    Shaping up nicely.

    Seeing as the show will be cancelled, I didn't see the harm in reviewing it this soon. I don't normally review a show this early in its life, but considering the premise and basic nature of the show, it's pretty obvious where it's headed. This is no bad thing as the show even in its early stages is well written with an excellent and very familiar cast. Maura Tierney sporting a short new hair-do after recovering from breast cancer performs engagingly and it's good to see Rob Morrow still fresh from the recently cancelled Numb3rs, who plays well off Tierney.

    If this show manages to survive, and it certainly deserves to, I expect it to get better as we become more accustomed to the characters. Good show.moreless

    Cut down before its time

    The Whole Truth was a show that had potential. Both the prosecutors and public defenders were fun and snarky- Rob Morrow and Maura Tierney played well off of each other, Christine Adams is beautiful and statuesque, and while the cases were convoluted, they were entertaining in that Jerry Bruckheimer CSI sort of way. While it may sound endlessly shallow, I still feel the show would have been better if Tierney wore a wig to evoke her look in the days of ER... people may feel that's an unfair or silly criticism and for those people I have one word- 'Felicity.' In the end, this was a fairly competent legal drama that for unclear reasons never caught on- I hope they will at least have the decency to air all of the episodes in time.moreless

    I tuned in mainly because i love Rob Morrow. I may keep watching just to see where they go with this.

    I almost turned it off in the first 15 min to study for an Econ quiz. I kept watching because i wanted to see the part with Rob Morrow. Maura Tierny and Rob Morrow are both great actors and they both play their respective characters well. Over the last 6 years I've gotten used to Morrow as the tough, justice seeking FBI agent on Numb3rs. It was interesting to see him play a defense lawyer and more of a loud character.



    The show premise is interesting showing both sides of the law. However in execution was a bit off. The pilot did show both the defense and the prosecution but it came off as more of the usual law show where the prosecution gets the bad guy. If in the next few episodes they show more of the defense defending the not guilty guy. And then kind of alternate it might turn in to a decent show. To early to tell and it will probably get canceled anyway. Although because it's on Wednesdays it may have a chance.moreless
