    I really wanted to like this show, but something about it just does not work. They tried to do too much with the pilot, the supporting cast is really terrible and the odd directing style of the camera being right next to Kate Reed the whole time, it just didn't work for me.



    Getting back to the cast, if you look at why so many USA Network shows are great is because they are loaded with entertaining characters. Not this one. In fact, Sarah Shahi's character, the lead, is not even that great. This is an interesting premise, and there were some enjoyable moments, but Fairly Legal has a lot of kinks to work out if it wants to succeed.moreless
