A.U.S.A.

Show Summary

From Richard Appel comes an situation mid-season comedy show A.U.S.A.! From three-time Emmy-award winning executive producer Richard Appel ("The Simpsons," "King of the Hill") comes this footloose legal comedy about a new class of idealistic but all-too-human Assistant United States Attorneys who struggle to make their way in their personal lives while making a difference in the cases they prosecute every day in New York City. Adam Sullivan (Scott Foley, "Felicity") is a promising young A.U.S.A. whose intelligence is bound with a gullible nature that presents an uphill battle in his pursuit of both career and romantic success. At work, he must argue cases against Susan Rakoff (Amanda Detmer, "The Majestic"), a beautiful and savvy public defender who regards the A.U.S.A.'s as enemies of the people. Adam is also challenged by his reluctant supervisor Geoffrey Laurence (Peter Jacobson, "*61") and a wide-eyed paralegal Wally (John Ross Bowie, "Road Trip"), whose social ineptitude is matched only by his newfound devotion to Adam. Working alongside Adam as an Assistant U.S. Attorney is Ana Rivera (Ana Ortiz, NBC's "Kristin"), a former cop with the street experience to compensate for Adam's occasional naïveté. Also in Adam's life is his roommate Owen Harper (Eddie McClintock, NBC's "Stark Raving Mad"), a trusted friend who reminds Adam of the lighter side of life outside the world of federal prosecution.

    Finally a show that has a likable main female character.A.U.S.A.is smart, cunning, and a little trickster. You never know what she is going to do next. Unlike The characters she does not get everything she wants and then whines about. Unlike the Vampire she isn’t blessed with special powers and does nothing but complain about them. A.U.S.A.powers are her brains and wit. She works for what she wants. Though I think wanting he is wrong because even though he is cute he is also pretty dull. he would be a much better match for her.moreless
  • A.U.S.A. blew past my expectations. At first, I had expected same old same old plot development but twist after turn of excitement and action just way exceeded my expectations.

    A.U.S.A. blew past my expectations. At first, I had expected same old same old plot development but twist after turn of excitement and action just way exceeded my expectations. Mind you, there were some problems (most discontinuity issues) that I don't have the time to mention but all in all, a solid 9.

    I'm not a huge game show fan, but this show was hilarious! I am extremely shocked to see that it has gotten such a low rating. Did the people who rated it so lowly actually watch it? I like Paul Reubens quite a bit. Sure he layed it on a bit thick as Troy Stevens, but he was parodying game show hosts. I don't remember a whole lot of it, but I do remember one hilarious bit--the million dollar question. One question was worth one million dollars. The only caveat was that the amount would begin going down as soon as Troy began reading the question. Something would always interrupt Troy and he wouldn't be able to get the question out. By the time he did, it was worth condiderably less than the promised million dollars.



    Did people not get that this was a comedy? Maybe they just didn't appreciate this type of camp. Whatever the reason people didn't like it, they were wrong.moreless
  • I laughed when I saw this show.

    Four episodes into the first season and "A.U.S.A" is having the funniest first season (in my opinion) since "Cheers" debuted all the way back in 1982. I hope the cast and crew are able to keep up the hi/low combination humour for the rest of the season - if the show even HAS a full season. Apparently "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here" is just TOO tempting in that time slot for the mediocre masses to even consider changing over to a show with an actual talented WRITING STAFF. Oh well. Hopefully, like 'Cheers" (which was dead last in the ratings for its entire first season) and "Seinfeld" (which also took a very long time to catch on), somebody at the network will take this show under a wing and let it cultivate popularity. But more than likely, it'll simply be cancelled before it even has a chance.moreless
