    "Priceless" shows that Fairly Legal actually could go down from its pilot episode, something that I really did not think was possible, but I was proven wrong here tonight. The cases were just too idiotic, and they went for yet another emotional moment. I am not saying Sarah Shahi can't pull it off (although she has done better in the light-hearted segments so far than the heavy-hearted ones) but if you do this every week you are going to scare viewers off, because they expect fun when they watch a USA Network show, not sobbing.



    Just a bad effort all around from Fairly Legal here.moreless

    The lowest rated episode as of February 2011? I don't know about you guys, but I really enjoyed this episode. This is the first episode I have watched from this series, and it's weird because I'm usually not in to lawyer shows like these, but this episode really opened my eyes to whole new genre.



    From what I saw, the cast was great, acting was good, the stories were intriguing and unusual. The leading lady who plays Kate does a phenomenal job in my opinion. The scene where Kate destroys the store with the falsely accused man, I just loved it. I love the angle of this series, a mediator who breaks all the rules. I definitely saw a lot of heart, will be tuning in next week.moreless
  • This wasn't as strong as the first episode, but once again, Sarah Shahi as Kate Reid, brought her sparkling personality to the program, and was able to "light-up" a dark storyline.moreless

    In this episode, we were asked to imagine what the loss of freedom might mean to us, and whether or not a price could be placed on this precious commodity. Kate is asked to mediate a settlement between the state of California, and a man who was incarcerated for 22 years, for a crime he didn't commit. As a side issue, working this case allows Kate to put off something that for her is very unpleasant. We see her use every excuse to reschedule a meeting with her brother and stepmother, for the reading of her father's last will and testament. While I am not thrilled (yet) with any of the supporting players on this show, I continue to be surprised at how much I like Kate. She so definitely fits in with the rest of the USA network's characters.moreless

    • Kate's Wizard of Oz Ringtones
      It seems that after the pilot, the ringtones of Kate's brother, assistant, and ex-husband is no longer Wizard of Oz related (it is now just a standard ring). Only her stepmother's 'Wicked Witch' ringtone remains the same.
