    7.0
    Great performances by Glenn Close, Zeliko Ivanek, Marcia Gay Harden, Timothy Olyphant, William Hurt and Ted Dansen. Sadly, the Ellen character was a despicable backstabber and snake in the grass, and the actress, Rose Byrne, has no acting ability.



    The jumping forward and backward in time was annoying and distracting. This series had a lot of potential. The main problem was the casting of Rose Byrne as Ellen, and the directors constant change in timing.moreless

    It had great casting in season 1, acting for Zeljko Ivanek in season 1 and Glenn Close in season 1-2.

    This is response to why would people work for her?

    Obviously written by someone who's never worked in the competitive work environment know as New York.

    You work for people like this because you're being paid at the rate of a renowned neurosurgeon. You're well educated. You're highly competitive and a carrot of more resonsibilty, more power and even greater compensation is being dangled in front of you constantly. You decide to resign and you receive a check for $200,000 to retain you.

    That's why you work for someone like this. So, if you can't deal with this way of life, you choice us obvious. Don't ask why. Just stay in a mundane job for the rest of your life.moreless

    It's a crying shame some of he best known actors would succumb to acting with 2d rate actors for money and or to exalt themselves above those actors in such a terribly written show MFJ made for jerks and idiots . In my opinion ! In the first episode I thought it would be a good show only to fast realize as Elaine said on Seinfeld about the movie The English Patient Can You say IT SUCKED !!!!! AND DOES DAMAGES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ITS IS SO BADLY WRITTEN AND S A HUGE JOKE -DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME... Sorry G C you were great in Fatal Attraction and others but this show IMO hurt you and will follow you along with the other once good actors . .moreless

    I really like the show, but one thing about it made no sense to me.

    Patty Hewes was a bastard to work for. Tom and Ellen worked for her and had other offers from other law firms. SO WHY DIDN'T THEY QUIT AND GO WITH THEM?

    I know it's only a tv show, fiction, but still that part of it made no sense.

    But they did give surprising nods to Smash and The Newsroom. Homeland and Game Change earned the most nominations overall.
