For those who left the theater after the credits rolled on Sydney Pollack's 1993 film The Firm and wondered what happened to Tom Cruise’s Mitch McDeere and his family after bringing down a mobbed and corrupt law firm, last year’s short-lived but fast-paced series of the same name answers that question: a decade in the witness protection service. The series picks up after that, and while it may only have gotten one season, The Firm covers a lot of ground in an impressive 22-episode arc, with both a primary and secondary plot. It does so with an impressive cast that starts with Josh Lucas but also includes Juliette Lewis, Callum Keith Rennie, Molly Parker, Tricia Helfer, and Martin Donovan, and a quasi-episodic formula that is both the series’ greatest strength and the likely cause of its demise.
