Instant Mom is a family comedy starring Tia Mowry-Hardrict (Stephanie), Sheryl Lee Ralph (Maggie) and Michael Boatman (Charlie). The cast also includes three talented young people: Tylen Jacob Williams (James), Sydney Park (Gabby) and Damarr Calhoun (Aaron).

Stephanie is twenty-five. Her husband, Charlie, is an older man who has been married before and he has three children. Stephanie knows very little about parenting, but she's doing her best to be a good stepmother. She's learning as she goes and when she doesn't get something quite right, her mother, Maggie, does not hesitate to lend a helping hand - if Stephanie wants to accept it or not.

I first heard about this sitcom while watching an episode of Tia and Tamera on The Style Network. Tia had decided not to return to BET's The Game. I could see it was a difficult choice for her to make and I felt for her. Not too long after, she received a call from her manager about this role. For a little while there it looked like Instant Mom wasn't going to happen for Tia, but she eventually got the good news. She was extremely happy, of course, and I was happy for her.

I usually add a pilot to my library because it's free ($2.99 isn't much to pay for a HD episode, but free is so much better:), but I paid for this one because I like Tia, and it's a nice family show. Tia is doing a good job as Stephanie, and Michael Boatman's performance is very good. It's a pleasure to watch Sheryl Lee Ralph (I like Maggie's humorous words of wisdom). I like Aaron (Damarr is a little cutie) and James (Tylen is as good an actor as his brother, Tyler, who played Chris in Chris Rock's sitcom "Everybody Hates Chris").

A great family show. Reminds me of the family shows of the 90's, like Cosby show, Full House. Great family entertainment.

Tia is just believable in any part she takes on. She carries the show and when it looks like some of the other actors are not up to her level, she steps in and brings them out and saves the scene. I really enjoyed the first episode. Very entertaining.
