a new muscle formula from fruit. Her family life is brought into danger thanks to the conniving actions of her son-in-law, who wants to use the formula to make his fortune.

The storyline is low budget and predictable, with an obvious human villain and dull supporting characters. Still, the presence of a giant worm creature makes it surprisingly enjoyable; not great perhaps, but nonetheless a more memorable episode than many others.
