    Very pleased. I'm trying to figure out where they set it -- somewhere in Ohio, it sounded like.

    I thought it was pretty good, quite entertaining throughout though a tad too sentimental at times.

    Here are the ratings for Pilot:

    10:00 thru 10:30: 10.933 million viewers with a 2.2/6 in the 18-49 demo
    10:30 thru 11:00: 11.145 million viewers with a 2.1/6 in the 18-49 demo.

    I really enjoyed the pilot episode. At times, I thought it moved a little too quickly, but I like the chemistry between all four of the leads, and think Kathy and Nate are going to be terrific with Kelley's dialogue.

    The Pilot has captivated me. There are only a few Pilots out there that I think mark the potential of the show -- Harry's Law was one of them.


    If they keep up the good work (and improve), then this is a show that deserves success. I'll keep watching!

    Deadline is reporting that NBC is now planning to air all 13 episode of Harry's Law, rather than the 6 that were originally planned:

    "NBC had planned to air only 6 of the 13 episodes of Harry's Law on Mondays before Parenthood moved in; now it will extend the run of David E. Kelley's newest legal drama."

    That's definitely some positive news!

    Very enjoyable, I liked the characters but it did tend to get a little sappy at times but for the first episode it was more or less very interesting. I'll tune in again!

    Guess i'll be the bad guy I didn't care for this episode very much it felt like an even sappier version of Outlaw which is an accomplishment in and of it's self but the only character I truly liked was the security guy I think his name was Damian, the lawyer guy was pretty entertaining at the arraignment and them adding the drug addict as the paralegal really pissed me off as I have a passionate hatred for those of his ilk, sex and porn I get even food when i'm feeling especially liberal but every other addiction just annoys me

    Mr. Kelley is brilliant. I will give you that. But, why? why? why? Does he have to inject his politics into each episode?

    I loved Boston Legal, I just couldn't do it anymore. He hates Bush and God. I get it. Can we move on to the witty banter and well written episodes?

    I watched with trepidation today to see when he would take a swipe at the right. Took about a half hour.

    I just wanted to be entertained, not preached to.

    I really enjoyed this show, but what am I going to do? My Mondays at 10pm already have my DVR locked up with Castle and Hawaii 5-O. I can't even watch Harry's Law on the same TV with those two shows recording at the same time. Do I give up Castle, but what about my love for Nathan Fillion? I need alternatives.

    I would watch Kathy Bates in just about anything - glad she's giving series television a try!

    Here are the ratings for Heat of Passion:

    10.37 million viewers total with a 2.1/6 in the 18-49 demo

    Great episode! While I really enjoyed the pilot, it paled in comparison to this one!

    This show is good, but the whole law for the poor thing seems like the potential spin-off idea at the end of Boston Legal. This is an OK show that's mixing in humor with law, but I think it would have been much better as the BL spin-off instead of just starting from 'scratch.'

    Because he's right, and it also adds humor and a special something to the show. It's his show, he can put anything he wants into it. Don't like it, then don't watch it.
