  • Tonight we got to see into the past of our favorite lawyer Elizabeth Canterbury and her sons kidnapping

    10
    On an emblessed Monday night, when i usually watch television, I once again tuned into Canterbury's Law, one of my favorite shows. In the episode, Liz defended a man accused of committing a crime, and than digging up the body. Liz believes the man is innocent, because he claims that he has information about her missing son, Sam, who is seen in the opener, on the day he disappeared. Hmmm. Could it be that the trouble in her struggling marriage could be partly because of the little boy's disappearance? She believes the man is innocent, because he claims he is psychic, and has info on Sam. He is later released from prison, and the charges are eventually dropped. Another great episode.moreless
  • Great episode. Twists, turns and interesting story line.

    9.0
    I really enjoyed the pilot last week but I was concerned that future episodes may slide into prosecutor or police bashing. That would be a huge turn off for me. Well, I was very pleased this week. The characters were well represented on both sides of the issue. I loved the story line. It was NOT predictable and I was left guessing until almost the end. They also took a risk with the whole psychic thing but I liked it. As for Julianna, she was incredible. She's hard as nails but she has this amazing sensitivity. She is sarcastic and witty one minute. The next, she is tearful and vunerable. Her performance is Emmy worthy. I'm definitely ready to see more.moreless
  • More about Canterbury's past...

    8.6
    So, it is every right to say - this episode was totally about Canterbury and about her past - previous episode already gave us hint that there might be something bad happened with her child, now we learn - that he was just taken. That is the problem of her marriage.. and counseling does not seem to help it. So, when a case just comes to her, she first believes that the man is innocent and then it more and more starts to look like that man might be the one who took her son.. but the truth is not so easy - the man was innocent as she thought first and she really believed that he is a medium and took him to the playground where he was last seen - nothing but it looks like this is a potential future storyline...



    Really good one :)moreless

    • D.A. Zach Williams: (standing with Canterbury and the Louis Minot over a freshly dug-up grave) So I think I understand now. You were just out strolling in the warehouse district and you decided to stop here and dig up corpses, am I right?

    • Elizabeth Canterbury: (to D.A. Williams) I guess once you lose, you really, really lose.

    • D.A. Williams: I shouldn't be surprised, Liz. I knew you had a soft spot for the psychotic, but show and tell?

    • Louis Minot: I have information about a man who disappeared a while ago.
      Elizabeth Canterbury: What kind of information?
      Louis Minot: Well... he's allergic to peanuts.
      Elizabeth Canterbury: I'm very busy, Mr. Minot.
      Louis Minot: I'm sorry. I also know that he was killed... horribly, and buried and I know where the body is.
      Elizabeth Canterbury: You have information on an open murder investigation? (Louis Minot nods in agreement) So have you gone to the police?
      Louis Minot: Not yet.
      Elizabeth Canterbury: Why not?
      Louis Minot: (as he opens his duffel bag to reveal a human skull and bones) Because they are going to think I did it.

    • Louis Minot: Mrs Canterbury, I'm Louis Minot. I saw your picture in the paper this morning and said to myself that lady looks nice, stubborn and bossy, but still nice.
      Elizabeth Canterbury: Thank you, I think.

    • Chester Grant: You might want to put on some mittens because it's cold in there. I am never getting married!

    • Elizabeth Canterbury: Why did we take this case again?
      Russell Krauss: A- Mr. Mantisoto wanted the best in the business and B- I just paid the water bill in coins.
