    The pilot for Harry's Law was quite good, but I think that this could be the beginning of a terrible trend as the second episode was a significant dropoff in quality. Granted, this was still a good hour of television, but I just think it was too generic for me. Just too much of a ridiculous lawsuit in the multiple children thing, and too exaggerated an opposing lawyer with Christopher MacDonald's character.



    I enjoyed the second episode of Harry's Law, but it needs to maintain this quality, or better, for renewal, and I do not know if this show has the legs to do it.moreless
  • If this trend continues, i.e., each episode even better than the last, the show might just be a keeper.

    Heat of Passion touched on some serious issues, but in a way that introduced just the right amount of "dark" humor. It didn't try to beat you over the head with the harsh facts of people living in poverty, and the overpopulation of the planet. Harriet, thus far, seems to be forced into the cases she takes, by passionate and overzealous clients, who simply will not take "No" for an answer. This time she defended an 87 year old lady who robbed a liquor store, at gunpoint, because she had no food. And the case taken on by her partner Adam, was equally compelling. He was hired by the daughter of a Chinese business owner, who fired one of his employees for getting pregnant. It brought up issues of political policies in China, where the government dictates how many children a family can have. We were also introduced, in this episode, to a flamboyant and quirky character (opposing counsel) - it wouldn't be a David E. Kelley produced program without one.moreless
