Todd Spurrier: Jack...I didn't want to say anything in front of the little girl, but you know what, it's embarrassing you doing GP law. It's demeaning. Come on, landlord disputes, Punch and Judy leash law violations? You are working the five-and-dime, pal. Makes me sad to see.

Idiot Programmers consistently blow it
7 December 2007 | by (Santa Rosa, CA) – See all my reviews

THis show is actually an easy 10. Great writing. Even after years... I simply can't get it out of my head even after more than 15 years....

Elizabeth Pena in a breakout role. Jamey Sheridan was Shannon... a flawed big-time attorney with a gambling jones that brought him down, now starting from scratch with hard luck cases in a low rent district, shadowed by Richard Edson as a literature spouting hood enforcer trying to collect on back debts...

Just awesome.... but the programmers kept interrupting the flow and the schedule and destroyed any chance of continuity...

Sheridan's compulsive gambler has nothing on my own obsessive waiting for the return or at least the DVD...but knowing the number crunching numbskulls, this treasure may stay buried forever.

Too bad, because the beautifully sad-comic story arc of rise-fall-and redemption is moving and gritty and inspiring.

.... and the characters... wow....they were each simply great.

sad... sad.... maybe cable can revive and redo it with a twist.
