This is an excellent show. It is fast paced most of the time, enjoyable, and often comical. The only thing people who turn it off within five minutes need to remember is that it is made for television, not necessarily the way things really roll.
It is a show you can pick up on any episode and still enjoy even if you haven't seen any of the previous shows. You'll be missing a little info that way, but it's still good. I have watched each episode as it came on and thoroughly loved it, have even managed to get my husband to watch and he's all sorts of into criminal justice. Some things he agrees with and some things he tears apart, but as he puts it "the unreal parts sometimes make the story."
