Storyline

Eddie Capra was an impulsive and unorthodox attorney with the Los Angeles firm of Devlin, Linkman & O'Brien who seemed to see his job as being as much of a detective as a lawyer. Every episode would chronicle a strange and puzzling murder, the perpetrator of which would be doggedly tracked down and captured by Eddie using his skills as an investigator and the assistance of secretary Lacey and legman Harvey.

Well Worth Watching If You Can Find It
5 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this show too. I was a little kid who watched a lot of TV but this show really stood out. It was funny and well written with quality work from Swofford et al. Baggetta was a real find too playing a real street smart, smart aleck type... an urban Poirot! Seven Ann was the cute kid... Phillips was, if memory serves, delectable as the female lead. Really too bad this one didn't go the distance... ahead of its time perhaps .. years before Goodfellas or the Sopranos would lead to actors like Joe Pesci or movies like Analyze This would allow actors with a distinctly urban Italian attitude and speech to find their services in high demand. Too bad a good guy of this type didn't fly... though if you're a fan of Hill Street Blues.. Baggetta's role as a corrupt cop is one of the most chilling portrayals this side of Ray Sharkey or Dennis Franz!
