Mystery Girls - (S01E04)


Holly and Charlie look back on how they went from TV show starlets to real life detectives. Nancy O’Dell from “Entertainment Tonight” guest stars as herself and interviews the Mystery Girls about what brought these two together again. Nick, a “Mystery Girls” fanatic, witnesses a crime and insists on speaking to former co-stars Charlie, a suburban housewife, and Holly, who longs for the glory days when they starred in the show. The infamous duo and former friends reunite and put their TV crime-solving skills to the test.

    The pilot is itself uneven, with the go-for-bonkers impudence of a live-action "Family Guy." But without it, Mystery Girls might be just another ABC Family-com for viewers who have aged out of Disney Channel and silly situations with sentimental topping for studio audience uproar.

    Spelling and Garth were and are [a real team]. Mystery Girls is silly, with broad humor, but the nostalgic appeal of these two broads being back together is no mystery.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Genevieve Valentine

    Most of the show’s meta so far is an expected but amusing sketch of celebrity has-been-ism.

  • David Hinckley

    Mystery Girls is silly, tongue-in-cheek fun where we’re all in on the gag. How long it can be sustained is the question. But for now, at the very least, it’s a much better look for Tori Spelling.

  • Tim Stack

    There is some joy in seeing Spelling and Garth together again, and in some decent bitchy lines (Garth to Spelling: "I see you're still using more makeup than a geisha"). But the only mystery worth investigating is why the series isn't better.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    The show (co-created by Spelling) is standard-issue cable sitcom, with acting that's too broad (Garth is the exception here) and a laugh track that's loud and awkward.

  • Rob Owen

    Mystery Girls has some fun with viewer knowledge of rumors of disharmony on the “90210” set (yes, Shannen Doherty gets a shout-out) even if it all plays to cat-fighting women stereotype. Spelling comes off both worse (she’s mistaken for a prostitute twice in the first 10 minutes) and funnier (she gets the best lines; Ms. Garth plays the straight woman).

  • Jeff Korbelik

    A few more stabs at 1990s pop culture would go a long way in making this better.

    The Lincoln Journal Star Full Review
  • Sarah Rodman

    Ultimately, the show is a silly, flimsy, and occasionally fun summer diversion for Spelling-Garth fans. Everyone else can pass on solving this Mystery.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    We have a hollow, laugh-enhanced comedy in which the biggest draw is Tori Spelling proving she will do anything to remain on television.

    The writing is mostly painfully unfunny.
