What Ro was unaware of when she agreed was that the other panelist in her session is Lawrenceton Police Chief Lynn Smith, who has always resented Ro and the other club members inserting themselves into murder investigations.

Another annoying Marilu Henner episode!
26 May 2020 | by lyndavanleeuwenSee all my reviews

Seriously, what an annoying character Marilu Henner plays in this series along with the female police chief, Lynne. Curious why the two male leads are so similar in appearance: Niall Matter & Peter Benson! I always get confused which is which until I see their roles being played out! We watched this only because of the social quarantine & extreme heat alert outside this week! Light entertainment, but not a "must watch" series!
