  • Interesting . . .

    I really liked this episode. I thought it had a unique plot, although I think there was already an episode on baseball players, but oh well. Either way, I still liked it. It has been a long time since I have actually seen this episode, so I am still trying to remember exactly what happened. Therefore I am having a little trouble writing a good review, but I do remember that I liked it. I thought it was sad and a good twist when Annabeth lost the case, that would be her first one. Overall, it was a wonderful episode!moreless
  • Finally, i got to see the great vibe i saw on the pilot.

    I think this is the second best epiosode of the season. I still think that the pilot episode is Nº1. We got to see a great storyline, we know from the beginning who the killer was and the reasons to commit it. Despite the fact he is a consumated liar. To put things more difficult he is a beseball hero and we know how we love and idealize baseball heroes.

    I named this episode: The day Goliath won, but i guess is a kind of spolier. I know we have always waited for this very moment, and the writers put this baseball hero character to show us that sometimes an invented image of some celebrity can affect much more on the jury that the facts.

    I did love that fire, Anabeth showed on court.

    I was a great, great episode.moreless

    I am very glad that they didn't cancel this show

    At all because I loved the first show but it was on

    A very bad night on Tuesday to begin with. Glad that they moved it to Fridays where it is now thriving.

    Our hero lawyer Annabeth must prosecute a star baseball player who has thrown a girl off the balcony

    Which will ignite in sparks flying on and out of the courtroom.
  • SPOILERS INSIDE! Annabeth has to go up against a famous baseball player who illegidly threw a girl off a balcony. One of the best episodes yet, I will tell you inside. SPOILERS INSIDE!moreless

    I will not give it away, but in this episode something happens that most people were waiting for. For some reason, it said it airs tomorrow, but I saw it on Friday so that is why I am writing this. A famous baseball player is accused of throwing his girlfriend off a balcony, but the only witness is a drunk. A very thrilling episode, and it gets pretty intense in the courtroom in this episode. Annabeth also has to go up against his monster lawyer, who will do anything to get his client out of it. Set TiVo to record this CLASSIC episode!moreless
