  • New direction, but is it a good one?

    Sigh, OK, conflict is a valid plot device, but honestly, the new partner / character makes the episode (and I fear future episodes) not as much fun as in the past. There are dozens of legal series and even legal drama comedies, but Franklin & Bash seasons 1 & 2 were unique and great! I looked forward to watching each episode and each moment.

    Don't get me wrong, change is GREAT! I don't mind change in a series, when it is enhances the series. Unfortunately, I don't see this change as a positive step. The new home / location, now that might be great . . . beach property! Cool!

    Honestly, it was difficult watching this episode without wanting to skip forward. Problem is I was watching LIVE and not recording using my DVR. So, yeah, while I loved seasons 1 & 2 enough to watch LIVE even the commercials, I'm not sure about season 3. If this episode is any indication, I'm going to DVR and well, skip ...

    I'm sure there are people who LOVE this new conflict and I fully support them. I found their courtroom and personal pranks what make the series unique, enjoyable, exciting, etc and (for me) that was enough.

    Only time will tell the tale on the future of Franklin & Bash. Maybe F & B will win her over or get something on her, or something else. If so, I'll go back to LIVE and pick up the parts I skipped over / missed on reruns or Blu-ray.moreless
  • A good, though not great, start to a new season

    Franklin & Bash's third season premiere gives the pair a feisty new boss in Heather Locklear and new case involving a magician who is charged with a theft actually committed by a twin brother no one knows about. To get along with Rachel (Locklear) and save their client (Adam Goldberg) the pair will have to do a little magic of their own.
