    Another interesting episode of Fairly Legal. I say interesting, but I really need an adjective to conjures up a more conflicted feeling. Like a few other episodes before this one, there was definitely an interesting plot here. Kate had a tough and unique case to mediate here, but the actual episode itself and the content were disappointing. They go for too many jokes that did not work, as seen in today's episode. The cast around Kate continues to disappoint, and I'd rather have the lovely lady in the super hero outfit become a regular than the ones they have at this moment.moreless
  • I have to admit - the episodes, in my opinion, are not consistent, in terms of quality.

    We are seeing too much of the weaker characters, such as Leonardo, Kate's assistant, and her ex-husband, the ADA who' name I can't remember. We are not seeing enough of the delightful, Sarah Shahi, engaging in believable activities. Given that mediation is a relatively new tactic, in the realm of criminal and civil justice, we should be seeing some fascinating cases. We are not. Something as delicate, and potentially lucrative, as a dispute over who owns the rights to a new technology, would not go to a mediator. The best things about the episode:

    1) Currie Graham as the head of the technology firm(Marsden) - I've seen this actor as a guest star - on an episode of Criminal Minds, and as part of the ensemble cast of Raising The Bar. He is always interesting to watch, and his performance in this was no exception.

    2) Virginia Williams as Lauren Reed - she's finally letting her hair down(literally) - and acting like a human; no more "Stepford Wife"/Barbie doll persona - she is beginning to break out as the most sensible and intelligent member of the cast.

    We'll see if she'll continue to develop and if the show will attract actors of the calibre of Mr. Graham.moreless
