Garden Gnomes and Severed Heads on the Series Premiere of 'The Protector' (VIDEO)

'The Protector' S01/E01It's hard being a working mom, especially when you're both a single mom and a police detective, as we discovered on the Series Premiere of 'The Protector' (Sun., 10PM ET on Life).

Gloria Sheppard (Ally Walker) is a divorced L.A. Homicide Detective who, with her two kids, has recently moved in with her brother. Gloria has a lot on her plate right now, and between juggling the demands of motherhood with solving serious crimes and catching the bad guys, she's a little busy.

However, Gloria's neighbors think she's got time to investigate a local crime spree, so they send over Katie Silvers to ask for help. As Gloria puts out the trash, a worried Katie reveals that "there have been several thefts in the neighborhood ... and some of us on the block thought you might be able to help."

What's been stolen? Gnomes. Garden gnomes. And that's just for starters. Katie tells an exasperated-looking Gloria that all kinds of lawn ornaments -- flamingos, geese -- have gone missing. Can Gloria help the worried homeowners?

Maybe not. As Gloria puts it, gnomes are a little outside her jurisdisction. But severed heads, on the other hand ... "Now, if you find a severed head, give me a call. I've had a lot of success with severed heads."

Judging from the look on Katie's face, we don't think the neighbors will be asking for help again any time soon. Or for Gloria to carpool with their kids.
