Well, Hollywood has set for yet another TV show, based on someone’s agenda. In Justice is about the latest in the mid-season shows that attacks yet another of America’s institutions with the worst-case scenario and making it the everyday, common fact.
In Justice focuses on the occasional…yes, damn it, the Occasional, misalignment of Justice and false imprisonment of individuals based on bad evidence, or testimony or false testimony. It’s a fact that in a justice system as large as ours, that this happens. But to make it entertainment, and preach weekly of the “bad” system we have of judging people is pure agenda driven crap.
I don’t see producers running to make shows at the miscarriage of justice, like the OJ Trial. Of runaway juries with their own ax to grid, or about extremists doing acts of domestic terrorism, like ELF. Naw, that won’t happen because it doesn’t attack America itself.
In Justice is just plain Agenda TV targeting for the mindless, that group, which is part of the Blue State Entertainment community.
This is such a prison break rip off. Can ABC get an original idea already.all their shows a complete rip offs of shows on other networks. and usually their original shows end up getting cancelled. lost is just a piloted version of survivor. This show is going nowhere andwill be cancelled after the first week
Apart from being badly acted with hackneyed story lines and utterly predictable, this program is demonstrative why "The Practice" became unwatchable while "Boston Legal" is a hit.
The reason is that the former took itself seriously and pretended to be a "snatched from the headlines" show while Boston Legal is pure fiction and doesn't pretend otherwise.
Some of the glowing reviews at TV.com (which are at odds with the newspaper critics who call it bad to mediocre at best) are tyhe results of wishful thinking.
The defense lawyers are "heroes who save the innocent and convict the guilty?" In which altenate universe? Defense lawyers jobs is to exonerate the guilty and the fictional "National Justice Project" would quickly go out of business if it relied on the existence of "thousands of Americans wrongfully convicted in America every year."
The cops are almost uiformally corrupt and brutal, the prosecutors venal, and the public defenders - who work darn hard in real life - are all porrayed as schlubs.
If the ACTUAL ratings (third among the big three and a rank of about 50) are any indication the viewers will be spared a cruel and unusal term of this program.
This is an enjoyable show that raises some interesting questions not typically considered by primetime TV.
It has been well established that the legal system often convicts innocent people. This show dramatizes the complexity of how that happens. We might even get some ideas about how to make things better! Insights are good things.... There are definite comedic points in the interplay of the ex-cop team leader and the politico head of the project, the team leader and the women.
At times, the forensic examinations reveal really interesting tidbits that are very clever.
It is fun to watch this show, and given some more time, the characterizations will get better. Good stuff to be aware of.
I know that there are diferent tastes, I know that everyone is not obligated to like what I like. But, sometimes I don't understand american audience and/or american networks.
Why do some shows have great sucess on Europe and are completly "axed" on the states? Is it because every network has this shows at the same time?
For example: In Europe "Commander In Cheif" & "In Justice" have good enough audiences. And shows like "Dancing with stars" & "Angel" are completly abominated.
This is was a good show, you may not like some of the actors but Conti, Brianna are good actors and the plot and the originality of the show was really good. I don't like Law & Order too mutch but I understand why they have sucess. I can't understand why this shows don't!
- Good idea for a show, done very well.
- Story lines are well paced & thorough.
- Attractive cast conveys passion for "doing what's right".
- While character interactions are well done, writers need to avoid excessive "soap opera-like" secondary story lines.
- Importance of issues and execution of subject matter well blended with levity and some lightheartedness, avoids the show being too melodramatic.
- Entertaing & intelligent the show maintains interest while conveying important message. Alomg the lines of Boston Legal, but not quite as well done.
- Worth watching, you'll become a fan if you give it a chance.
- ABC should invest in it, bring it back & give it a chance.
Key lawyer has some characteristics of real-life, flamboyant lawyers but he is not the sole focus of the show. Interesting relationships with previous police officer and female members of the In Justice Foundation. Reminds me of fine ensemble cast of L.A. Law years ago.
Its future will depend upon the continuation of very interesting writing. Another focus on crime and law stories in general. Not as specific as a Criminal Intent or Crime Scene Investigation. But still quite appealing in its use of forensic evidence to free the injustly prisoned.
Episode on January 20, 2006 portrayed some real issues that alleged juvenile offenders may face. Parent would do well to take note and educate their teenage children.
I\'m disappointed with the network for not bringing this show back! It was the only worthwhile show on Fridays that I watched and I enjoyed the stories very much. The basis behind the show was to help those that the Justice System failed, and that was original given the fact that all other legal or crime dramas focus on the current and investigations surrounding recent crimes that have not yet been tried. \"In Justice\" gave a unique spin on that and because the case was cold and \"wrapped up\", the paths they had to take to find the evidence made the show more interesting. A real shame :(
In Justice is based around a team of people who work for a laywer (David Swain) and an ex policeman (Charles Conti) and work to free people who have wrongly convicted and have been placed in jail (most of whom are innocent).
It has been a very underrated show that deserves so much more from the producers and is up there with Criminal Minds (in my opinion is better, although Criminal Minds is one fantastic programme) and deserves as much praise as that has received.
The show works well mainly because of the way the characters interact with each other and how they react to each other and also to the public.
In my opinion the show has worked well because of the differing storylines which all have something distictly different about them whether it is armed robbery, murder or something much more minor, they all feel different and you never get the feeling of dejá vú with the storylines. Of course this shouldn't have happened yet anyway because there have only been thirteen episodes.
Although all episodes were of a high quality my personal favorites have to be 'Lovers', 'Side Man', and 'The Public Burning'. The last one is a particular favourite because it was one (if not the only one) where they didn't win the case and have a happy ending.
Hopefully in the future the producers/network will come to their senses and bring another series to our screens.
Great show about how corrupt the justice system can be. And about law firms(and the lawyers who work for them) really do it in the name of justice. How over worked and under paid they are and thank God there are lawyers who do this.
All of a sudden it gets yanked. No one says it's not returning, no explanation, just bye. Ditto "Close To Home" that aired on Friday nights. That show was terrific. People don't have time to sit down and complain and with all the cable channels they just switch to other shows. Years ago the consumer got what they wanted. When Cagney and Lacy was pulled, so many people wrote to the network it was put back on the air and went on to win Emmy's and I believe ran for five years. I can understand the show Conviction. It was just another Law and Order spin off, but now where is Cane???
It is the best TV Series I have watched in the last months. The main idea of the series is quite appealing, focusing something new and in a refreshing way. I do have some concerns regarding the people that may have been unjustly judged and are incarcerated and I was pleased to watch a series that focus on that. I also would like to emphasize that this TV Series is an example of good work, good taste and commonsense without the unnecessary violence that we have been watching over the years.
The show is the only decent and suspenseful show I have watched so far. The characters are real people and yet you wish there are more people like them in real life. Taking the show off the air made me feel I have been cheated. These are lawyers and would be lawyers willing to spare their time to bring about justice. While watching the show I wish practicing real life lawyers are watching the show to make them realize that this is what the practice of law is all about. It is not all about money. It is very obvious the show was abruptly taken off the air. The big question is \"Why?\". Please bring this show back.
I am so, so, so very sick of the networks cancelling shows before they even get a chance!!!!! I am afraid to like anything anymore for fear of it getting cancelled!!!!! In Justice was one of the best shows I have seen in a long time! The cast was outstanding (other then Kyle MacLachlan, who thankfully wasn't a major part of the show). Jason O'Mara as Conti ... wow! And the supporting cast was a dream I thought. Please, please, please bring this show back!!! I looked so forward to seeing this show each week. Please give it another chance!
With all the junk reality shows on TV, they cancel this one? What a joke. This was a wonderful and sensitive show. It delved into human emotion wonderfully. It was a show that took you out of your existence, which is waht we want from a show. Pull you in so you are unaware of what is going on around you. It had wonderfully emotional moments, maybe that is why it was cancelled. I know I will definitely miss it. The acting as well was very good. I think everyone should write to the developers and get it renewed, maybe on another network. It deserves better tan what it got.
In Justice has a totally believable story every time with sad parts, funny parts, intense moments, and just enough action. Each episode is pretty realistic moving the viewer along through all the emotions. It has refreshing insights that just about anyone can relate to. There’s enough surprises and mystery to keep you guessing, but enough stability to keep you coming back to watch the next episode.
In Justice has a great cast, set, writers, and a great message, which is what any good show needs to keep airing. I hope to see this one on the air for years to come.
This was a great show, but obviously quite under appreciated since it appears its no longer on the air. I think maybe it was the victim of a poor time slot, under-marketing, all the usual suspects I guess.
I thought Marisol Nichols was a breakout star on the shot and Kyle MacLachlan (not sure how to spell that?) was great too. I\\\'ve seen that Marisol is coming back in \\\"24\\\" so that provides some solace, I suppose.
I wonder if there is anywhere we can vote for them to bring this show back, although I suppose it is too late now - oh well...
In Justice was a smart, challenging and interesting drama that brought an interesting new dimension to series television. The cast was fabulous, the writing outstanding. Please bring this quality product back!
In Justice challenged it's audience with smart writing, an engaging cast and questions about our society and the justice system.
We need shows that provide entertainment but also challenge our thinking and broaden our understanding of people, the court system and how even good, honest people (witnesses, victims, police officers, etc.) can get things wrong. And how power can corrupt others.
This show was a smart, challenging and interesting drama with heart that brought an interesting new dimension to series television.
We need more shows of this quality.
Therefore, I appeal to the network and producers, bring this talented cast and insightful writers back. Bring In Justice back!
What a great show. It was a glimpse in to the life of the justice system and how things go wrong. Its amazing what the people from the National Justice Project can gather up about people that the police never did. They don't work in the best of offices but they still get the job done. To them it is personal sometimes and they will do whatever it takes to see justice done right! This show is great. Someone is finally fighting for the innocent. And most importantly they are being set free! If you want to watch a thought provoking show, this if the it!
My favorite show this season. I\\\'m so fed up with networks showing 4-5 episodes, then taking it off the air. Who are they polling? They are not polling regular old joes. That\\\'s for sure. Please stand up and get these networks to poll country-wid
I Want the National Justice System to get their air time. They appear to be the only ones in this entire country to give a \\\"you know what\\\" about justice. I\\\'m not saying that everyone is innocent, but there is a chance that someone is. This show depicts the things that happen everyday. Everyone in America should want America to have fair trials. I\\\'ve seen money watch a personal case just like the rest of you. We\\\'ve all seen cases that we thought were fisy. Let\\\'s show America that we care. I\\\'m not against the death penalty At all. I just want to make sure that everyone is knowledgable about the thousands of death row inmates that are exonerated every year. This show gave us a glimpse of that. Everyone in America should be shown this and unfortunatly, the only way it can reach some is through primtime tv.
I like how they figure things out by the slightest details that the average person doesn\'t catch. It really makes you think. I would like to see this show come back on the air. I looked forward to watching it. I had it Tevo\'d each week and now there are no new episodes. I\'m bummed. My best friend watched it too and we would talk about it sometimes. My husband had to go to jury duty recently. He learned a lot and this show just gave us a different perspective. There was also a big article in the paper recently covering how innocent people are sent to jail.
i am a new mother, and friday night tv isn\'t all that great. When In Justice came on i had a show to look forward to, it was a great drama that had a great cast. If not on friday, put in on any other night i just want it back. Or i will be left channel surfing!
This was the best show yet! Where has it gone? I haven\\\\\\\'t seen it in a month, at least. This show has the others beat hands down! It is clean and I am comfortable with the youngsters in the room. Which I can\\\\\\\'t say for most of the programs that are on during prime time. It holds your attention and I couldn\\\\\\\'t wait for the next episode-but I bet it\\\\\\\'s been a month!!
Please bring it back!! And any night besides Friday would be good.
it is a great shows, i couldn\'t wait to watch it and i wish that the dvd will come out soon. my family and i are the big fan. keep the good works. i hope that there are many good people like that in our world not just in america but everywhere in the world. everytime when i watch this shows, i always cry and if it\'s relly happens to me i would appreciate these great people to work hard to help the wrongly convicted. i love all the cast, they are great actors and actress. keep up the great works.
This has been one of the best newly introduced shows this season. It leaves me on the edge of my seat every week, watching as Conti and crew try to free someone who has been wrongly convicted of a crime from prison. It amazes me how they are able to go over such minor details of a case to find that loop-hole that will hopefully get someone out of prison. Great cast, great show, and I will continue to be a devoted fan!!!!

Each and every family should sit their children down and explain to them that INNOCENT men women and teenagers are put in jail/prison everyday. This show depicts what families especially children go through when trying to prove their innocence and what the honorable lawyers go through fighting for their freedom. This is a brilliant television show and should have been introduced to television audiences decades in 1960 or maybe even earlier. After so many years of watching men and women being murdered year after year and the rest spending their precious lives behind bars because a judge/lawyer/police officer/witness or other person will not come forward with the truth to free these people it is about time that a little light is being shed on this subject.
This show is excellent. It was a good idea to primer it after desperate housewives on Sunday night. I probably would have never watched this show because of the night it comes on. Who is home on a Friday night? Now that I have watched it I think I am hooked and I will have record the shows. I still think it needs a better night.
I love this show. Eventhough i just started to watch it, i cant get enough. No instead of getting people to go to jail like CSI and Law and Order. These people are consectrating on getting the innocent out of jail. This is really nice thing to do. Its also not boring, the ends arn't predictable i really like that. This is a fabulous show!
I liked this show very much. It was about this group that helped wrongly convictied people get out of jail. I found it very touching and sad at some times. The one where they couldn't get the man out or off of death row made me cry. Especially when he was pictureing a happy place when he was getting injected. Very moving stuff!!!!
A bit unrealistic but a fabulously made show! Great actors, and great writers combined with neat editing and amazing (but sometimes over the top) story-lines makes this a really nice show.. a must watch!
InJustice is definitely much better than most of the other stuff on these days.. I really hope it catches on..
wow! great new show. Love how they took a typical law and order type series and gave it a new sort of twist. Can't wait to see what will happen later this season and hope this show doesn't get cancelled. also i think the characters rock! swain and conti make me laugh everytime, they work really well together. so i say go in justice!!
