User Reviews

Street Legal was a legal drama centered on a small law firm in Toronto.
3 October 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Street Legal was a classic of Canadian TV with crackling scripts, excellent performances and relevant story lines that took in the headlines of the day. Toronto was like a character on the series as the multi cultural nature of the city, both the positive and negative were dealt with on the show. The lawyer characters on the show had different areas of expertise which were often in conflict. Leon was a left wing democratic socialist, who at one point in the series ran for Mayor of Toronto. Others on the firm dealt with criminal or business matters. Juggling the firm's different interests was often a point of conflict. CBC's Street Legal is still fondly remembered today in Canada 10 years after it went off the air for its coverage of the issues mixed up with soapy sexy story lines that kept the viewers coming back. Chuck and Olivia became the most famous fictional TV couple in Canadian history with their on again, off again affair. At one time Street Legal ran on Friday nights after the popular comedies of The Kids In The Hall and Codco, which gave the network a power house line up.
