  • Really good episode!

    I really LOVED this episode! SO much happened, and it still felt relevant and not rushed. The actors are doing a fantastic job here (Michael Trucco especially).

    I also loved that the ever so brilliant Peter MacNicol had a guest role here!

    Very moving and engaging story that kinda excercised my tear ducts for a while, there - but I'm a known sap so it might not work for just anyone. ;)

    I just recently started watching this show but I can't stop - it's funny, sad, clever and sweet - and I think this episode was the strongest one so far.moreless
  • A good episode with an interesting case.

    Kate's mediation this week dealt with two topical issues - identity theft and illegal immigration. The twist was, the person who was both illegal and had assumed another person's identity, had also served bravely in Afghanistan. Fortunately for her, she had served with the son of an important client of Reed & Reed. While this was going on, Kate had to come to terms with her impending divorce. I have to admit, the relationship between Kate and Justin has baffled me from episode one. If they were so incompatible that they couldn't live with each other, why were they such good partners in and out of bed? At the end of the episode, it looked as if Justin had finally had enough.moreless

    Taina guest starred on tonight's Fairly Legal. They need to bring that show back, but that's another issue altogether.

    Tonight's episode was really not that bad, but dealing with immigration and visa issues? Really? We have seen that on just about show ever made. Sitcoms have done it, I think Hot in Cleveland has something like that going on. Dramas have done it, it is even plaguing soaps these days like GH and AMC. For a show that has had some fresh cases, I was a little bit disappointed with this storyline.

    But that was not my only gripe. The episode was a little bit slow-moving and the humor was lacking. I watch this show because it is a nice light-hearted legal program. Tonight's episode felt more CBS than USA Network.moreless

    A very good episode of Fairly Legal and definitely a step in the right direction. Things were found out abut the guy who has a quarter of Reed & Reed Law Firm, also we've got a very interesting, complex case to keep us entertained while all of this is going on.

    I doubt Fairly Legal will become one of my favorite shows, but it's watchable, and Kate is really likable, and I just really like Sara Shahi, that's probably why. The rest of the cast haven't really proved themselves yet.

    The relationship drama was quite dull tonight, Kate needs to be single/independent at this point, her relationship with her future ex-husband is just tired and over played. The case was the best part of the episode though. Good installment.moreless

    • Goof:
      When Tim Hemmond is called to the stand in the immigration trial, he is referred to as "Warrant Officer Tim Hemmond". However, earlier in the episode, Hemmond clearly shows the rank of First Lieutenant, as denoted by the single plain silver bar. The Warrant Officer rank insignia for the US Army is denoted by a silver bar with one or more black squares, depending on which Warrant Officer rank is held.
