    This is what I was worrying about. After a great start to Harry's Law we get two real clunkers in a row, and each episode has gotten progessively worse.



    The obligatory former David E. Kelley show star has already appeared, and this time it was Eugene from The Practice in an uneventful and unexcited role. Somewhere a copy of The Shawshank Redemption on DVD looked on in disgust.



    The one good thing about this episode was Tommy Jefferson repeatedly saying, "Pee pee squeaky little bug." Other than that, it was tough to find a bright spot. Maybe Harry calling out the parole board? But even that pails in comparison to her closing argument from the pilot.



    Jordana Spiro was good on My Boys, but this role is not right for either. Just another mistake this show has made.moreless
  • Had to watch this twice before I could rate it - after second viewing, decided I liked it.

    Harriet's relationship with her latest client was realistically tense - both actors were great in their respective roles. I remember Steve Harris from The Practice, and always felt his icy stares were unnecessary. I was glad Harriet became annoyed by the dirty looks as well, while still defending her client to the full extent of the law. Her rant against the Parole Board lady was delivered in what I have to call "Kathy Bates speech" - only she could have done it. I am also enjoying the continuing presence of Tommy Jefferson - he is the perfect "fool" to Harriet's straight man. I'm glad he'll be appearing in at least one more episode. Another home run for Harriet's Law.moreless

    I love this show. The more I watch it the more I am addicted. Its different and that is what I like most about it. This episode added Steve Harris to the mix. I love him and miss his old legal show. Please bring him back as a regular. That would be a great addition to the alread great cast. Please keep this show on...I know the audience will build once they see that it isnt going to be pulled like so many other great shows that arent given a chance! I look forward to the next weeks episodes as they look to be as interesting and exciting as the last three.moreless
