    It's a really bad show. O'Connell looks way old now and Belushi I've never liked anyway, but he's terrible in this.

    What are you basing your opinion on? Have the seen the pilot and/or subsequent episodes yet?

    If you're basing your opinion on the short previews that have been shown, I think it's a little premature to say that show and Belushi are bad; also O'Connell looking old has NO bearing on the quality of the series!

    Nice reply kravitzfan12. Stop saying opinions that you don't know. And terrible facts that o'connell looks old,doesn't have anything to do with the show's performance and belushi i think is great but if you have a diffrent opinion thats fine but don't rule out his show after one episode if you did watch it.

    The shows not that bad. However, if you are looking for a good criminal justice show The Whole Truth is a great show.

    Enjoyed it. Really not getting the comment about Jerry looking old. In fact, while watching the episode we commented on his face not changing much since Sliders.

    Did anyone here ever see The Practice? Right now this looks like a weird comedy version of The Practice... heck even the Pilot was similar. In the Pilot for The Practice they're defending a girl who won't plead guilty on principle and the new associate is being broken in. Story sound similar?


    I love lawyer shows... but I didn't see anything great in this one. I'll give it another couple of shots... but right now, eh.

    So it's a really bad show due to one of the actors (supposedly) looking his age (even though he looks the same as he did in Crossing Jordan/Las Vegas) & you don't like the other actor. Wow. I'm glad you took such an in depth look at what I though was a fun & charming episode that flowed freely (Didn't try to stuff to much info down the viewers throats) & looks like it could be a whole lot of fun to watch.

    I like the show too. Just watched last week's pilot as well as tonight's episode right after. Good story with some seriousness moments and some laughs thrown in. Can't wait til next week's show.

    I really hate people saying shows stink when they first started. You have got to give a show a break and the writers, actors and directors to work out the kinks out. When M*A*S*H started it was far from being a hit but it was given a chance and now almost 40 years later its now a classic.

    Yeah, that is right. Maybe like me you did not liked the first 12 seconds of the show, but should have keep on watching, the rest was pretty damn good.

    I like it


    I think it´s great to have a lawyer-show without to much lawyer-talk. The show is smart and funny without being to serious.


    And Belushi is just hot
