  • Hart, Ford and Bell return for their second of law school under Prof. Kingsfield. The first year students start driving Hart crazy for his prior year's Contract Law outline.

    8.4
    After being revived from death in network television, Showtime took over production of "The Paper Chase" in the early 80s. This first show re-introduces Hart, Bell and Ford as second year students, and John Houseman as the intimidating Professor Kingsfield. Jane Kaczmarek is introduced as first year student Connie Lehman and as a love interest for Hart.



    Lehman and the other first year students struggle with Kingsfield's Contracts class and - desparate for good help - drive Hart crazy for his own Kingsfield outline from the prior year. Hart is reluctant - he wants the 1-Ls to go through "the process" of writing their own outlines and learning how to think about the law on their own.



    James Stephens (Hart), Tom Fitzsimmons (Ford) and James Keane (Bell) slip easily back into their roles.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Hart enters the room for Kingsfield's first seminar, Kingsfield doesn't know who he is. This is very odd, considering that Kingsfield took Hart with him to New York as his research assistant the previous year (in the episode entitled "The Apprentice" during the series' first season). Even if he hadn't spent several days with Hart, Kingsfield would surely remember such an outstanding student in his class after a hiatus of only a few months.
