    Not exactly a bad way to past time. Although I have had more enjoyable moments. The Defenders does have its high points although I certainly wished there were more of them. It left me bored not long after I was exposed to it and that certainly is not saying something entirely positive about it. Nonetheless, it is very well packaged so a 7 rating I feel is very fair.

    This is the best legal drama ever, and that's saying something.

    After looking for this series for years, I was able to find it on sell.com. 30 some odd episodes and not a dud in the bunch. I am currently in school with the goal of becoming an attorney. I am fifty years old. Lawrence Preston is my favorite TV attorney, PERIOD. Above Perry Mason, Eugene Young, (The Practice), Alan Shore (Boston Legal), and dare I say... Denny Crane (Boston Legal), my namesake ;-) This series, in my opinion is the best courtroom drama ever made. Sometimes the entire episode takes place in the courtroom. Some of the guest stars include; William Shatner, Jack Klugman, Gene Hackman, Dustin Hoffman, and a nine-year old Richard Thomas (The Waltons). Admittedly, I am a courtroom drama junkie, and "The Defenders" is the best I have seen thus far. Period.moreless
