    This is a very enjoyable show and I hope it stays on. One of the very few shows I would schedule to watch!! It has emotion, realism and yet it is entertaining. I like the unique law drama with a strong character like Elizabeth. She does a wonderful job. I also like the side drama of her personal life that gives it depth. She is a passionate woman who breaks traditional rules for justice...that is fantastic. Most people I introduced this show to just hadn't viewed it before and got quite attached to Elizabeth and her drama as I did.moreless
  • I get really tired watching this show! Because ... one minute I love it ... then I hate it ... then I love it again! I love the idea of the show but I really hate some of the characters ... they are a real wind-up!moreless

    9.3
    The biggest wind-ups are the Deputy Attorney General Zack Williams - who I know is supposed to be hateful and hated ... and the problem is ... he does a really good job at that(!) and then there is her husband - Matt - who is played by the gorgeous Aidan Quinn - but whose character is such a pain in the rear! He so needs to be slapped into next week when he blames her for losing their son. And when I am getting all wound up with these characters ... I know that there is a basis for a really good series! You want her to win every time ... you want her team to win for her ... before you know it ... you are rooting for all of them ... except maybe their receptionist ... again with the slapping ... he is too twee for his own good! The overall aspect is quite edgy ... but maybe it is not edgy enough ... after all it is supposed to be a more serious, grown up version of either Ally McBeal or Boston Legal ... maybe heading towards The Practice ... it needs more fine tuning and then I really think it has great possibilities!



    btw ... does anyone else think Elizabeth and Russell could end up an item? I am sure I saw sparks this week!



    What I would not like to see is a sugary ending whereby the son suddenly comes marching back ... let's keep it real!moreless
  • I love this show. I loved this actress on ER & I love her on this one. The writers did a good job of bringing a law show that focuses both on the trial but also on the lawyers themselves.moreless

    I look forward to this show each week. I think it does a great job at keeping you on your toes and guessing as to what will happen next. I like Canterbury in that she's a tough chick but really has a warm heart and you see that when she deals with those she really cares about...especially when you see her have to talk about Sam. I want this show to continue and really hope that it does....I'm also hoping that they will find Sam. I hate that all these new law shows get tossed on Friday nights and then cancelled - like Conviction. They really are good but it's hard for a new show to compete when they are on Friday nights. I think that they should give newer shows a different night to at least build up the fan base before they throw them into the Friday night heat. You're throwing them on a night when people are going out so less are at home watching TV at 8pm. I think for the show to have a chance it should be moved back to another day of the week (like M-W) and it SHOULD NOT go off the air. It's just getting started - it'll be cruel to take it away now.moreless
  • Liz's 'bending the rules with the foster case via jury tampering. To get a feel of what the juries are thinking, Frank goes undercover on jury no 7. Liz gets into the hot seat while her actions are being investigated. Her colleagues are in the hot seat.moreless

    3.0
    Honestly, I feel as if I have given this show more time than its worth, I find the plot lines too predictable....esp where they Liz 'heroic' whilst bending the rules....and they try to bring some tension into the plot via her getting 'caught' and probably in real life one would have to pay for 'tampering with the jury' via disbarment....but in Liz's character and seeing the show is called 'Canterbury's Law' - it becomes so predictable that she will end up - 'unscathed'!......so as mentioned before.....a little too predictable whilst making 'non-sense'. Instead of seeing flashbacks of Liz in the playground where she lost Sam, maybe we can see flashbacks of all her energy or devastation during the weeks/months that followed after his disappearance.moreless
  • great show with great actors.

    Canterbury's Law follows a passionate female defense attorney, Elizabeth Canterbury, who pushes the envelope to protect her innocent clients.





    Joining Elizabeth at Canterbury and Associates in Providence, Rhode Island, are Russell Krauss, who used to work under D.A. Zach Williams, but was forced out because he stood up to him; and Associates, Chester Fields, who is a Congressman's son, and Molly McConnell, who doesn't always agree with Elizabeth.





    Back home, Elizabeth is married to Matt Furey. Things have been rocky since the disappearance of their six year old son Sam.Because of the Writer's Strike at the end of 2007 and beginning of 2008, thirteen episodes were ordered, but only five were able to be completed for this seasonimoreless
