Watch out kids!! It's Mom P.I!!
23 January 2002 | by markrbryantSee all my reviews

Who'd have thought that in 1990, a temultuous troublesome year at best, TV could have served up such a wholesome and delicious slice of fun-pie. A portion large enough for the whole family!! (Even Grandma!!) Mom P.I sizzles as the funny, sexy, and altogether edible crime fighting vixen as we discover that sometimes the toughest thing to get to the bottom of is your teenage son's bedroom floor!! But seriously, if the show taught us one thing (and it taught us many) was that Mom's always watching. So before you go taking that extra bed time cookie take a look over your shoulder or you might find yourself in trouble with Mom. Mom P.I.
