Storyline

In this detective series with a comical note, Glenn Hall runs an unconventional flashy Private Detective agency in Los Angeles, 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 comes 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, et cetera they want investigated. Written by KGF Vissers

Snoops = V.I.P. rip-off without the camp
27 January 2000 | by Sailor UranusSee all my reviews

My, oh, my Mr. Kelley... How much of yourself did you sell so that the NBC executives would think that this blatant V.I.P. rip-off would be a good idea?

Wow.

For the uninformed (I don't blame you), Snoops is basically V.I.P. without the camp but with David E. Kelley's name behind it. That's it. End of description. Even Snoops' premise is identical to V.I.P. Then the scripts "borrows" very old, very overdone plot lines that's been done since the '80's, if not done earlier and/or done better.

My advice: The original is always better than its clones. So watch V.I.P. instead of this.
